  Cowboys | Morris Claiborne plans to play in opener    Fri Aug 29, 04:15 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (shoulder) didn't play in the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, because of a right shoulder injury. He's dealing with a sprained AC joint but isn't expected to be out for much longer. Claiborne says he'll be ready for Week 1 against the San Francisco 49ers. He took part in practice this week and said he has full range of motion in his shoulder. He will receive a pre-game injection to help him deal with the pain next Sunday, Sept. 7.

Dallas Cowboys CB Dashaun Phillips (undisclosed) was placed on no-recall waivers from the Reserve/Injured list with an injury settlement Thursday, Aug. 28.


  Cowboys | Phillip Tanner signed    Thu Aug 28, 02:05 PM

The Dallas Cowboys have signed free-agent RB Phillip Tanner (Colts). Terms of the contract were not disclosed. The team also waived CB B.W. Webb.

Footballguys view: This is just a matter of needing another runner with several dealing with injuries. Don't go running to the waiver wire tonight as he won't be here long.

  Cowboys | DAL interests Adrian Peterson    Thu Aug 28, 01:01 PM

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson had a phone conversation with Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones in June where he stated he would be interested in joining the Cowboys when his time with the Vikings is over. Jones said he has not talked with Peterson since the phone call and does not believe that the call should be considered tampering.

Footballguys view: As Bleacher Report NFC North Lead Writer Zach Kruse tweeted earlier, Adrian Peterson's cap hit this year is $14.4M. It goes up to $15.4M next season but the cap hit if Peterson is traded or released next year is only $2.4M. The Vikings have to be looking at the numbers on Peterson given his age, but it's hard to imagine him in any jersey but purple. There are a lot of reasons this won't happen from the Dallas end as well. First, the Cowboys have more vital needs so even if the Vikings cut Peterson, would Jerry Jones really ignore the very real issues on the defensive side of the ball? Secondly, it would cost Jones either picks or money - or both - and the price would likely be too steep. It's a fun game of "what if" but the top five fantasy back will remain in Minnesota and at most we may see a revamp of his contract next offseason,

  Cowboys | Morris Claiborne likely to sit    Thu Aug 28, 12:20 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne (knee, shoulder) likely will not play in the final preseason game, according to executive vice president Stephen Jones.

Footballguys view: No big deal as most starters sit. Sure, the Cowboy secondary needs all the help he can get but they need Claiborne long term and shouldn't risk him for a preseason game.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant met with owner/general manager Jerry Jones Tuesday, Aug. 26, to discuss his contract situation, according to sources. The two sides have talked about a contract extension for months but no deal has been reached at this point. The biggest obstacle in the talks appears to be the guaranteed money included in the deal.

  Cowboys | May carry four RB's    Wed Aug 27, 05:51 AM

Dallas Cowboys RB's DeMarco Murray and Lance Dunbar are locks to make the 53-man roster, and RB's Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams are battling for the third spot. However, executive vice president Stephen Jones did not rule out all four making the squad.

Footballguys view: Randle helps on special teams, while Williams is purely a running back. That the Cowboys could keep four backs is a sign of how much Randle has improved and how much Williams can provide as a back now. If Williams is released, he could get a call from another team soon.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant deal by Thursday?    Tue Aug 26, 08:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant could have a new contract before the team's preseason finale Thursday, Aug. 28, sources in Dallas told NFL Media columnist Michael Silver.

Footballguys view: This would be a coup for the Cowboys, but it will also probably be another ticket to cap hell and a contract that can be restructured repeatedly. Either way, the Cowboys choice of Bryant in the first round of the 2010 draft has been very wise in hindsight and we should congratulate Jerry Jones on that.

The Dallas Cowboys waived WR Chris Boyd, P Tom Hornsey, LS Casey Kreiter, DE Adewale Ojomo and OG Wayne Tribue Tuesday, Aug. 26.

Footballguys view: Boyd is a rangy receiver who was productive before getting kicked off the Vanderbilt team, but he couldn't even make it to the last round of cuts for the Cowboys.

