Cowboys' Sean Lee: Expected to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lee (hamstring) is expected to play Sunday against the 49ers, Jane Slater of the NFL Network reports.

Lee, who hasn't played since Week 3 due to a strained hamstring, is set to practice Wednesday, though it isn't clear what level of participation he'll have. It wouldn't be a surprise if he took limited reps all week due to the tricky nature of hamstring injuries.

Cowboys' Darren McFadden: Could remain inactive in Week 7
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McFadden could be included among the Cowboys' seven inactives for the Week 7 matchup with the 49ers after starting running back Ezekiel Elliott was granted a temporary restraining order Tuesday for his six-game suspension, the Associated Press reports.

Since being handed the suspension during the preseason in August, Elliott has had the ban overturned twice by the courts, and it remains unlikely that the saga has concluded. However, the most recent legal decision at least tentatively puts Elliott on track to play Sunday against San Francisco, meaning that McFadden will likely miss out on an opportunity to earn his first snaps of 2017. With Elliott having suited up in all five games to date, Alfred Morris has acted as his primary backup, while the lone other running back on the roster, Rod Smith, has seen the bulk of his snaps on special teams. Since McFadden doesn't offer any value on the special teams units, the Cowboys have little reason to keep him active as a third-string option when all of their other running backs are available.

Cowboys' Alfred Morris: Likely to back up Elliott on Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Morris is expected to remain in a backup role Sunday against the 49ers after starting running back Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension was put on hold when a federal judge granted a temporary restraining order Tuesday to block the NFL's suspension, the Associated Press reports.

It's already the second time this season that Elliott has had the suspension -- which was first levied in August -- held up by the courts, which has allowed the second-year back to play in all five of the Cowboys' games to date. The league will have a representative appear in U.S. District court some time on or before Oct. 30 to argue why the suspension should not be blocked, so for the time being, it appears unlikely that the Elliott situation has reached a resolution. As a result, Morris still warrants attention in deeper leagues, particularly as a handcuff for Elliott owners in the event that Elliott does end up serving a suspension at some point. When both are active on game days, however, Morris won't be in line for more than a handful of touches.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: Gets another stay on suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott (suspension) was issued a temporary restraining order Tuesday, allowing him to play Sunday at San Francisco, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Typically on the side of the NFL, the Southern District of New York ruled in Elliott's favor this time around. Because Judge Katherine Failla won't return from vacation until the end of the month, Elliott should be able to suit up in both Week 7 and Week 8, pushing off the legal fight for the time being. Elliott will thus handle the ground game for the Cowboys for the rest of October.

Cowboys' Ezekiel Elliott: May request en banc hearing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Elliott's (suspension) representation is expected to request an en banc hearing of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, Albert Breer of TheMMQB.com reports.

The development would come after the 5th Circuit Court itself released a mandate regarding a rehearing, mentioning the court is unlikely to take on the case again. If the court denies the upcoming request, Elliott's team would be forced to take the fight to the NFL's turf in the Southern District of New York. While the legal process continues to play out, the NFL has reinstated Elliott's six-game suspension, which will begin Oct. 22 and extend through Thanksgiving, assuming there isn't another stay. The Cowboys would rely on Alfred Morris and Darren McFadden out of the backfield in the event the ban remains on the books.
