  Cowboys | Ryan Williams appears to be a longshot     Mon Jul 28, 02:52 PM

Dallas Cowboys RB Ryan Williams looks to be a longshot for the final roster, because he is not a good special teams player and would have to help on special teams if he is in a reserve role.

Footballguys view: We love the natural talent that Williams showed when he came out of Virginia Tech years ago. However, they call the league "Not For Long" for a reason. Williams is certainly on the bubble in Cowboys camp this year. We're afraid that Williams career will always be remembered as "what might have been?"

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will practice Saturday, July 26, for the first time since his back surgery, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

  Cowboys | Tony Romo to miss workouts    Fri Jul 25, 05:47 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo (back) will sit out practice Friday, July 25 as part of a preplanned day off, according to Jason Garrett. Romo is scheduled to take all the first-team reps Saturday, July 26. 'We talked about this beforehand with all of our players. Whenever they are coming back, to be mindful of the two-a-days and what they are doing. You are out here for an hour. It doesn't seem like much. It's a walk through situation. But you warm up for that, cool down and get started again in the afternoon," Garrett said. "We just wanted to make sure we are careful on the two-a-days and then the consecutive two-a-days. I think the schedule sets up pretty well for him the next few days. It gives him a chance to get himself settled in. We will keep an eye on him every day.'

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are looking to keep Romo healthier and cutting down on practice reps seems to be the best way to do it. He'll likely have a few more "pre-planned" off days as the summer goes on and it should pay off by keeping him fresh later in the season. The wear and tear on his back is a real concern. We still see him as a low-end QB1 and missing some practice won't change that.

  Cowboys | No timetable for Brandon Carr's return    Fri Jul 25, 03:42 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Brandon Carr (personal) is not with the team as his mother is in bad health. There is no timetable for his return, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: We wish Carr and his family all the best and hope his mother is able to recover. As always, football is trumped by family. As much as the team needs him, his family needs him more.

  Cowboys | Tyrone Crawford fully healthy     Fri Jul 25, 03:41 PM

Dallas Cowboys DT Tyrone Crawford (Achilles') said he is fully healthy heading into training camp. 'It feels good to be back out here, playing football with my team,' Crawford said. 'I feel good. No pain. No nothing. I'm ready to go.'

Footballguys view: He has felt some more soreness than he expected but otherwise feels very good. The Cowboys have very few warm bodies on the defensive line so he'd better be. He also needs to improve his game over last year's efforts when he gets in the game, though with Henry Melton on the mend, that could be rare.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain sentenced to 18 days in jail    Fri Jul 25, 01:26 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was sentenced to 18 days in jail after being convicted of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors. McClain has appealed the sentence an is flying back to the team's training camp.

Footballguys view: McClain may see some punishment from the NFL as well, now that the case is settled, although an appeal would likely delay that. He's basically on the roster bubble already so this doesn't help his case for staying, despite being traded for earlier in July.

  Cowboys | Rolando McClain found guilty     Fri Jul 25, 01:18 PM

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain was convicted of resisting arrest and disorderly conduct, both misdemeanors, Friday, July 15.

Footballguys view: Because the Dallas Cowboys need more uncertainty on their defense. Really, despite trading for him earlier this month, he isn't a sure thing in terms of making the roster. We'll see if there is a suspension, which should impact the odds on that.

Dallas Cowboys LB Rolando McClain will practice Thursday, July 24, before traveling to a court date in Alabama Friday, July 25. McClain will return to the team Saturday, July 26, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys are hoping that McClain finally plays up to his potential as a pro. He's washed out of the league with the Raiders and the Ravens, but the former standout at Alabama is getting another chance with Dallas. The Cowboys defense took a gut punch when Sean Lee was lost for the season with a knee injury earlier this year.

  Cowboys | Not a make or break year for Jason Garrett    Wed Jul 23, 06:26 PM

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said 2014 is not a make or break year for head coach Jason Garrett.

Footballguys view: Sure thing! Every year seems like a make-or-break year for the Cowboys head coach. If Garrett fails to get the team into the postseason, we could see Jones make a move. Garrett was a hand-picked selection by Jones, so it will be difficult for him to admit it's time to find somebody else.

Footballguys view: Talent has never been a question mark for Murray. He can be used effectively as both a runner and receiver out of the backfield. Murray's current ADP is RB7 (2.02) in 12-team PPR leagues.

Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray thinks the team is making progress and is the most talented squad he has been a part of. "I think you can say that, yeah," Murray said Wednesday. "From the leadership we have and the young guys, I think you can say that."

Footballguys view: We'll see how the Cowboys compete in the wide open NFC East. The offense has some playmakers (like Murray), but the defense is short on talent. Losing linebacker Sean Lee for the season certainly won't help their chances in 2014.

  Cowboys | Devin Street top candidate for No. 5 WR job    Wed Jul 16, 12:10 PM

Dallas Cowboys WR Devin Street is the leading candidate for No. 5 wide receiver job after he had a solid performance during offseason workouts. Street will have to adjust to the more physical style of play in the NFL.

Footballguys view: Street was a fifth-round pick by the Cowboys this year. Measuring in at 6'3", Street has the length to be a quality downfield target. He can track passes over his shoulder regularly, and this helps him beat defenders on long passes. Street needs to be more physical and add some weight to his frame. When he does that, he'll be an even better red-zone target because of his size, wingspan and leaping ability.
