Smith recently parted ways with an AFO foot brace that had been used as part of his broader recovery process. Even if he's stuck with the brace when Week 1 kicks off, the mere notion that we're discussing the possibility of a brace-free Smith is encouraging. The former Notre Dame standout is stacked full of potential, but only time will tell if he's ready to breakout in 2018.
Jones' dismissal hints that the 49ers may be preparing to activate fellow defensive end Tank Carradine (ankle) from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's matchup with the Seahawks. The 2013 first-round pick appeared in three games for the 49ers, logging six tackles and no sacks.
Williams spent three games on the Cowboys' 53-man roster during Ezekiel Elliott's six-game suspension, but was a healthy scratch for each contest. The 25-year-old hasn't seen game action since a brief two-game stint with the Colts to close the 2015 season.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones both suggested Austin would get most of his playing time as a running back, but Linehan seems to have a slightly different vision. The 2013 first-round pick filled a variety of roles during his time with the Rams, serving as an outside receiver, slot receiver, passing-down back, punt returner and kick returner. He never truly thrived outside of the return game, and things even fell apart on that front last season when he struggled with ball security. Austin's best trick was his proficiency on jet sweeps, which helped atone for his lackluster receiving efforts as a slot man. Jerry Jones mentioned finding "a dozen or two dozen" touches per game for Austin, but something in the range of 5-10 (including special teams) would make a lot more sense. Austin had a personal best of 141 touches (8.8 per game) in 2015, with 52 catches, 52 carries, 34 punt returns and three kickoff returns.
In the wake of Witten's retirement, it's Jarwin and not Rico Gathers (concussion/jaw) who's been drawing the most praise from the coaching staff and front office. As a rookie, Jarwin suited up for only one game last year, and his college career doesn't suggest a player who's going to suddenly blossom as a pass-catcher, but the 23-year-old fits the mold of recent Cowboys depth tight ends who were versatile enough to handle both blocking and receiving assignments without tipping the defense's hand as to whether Dallas was about to run or pass. Barring the addition of a veteran free agent tight end, Jarwin seems set to inherit a lot of snaps with Witten gone, but it's a longer shot that he'll be able to turn them into much fantasy production.
Collins broke the fifth metatarsal in his left foot in May during the Cowboys' offseason conditioning program and is still recovering from surgery to repair the fracture. It doesn't sound like he was able to do any meaningful work on the field during the team's minicamp this week, so it may be difficult for the Cowboys to bank on Collins making enough progress over the next month to take snaps with the first-team defense when camp opens. If Collins remains sidelined for the first week or two of camp, the Cowboys could consider shifting him to the Physically Unable to Perform list in order to create more room on the roster.
Elliott's 74.3 percent career catch rate (58 of 78 targets) is mediocre for a running back, but he owns impressive marks of 10.9 yards per catch and 8.1 per target, thanks to a pair of big plays -- gains of 83 and 72 -- that account for 24.5 percent of his receiving yards. While unlikely to reach the Le'Veon Bell/David Johnson level, Elliott should draw four or five looks per game as the Cowboys try to replace Bryant and Witten's 220 combined targets. Elliott led the league with 24.2 carries per game last season, and while he only averaged 2.6 catches and 3.8 targets, he typically stayed on the field for passing downs.
Frederick will shift most of his $10 million base salary for the season into a signing bonus, which frees up space for the Cowboys to sign linebacker Joe Thomas and receiver Deonte Thompson.
Smith dealt with a nagging back injury the past two seasons, and he also had groin, hip and knee issues in 2017. He sat out three full games and significant parts of two others, with those five contests accounting for 19 of the 32 sacks Dallas allowed all season. The team signed Cameron Fleming and Marcus Martin in March, adding some O-line depth to complement the elite trio of Smith, RG Zack Martin and C Travis Frederick. Smith has a new offseason regimen that he expects will help take pressure off his back and keep him healthy for the upcoming season. He's only missed seven games in seven NFL campaigns, but six of those absences occurred within the past two years. A healthy 2018 season for Smith would be great news for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott.
Ward suited up for just five games in 2017, posting two tackles (one solo) and one sack. The third-year pro wouldn't see many snaps in Dallas as a defensive end, so he'll likely bump to defensive tackle, where he'll work in a reserve role in 2018.
