12/18/17WRBrice ButlerFootQUESTIONABLEButler (foot) was downgraded to out and won't be traveling with the team for Sunday's game in Oakland, The Dallas Morning News reports.

Butler sat out Week 14 with the foot issue and will miss his second consecutive game after not practicing this week. The 27-year-old has played a minimal role in the Cowboys' passing game the second half of the season, while Noah Brown or Ryan Switzer should serve as the team's No.4 wide receiver Sunday.

12/18/17LBJustin DurantConcussionQUESTIONABLEDurant (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Durant was able to put in a pair of full practices this week, but it appears he failed to receive clearance from an independent neurologist, which would have enabled him to return to game action. Until Durant passes that final hurdle in the concussion protocol, he won't be eligible to appear in any contests.

12/18/17DLDavid IrvingConcussionQUESTIONABLEIrving (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Irving hasn't practiced since sustaining the head injury in the first quarter of the Cowboys' Week 12 win over the Redskins. The nose tackle has wreaked havoc on the interior when he's been able to play this season, amassing 22 tackles and seven sacks in eight games. Look for Richard Ash to fill in for him Sunday in what amounts to a major downgrade.

12/18/17DBOrlando ScandrickBackQUESTIONABLEScandrick (back) was officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Scandrick did not practice this week as he deals with two transverse spinal fractures he sustained in last Sunday's win over the Redskins. Rookie cornerbacks Jourdan Lewis and Chidobe Awuzie should see heavily increased snap roles in Scandrick's absence against the Giants.

11/12/17RBEzekiel ElliottSuspensionSUSPENDElliott is scheduled to report to the Cowboys on Monday when his six-game suspension comes to a conclusion, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Since withdrawing his appeal of the suspension in mid-November, Elliott has been doing "intense training" in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico over the past six weeks, according to Rapoport. Elliott is said to be in terrific shape, with a recent picture of the second-year running back seemingly revealing a slimmer physique than he sported earlier in the season. The fact that Elliott has been able to keep himself in shape bodes well for his chances of reclaiming lead-back duties right away in Week 16 against the Seahawks as the Cowboys attempt to keep their playoff hopes alive.

01/06/17DLRandy GregorySuspensionSUSPENDThe NFL isn't expected to clear Gregory (suspension) if he decides to apply for reinstatement when first eligible to do so Nov. 6, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports.

Gregory was handed a one-year suspension from the league in January 2017 following multiple failed drug tests, so even if he were reinstated after the year is up, it would come after the current regular season has already concluded. While he's reportedly spent significant time in a rehab facility over the past year and had passed league-administered tests as recently as September, optimism regarding Gregory's reinstatement has seemed to fade over the past few weeks. Sources close to the situation declined to provide specifics behind why Gregory's reinstatement could be delayed, but the Cowboys will wait for the defensive end to get his personal life in order until he's comfortable pursuing a return to professional football. Gregory has appeared in just 14 games for the Cowboys since being selected in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft.