  Cowboys | Anthony Spencer to come off PUP    Tue Aug 26, 01:05 PM

Updating a previous item, Dallas Cowboys DE Anthony Spencer (knee) will be activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list soon, but he still will not be ready to play in Week 1, according to owner Jerry Jones. The team is optimistic Spencer can play as soon as Week 2.

Footballguys view: Spencer has been a money hole for the Cowboys over the last two years, but with a short-handed defensive line, they have to take their chances that he'll be able to help this year sooner than later.

  Cowboys | Dez Bryant willing to wait on contract    Tue Aug 26, 01:00 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is prepared to table contract discussions with the team if he doesn't have a new long-term deal by the beginning of the regular season. 'I don't want to talk about it anymore,' Bryant said. 'Put it behind me. I love this game. Either way, I feel like I can't be distracted once I'm on the football field.' He's due to be paid $1.78 million this year in the final year of his rookie deal. Bryant feels good progress has been made and that there is a 'big chance' a deal is struck before Week 1.

Footballguys view: Bryant is going to get one of the largest WR contracts in NFL history, and the cast-strapped Cowboys might not be able to afford his demands. Bryant has come a long way from earlier in his career, when there was a report that Dallas was not inclined to re-sign him at the end of his rookie deal.

  Cowboys | Henry Melton feels good    Tue Aug 26, 12:40 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Henry Melton (groin, knee) said he has been a full participant in practice, and his groin and knee feel great.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys defense hasn't had much good news this preseason, but this qualifies. Melton can at least draw some attention from blockers as a formerly disruptive interior pass rusher who is trying to bounce back from a 2013 ACL tear.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo practices    Tue Aug 26, 10:54 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is practicing Tuesday, Aug. 26. He won't play in the final preseason game this week.

Footballguys view: Romo is still "safe" as a low QB1 with mid QB1 upside. The Cowboys defense has been good enough to keep teams from playing keep away, and Romo's back needs to feel ok, but at the cheap 8th/9th round price, those risks are easy to tolerate.

  Cowboys | Dwayne Harris injured    Sat Aug 23, 08:13 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Dwayne Harris (hip) suffered a hip injury during the third preseason game but may be able to return to the game at some point.

Footballguys view: Harris is competing to be the team's WR3 behind Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams. He's an elusive runner after the catch, essentially transforming into a running back with the ball in his hands. Regardless of where he ends up on the WR depth chart, Harris is set to be the Cowboys' top return man.

  Cowboys | Joseph Randle has rib injury    Sat Aug 23, 08:13 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Joseph Randle (rib) suffered a rib injury during the third preseason game. His return is considered questionable.

Footballguys view: Randle has fallen behind Lance Dunbar in the competition to be the primary backup behind Demarco Murray this year. We'll see if he can bounce back from this rib injury and play in the final preseason game.

  Cowboys | Gavin Escobar update    Fri Aug 22, 01:11 PM

Dallas Cowboys TE Gavin Escobar (shoulder) was able to practice some this week, and is hoping to play in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 23. Escobar is in extra padding to protect the injury. 'You can only contribute if you're on the field, so that's what I've got to do,' said Escobar.

Footballguys view: Escobar is going to compete as the TE2 behind Jason Witten once again this year. He doesn't have much fantasy value unless Witten is out...and even then his ability isn't top notch.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo ready for season    Thu Aug 21, 02:37 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) said he is ready for the regular season. Romo said he had a good week of practice with no limitations as he returns from offseason back surgery.

Footballguys view: Good news for the Cowboys and Romo owners, as the borderline QB1 is healthy and ready. The Cowboys will occasionally take it easy on him between now and the regular season, but that's just caution and nothing to worry about. If the defense is as bad as it looks, he could be in for a big year in terms of yardage totals.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo practicing    Thu Aug 21, 11:24 AM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) is participating in practice Wednesday, Aug. 21. Romo will be able to play in the third preseason game.

Footballguys view: This is good news but we were never really worried. The Cowboys were always going to be cautious around and with Romo, so the occasional streak of missed practices aren't a big deal. Of course, there is concern about his health and back during the season, so keep that in mind when grabbing backups if you select Romo as your starter. He's a borderline QB1/QB2 so a little extra caution in grabbing a backup is in order.