Jackson was one of the Cowboys' four sixth-round draft picks in 2016. He was let go by the team in December of that year, quickly being picked up by the Browns afterward. He spent all of 2017 on IR and has yet to appear in a regular season contest. The Browns released him in early May of this year.
Williams has been limited to working out on the side during this week's minicamp while recovering from a procedure he required earlier in the offseason to repair the fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Even if Williams remains a spectator for the start of camp, it's not expected that the injury will be anything that lingers into the start of the upcoming campaign. In light of the offseason departures of Dez Bryant and Jason Witten and the lack of any major additions to the Dallas receiving corps through the draft or free agency, Williams could enter 2018 as quarterback Dak Prescott's top target.
His 4.8 yards per carry average was his best mark since his rookie season in 2012. Kept on in Dallas as an insurance policy, Morris got his chance to shine while Ezekiel Elliott served a six-game suspension late in the season, with the high-water mark of his campaign being a 27-carry, 127-yard explosion against his former Washington club in Week 13. Morris will head into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent, and while he's highly unlikely to get any offers that would make him a full-time starter once again, he's proven his value as a backup or committee RB who can handle a big workload if necessary.
Woods was waived earlier in May by the Titans with an injury settlement. Considering he's signed a deal with the Cowboys, there appears to be a chance he's healthy, or close to being healthy.
This is a sizable blow to the Cowboys' defensive front, as they are still awaiting the ruling on Randy Gregory's chance at reinstatement after he was suspended for an entire year. It also puts Irving in a difficult spot, as not only is this the second straight suspension to start the season for the defensive tackle, but he could be in line for a huge payday with a productive 2018 season. Irving will be eligible to return to the field for Week 5's road matchup with the Texans.
The second-year receiver was considered something of a Bryant clone when he was drafted out of Ohio State in the seventh round in 2017, albeit one with a lot less production in college, and with the real thing now off the roster, the Cowboys don't have another big, physical wideout in the mix. If he's improved his strength and route running in the offseason, he could at least emerge as a red-zone option for Dak Prescott, but a more significant jump in his development could allow Brown to challenge Deonte Thompson for a starting role on the outside in camp.
The 28th overall pick in the 2017 draft got his NFL career off to a slow start, not recording his first sack until Week 9, and he never rose above being a depth option in the Cowboys' pass-rush rotation. Bigger things will be expected from Charlton next season, especially if David Irving (concussion) doesn't return to Dallas, but he still has a lot to prove before he'll be on the IDP radar.
It has been nearly two weeks since Tapper suffered the concussion during OTAs, but it looks like he has cleared protocol in time for the start of the team's mandatory minicamp. Given the seriousness of concussions and Tapper's injury history, the team will likely ease the defensive end back into the swing of things.
Released by the Jaguars on March 20 and signed to a two-year, $11 million contract just a few days later, Hurns may end up assuming the No. 1 receiver mantle in Dallas, though the team figures to take a close look at the top wideouts in the upcoming draft. Terrance Williams is recovering from foot surgery after failing to score a single touchdown last season, while Cole Beasley is a slot specialist and fellow offseason addition Deonte Thompson profiles as a low-volume deep threat. Hurns offers the most complete skill set of the bunch, boasting career marks of 8.0 yards per target and 51.3 receiving yards per game, with experience both outside and in the slot. He was held to 74 catches for 961 yards and five touchdowns over 21 games the past two seasons, but injuries were a big part of the problem both years, and Blake Bortles was simply awful in 2016. The 26-year-old wideout figures to be an important part of a Dallas offense that wants to throw downfield more often this upcoming season, as he's likely ticketed for a starting job even if the team uses its first-round pick on another receiver.
Before injuring his shoulder, Awuzie was able to haul in his first career interception Sunday. The rookie second-round pick has seen an increased role in the four previous games, making 16 tackles and breaking up six passes. Awuzie proved a lot down the final stretch, so he should be on fantasy radars once the 2018 season approaches.
All seven of those misses came in the final four games of the season, and it's fair to wonder whether Bailey rushed back too soon from a groin injury that kept him out of action from Weeks 8-11. The normally reliable kicker will get the whole offseason to heal and correct any bad habits that crept into his technique down the stretch, and he should be back to his usual self in 2018.
Dysert spent the entire 2017 campaign on injured reserve due to a back issue. It's possible the Cowboys could re-sign Dysert later this offseason and bring him to training camp as a depth quarterback, but he'll be free to sign with any team now that he's back on the open market.
He has yet to miss a game in his three-year NFL career, but while Wilson was the starting strong-side linebacker on the depth chart, he actually only started nine games and routinely came off the field in passing situations. With Jaylon Smith expected to take another step forward in 2018, Wilson's role seems unlikely to grow even if Anthony Hitchens departs in free agency.
After being cut by the Cowboys following training camp, Neal will be added to a 53-man roster for the first time in his NFL career. The undrafted rookie out of LSU will take the spot of Brian Price (knee), who is headed to season-ending injured reserve.
The Cowboys released Bryant on April 13, at which point most teams had already used up the majority of their cap space set aside for veteran acquisitions. The Ravens showed strong initial interest in Bryant, but their quick pivot to Willie Snead suggests the feeling wasn't mutual. The 29-year-old wideout hasn't minced words about his preference to stay in the NFC East, with New York seemingly his preferred destination. The Giants did release Brandon Marshall (ankle) last week in a move that cleared $5.2 million off their books, but the team still has a tight cap situation. Bryant might only be the third or fourth option in the passing game if he were to ultimately get his wish, as the Giants will bring back receivers Odell Beckham (ankle) and Sterling Shepard as well as tight end Evan Engram. Bryant is hoping to sign a one-year contract, which would allow him to hit the open market again next March, per freelance NFL reporter Ed Werder.
March-Lillard was waived Saturday by the Seahawks after playing exclusively on special teams during his lone game with the team. The 24-year-old is likely to see a similar role in Dallas now that middle linebacker Anthony Hitchens has returned from a knee injury.
Showers signed with Dallas' practice squad as a quarterback in early September but was then converted to safety. With a full offseason working in the secondary he may be able to secure a role as a depth safety and special teams player in 2017.
Ealy spent last season with the Jets, recording just 14 tackles, including one sack, on the year, though he did add an impressive nine passes defensed, including one interception. A second-round pick of the Panthers in 2014, Ealy fell off from the form of his first three seasons, which saw him record at least four sacks each year. He'll be looking to bounce back from what was a down season, though he'll likely be a bit buried on the Cowboys depth chart and have to earn any snaps he eventually gets.
Olawale has served as Oakland's fullback since 2013, typically playing more snaps on special teams than offense. The Cowboys and Raiders are swapping fullbacks, as Keith Smith recently left Dallas to sign with Oakland. Olawale isn't much of a lead blocker, but he has the necessary speed and pass-blocking skill to fill in as a passing-down back in a pinch. He'll likely continue to see most of his snaps on special teams.
He got down to 265 pounds last season to try and improve his foot speed as a receiver, but Gathers is now back up to his college basketball playing weight. "Last year was a big adjustment," Gathers said Wednesday from the Cowboys' last OTA session. "I was going for more trying to be quicker, trying to be faster. But that hurt me in the blocking game a lot where I felt like I was just a body, just a body catching a blow." His ability to make some contribution as a blocker could be the biggest factor in the size of Gathers' role this season with the Cowboys, but the team likely won't have a clear sense of how far he's progressed on that front until the preseason.
Fleming played in 12 games for the Patriots last season with six starts at tackle. The 25-year-old could potentially start at right tackle for the Cowboys -- which would move La'el Collins to left guard -- but at the very least he provides quality depth at tackle, a weakness illustrated due to the injury troubles of starting left tackle Tyron Smith (knee) in 2017.
The undrafted free agent mostly watched from the sidelines behind starting quarterback Dak Prescott, but the Cowboys feel Rush has the potential to develop into an NFL-caliber signal caller down the road. The team may bring in some competition for him in training camp, but in all likelihood, Rush will enter 2018 as the team's No. 2 quarterback. Barring an injury to Prescott next season, Rush's action would likely be limited to garbage time once again.
The rookie spent most of the season behind Byron Jones and Jeff Heath on the depth chart, but Woods started the last four games and, for the most part, didn't look out of place with the additional snaps. The 2018 season will be a new start for the safety, and Heath's limitations in coverage could open the door for Woods to claim a bigger role in the Cowboys' secondary if he shows offseason improvement.
Thomas suffered some sort of lower-leg injury in the third preseason game. Barring an injury settlement, he's likely stuck on IR through the end of the season.
The 29-year-old inked a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys just over two months ago, but won't even stick around with the team for the start of its offseason program. Prior to signing with Dallas, Vellano played four games for the Falcons in 2017, marking his first action since the 2014 campaign.
A quick decision from the NFL isn't likely, and the Cowboys may not find out if Gregory will be available for the 2018 campaign until training camp. The 25-year-old defensive end has failed at least five drug tests since being taken in the second round of the 2015 draft, and he managed only one sack in 14 NFL games before sitting out all of last season.
Collins missed practice on Wednesday but was able to return in limited fashion on Thursday and Friday. He played through his back injury to see his typical role along the starting offensive line last week and appears set to do so once again.
The turnaround between implementation of the tender by the Cowboys and Lawrence accepting it took a mere six hours Monday. With one of the league's top sack artists locked up, the team now faces a deadline of July 16 to come to terms on a long-term deal, or else he'll play out the 2018 campaign on the aforementioned tag. Logging 67 percent of the Cowboys' defensive snaps last year, Lawrence ranked second in the NFL with 14.5 sacks, behind only Chandler Jones' 17 and matching the Jaguars' Calais Campbell, the 2017 Defensive Player of the Year.
Dallas went on a bit of shopping spree Saturday in trading for speedy wideout Tavon Austin from the Rams. The move comes just one day after the Cowboys selected Colorado State wide receiver Michael Gallup in the third round of the NFL Draft. These two, paired with the new arrivals Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson, pose a bit of a threat to Beasley's long-term plans in Dallas. While there's nothing to suggest the Cowboys would gut Beasley in the coming days, this seems be a developing situation worth keeping tabs on throughout training camp.
Thomas spent the past three seasons with Green Bay, serving primarily as a reserve linebacker and special-teams player. He'll slot in as the backup middle linebacker behind Jaylon Smith in Dallas but could fall behind on the depth chart if the Cowboys elect to add talent at the position through the draft.
That's not saying much -- he's played only 28 games over three seasons in Dallas -- but Swaim is also the only tight end on the depth chart to have caught a pass in a regular-season game, giving him an edge on the current competition as the Cowboys move on from Witten. The 24-year-old is still recuperating from minor knee surgery, but he should be 100 percent by training camp, if not sooner.
Listed at 6-foot-2 and 238 pounds, Prescott doesn't consider this to be a significant change, noting that he always drops a little bit of weight during the offseason and plans to get back to around 230 to 235 pounds by Week 1. The more relevant offseason change occurred in the Dallas wideout group, with the team swapping out Dez Bryant and Brice Butler for Allen Hurns and Deonte Thompson. While it may be a clear downgrade in terms of reputation, Prescott and Bryant rarely seemed to be on the same page last season, as evidenced by the veteran wideout's feeble mark of 6.3 yards per target. With Bryant out the door and Terrance Williams recovering from foot surgery, the Cowboys will likely add at least one wide receiver in the upcoming draft, possibly as early as the first round. Prescott kept fantasy owners reasonably happy with 22 passing touchdowns, six rushing touchdowns and 357 rushing yards last season, but his completion percentage (62.9), yards per attempt (6.8) and interceptions (13) all represented massive steps back from his rookie-year marks (67.8 percent, 8.0 YPA and four picks).
Lenoir saw a roster spot open up when OT Tyron Smith and CB Orlando Scandrick were placed on injured reserve. The undrafted rookie hasn't suited up for an NFL game yet, and with Dez Bryant (knee) and Cole Beasley (illness) nursing ailments, Lenoir could log some time as a situational wideout Sunday in Philly.
Paea has been dealing with this nagging knee injury for weeks, but he only missed the Cowboys' past game against the Packers. With the injury apparently impacting Paea's desire to play, the veteran defensive tackle will call it quits after a solid seven-year career that also included stops in Chicago, Washington and Cleveland. David Irving, Maliek Collins and Brian Price are now the remaining defensive tackles on the Cowboys' roster.
The Cowboys have given no indication that Crawford's injury is serious. Barring setback, he should be back to full strength in the near future and a full participant in training camp.
The surprise of the Cowboys' 2016 defense, Brown made nine starts in 2017 but by the end of the campaign, rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis had muscled past him on the depth chart. Brown's role next season will likely depend as much on whether Orlando Scandrick is back with the team as it does on his own offseason development, but he profiles best in nickel and dime packages rather than as an every-snap starter.
White did not play in the Cowboys first preseason contest, but his return to practice hints that he could be available for team's second exhibition game Saturday. As it currently stands, White projects to function as a depth corner for Dallas this year if he can stay healthy.
The tackles and picks were career highs for Heath, who got his first chance at a regular starting job in the NFL with somewhat mixed results. His high ratio of solo tackles is a testament to his hard-hitting ways in the open field, but it also shows a lack of foot speed that made him a step or two later to the ball than his teammates. With younger safeties like Xavier Woods pushing for bigger roles in 2018, Heath could find it difficult to hang onto his starting spot.
Looney served as a depth interior offensive lineman for the Cowboys last season and underwent wrist surgery in January. The 27-year-old could have a similar role for Dallas in 2018, but the departure of starting left guard Jonathan Cooper to the 49ers could result in some shuffling on the Cowboys' offensive line.
Buried on the RB depth chart to begin the season, Smith opened some eyes with an impressive showing despite limited touches against the 49ers in Week 7, then scored five TDs over a four-game stretch later in the year while Ezekiel Elliott served his suspension. With Alfred Morris potentially not returning to Dallas next season, Smith could head into 2018 as Elliott's top backup.
While he's not dealing with a specific health issue, the Cowboys have been going easy on the oft-injured 31-year-old so far, with Tuesday's appearance on the field being Lee's first in either minicamp or OTAs. While he can't be counted on to play a full 16-game schedule, Lee's per-game IDP production should once again be elite in 2018.
Jones has been the Cowboys' starting punter since 2013 and will be expected to carry the punting torch through at least the 2021 season. Through six seasons, Jones has recorded a net average of 40.9 yards per punt.
While the extension was reported a few days back, the two sides needed to hammer out a few final details, which ended up being finalized Wednesday. Martin now owns the richest contract for the guard position in the NFL, which was well deserved after earning his fourth straight Pro Bowl nod last season, as well as All-Pro second-team honors.
Martin is the likely replacement for Joe Looney, who recently became a free agent. The 24-year-old guard will provide needed depth along the Cowboys' offensive line, and with Jonathan Cooper departing the team this offseason, Martin could have a chance to contend for the starting left guard position in 2018.
The third-round pick had worked his way into the starting lineup by the end of the season and made some big plays, although he also got burned a few times, something that isn't surprising for a first-year cornerback. Lewis figures to be a big part of a young and improving Cowboys secondary in 2018, although his IDP value likely will be limited.
Huff, who joined the team at the start of camp, impressed in special teams, but failed to make enough of an impression in the defensive backfield. If he does not make the team's practice squad he will be forced to look for a new opportunity.
Frazier dealt with a knee injury early on during the 2017 season, but it isn't clear if this recent procedure is related in any way. Regardless, Frazier isn't expected to miss much, if any, of the Cowboys' offseason training program starting in late April.
This fifth-year option will keep Jones signed through the 2019 season. Jones hasn't missed a game in his first three seasons, and he has had back-to-back, 80-tackle seasons as a safety for the Cowboys. However, the 25-year-old will shift back to cornerback this season and is expected to be a starter.
Cannon joined the Cowboys' practice squad in late December after an uneventful 2017 season. The 22-year-old will have the benefit of being in Dallas' offseason program as he turns the page on a quiet rookie season.
Price came to Dallas last offseason and was a regular rotation player until he sustained a minor dislocation of one of his kneecaps. After undergoing a knee scope this offseason, he's expected to be healthy when offseason workouts commence this spring.
Thompson signed a one-year deal with the Vikings this offseason after having a career-best year in 2017. Given that the Cowboys are fairly light on depth at wide receiver, chances are any injury won't affect Thompson's roster standing for the upcoming season, but he does have a real opportunity to carve out a legitimate role in the passing game with an impressive offseason. It's unclear, however, how serious these injuries are at this time and how long Thompson will be out for.
