  Cowboys | Dallas comes up just short in Week 17    Sun Jan 3, 05:39 PM

Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton completed 29-of-47 passes for 243 yards, no touchdowns and an interception in Week 17 against the New York Giants while posting a game-high 48 rushing yards. RB Ezekiel Elliott also added 14 runs for 42 yards, while RB Tony Pollard rushed five times for 15 yards. TE Dalton Schultz topped the charts with seven catches for 70 yards, while WR Michael Gallup contributed four receptions for 49 yards on eight targets. WR CeeDee Lamb wrapped up his rookie season with five grabs for 43 yards on seven targets, while WR Amari Cooper capped the season with six grabs for 41 yards on nine targets. DE Demarcus Lawrence posted four stops, a sack, a tackle for loss and two quarterback hits.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys had trouble moving the ball against the Giants defense and came up short with a chance to win late in the game. Mike McCarthy will be back next year but this season has to be considered a disappointment.

Dallas Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (shoulder, knee), DE DeMarcus Lawrence (knee) and OT Tyron Smith (neck) were limited in practice Friday, Oct. 2, but have been removed from the injury report for Week 4 versus the Cleveland Browns.

Footballguys view: Smith being off of the injury report is great news for the Cowboys offense, which was rolling the fourth and fifth string tackles out there. Not that there's a lot of room to improve statistically, but this should help the offense's efficiency.

  Cowboys | Dallas' injury report for Week 3    Fri Sep 25, 06:11 PM

Dallas Cowboys CB Chidobe Awuzie (hamstring) did not practice all week and has been ruled out for Week 3 versus the Seattle Seahawks. OT Tyron Smith (neck) also did not practice all week but is listed as questionable. DE DeMarcus Lawrence (knee) was upgraded to a limited practice Friday, Sept. 25, but is also listed as questionable. CB Trevon Diggs (shoulder) practiced in full for a second straight day Friday and has been removed from the injury report.

Footballguys view: The Cowboys will hope that Smith can return but the Seahawks pass rush isn't that imposing on the edge and Dak Prescott showed he can still put big numbers with his #4 and #5 offensive tackles last week. Everson Griffen and Aldon Smith are both better IDP plays than a banged up Lawrence.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence signs extension    Fri Sep 11, 11:08 AM

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence signed a one-year, voidable extension Friday, Sept. 11, that converts $15 million of his base salary into a signing bonus. The move clears $12 million in cap space. The move ensures he gets paid this season even in the event the league shuts down or games are canceled.

Footballguys view: This could be money to help with a Dak Prescott extension, but the past indicates that we shouldn't assume that they are in a hurry to get one done.

Footballguys view: The Packers edge rushers will benefit from Smith's absence, but Collins should be back to help the running game against a Green Bay defense that had a lot of trouble with the Eagles ground attack last week.

  Cowboys | Thursday injuries from Big D    Thu Oct 3, 05:09 PM

LB Luke Gifford (ankle), P Chris Jones (back/knee/shoulder), LB Sean Lee (knee) and S Xavier Woods (ankle) were full participants.

Footballguys view: Smith's injury wasn't serious but the offense would certainly miss him. The Packers gave up a lot in the running game last week and get good pressure on the quarterback, so Smith being out might encourage the Cowboys to be more conservative.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) and DT Tyrone Crawford (hip) hopefully will be ready to play Week 1, according to head coach Jason Garrett.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) and DT Tyrone Crawford (hip) are expected to come off the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Aug. 20.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence targeting opener    Sun Jul 28, 02:57 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder), currently on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list and unable to practice while recovering from shoulder surgery, is still aiming to play in the team's Sept. 8 season opener against the New York Giants. 'I have a date in my mind when I'm going to be ready, and that's the season opener,' Lawrence said. 'I'm not saying I'm going to overload my workload for the season opener or what they want to do with me or have me off the PUP list by the season opener, but hopefully be ready by the season opener.'

Footballguys view: This makes it sound like Lawrence could miss the season opener. IDP drafters should be cautious about spending a high pick on him until there are signs that he'll be ready to play in September. The team reportedly also expects him to be ready, so that's encouraging, but it would be more encouraging to see him on the field this summer.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) said his main goal is to be ready to play Week 1.

Footballguys view: He is expected to start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. We'll see if he can be healthy enough towards the end of August to start the regular season opener. If he suffers any setbacks, the team could put him on the PUP list to begin the regular season but at this point that doesn't seem likely.

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder) likely will start training camp on the Physically Unable to Perform list. The team believes Lawrence will be ready for Week 1.

Footballguys view: No surprise here. Lawrence has been recovering from shoulder surgery and there's a chance he is ready for the start of the regular season. If there are any snags in his recovery, Lawrence might not be able to get onto the field until September or October. We'll know more about Lawrence's recovery in the month of August.

  Cowboys | Several players to miss workouts    Fri May 24, 07:52 PM

Dallas Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (shoulder), CB Byron Jones (hip), DE Christian Covington (calf), DE Taco Charlton (ankle, shoulder) and WR Allen Hurns (ankle) will not participate in the offseason workouts because of injuries.

Footballguys view: Of these, Charlton is probably the most worrisome, as the team has gotten little contributions from him in the first two years of his rookie deal after going in the first round in 2017. Hurns could fall behind Randall Cobb for slot duties while he is out if Cobb develops early chemistry with Dak Prescott.

  Cowboys | DeMarcus Lawrence agrees to deal    Fri Apr 5, 06:57 PM

Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys franchise free-agent DE DeMarcus Lawrence agreed to a five-year contract with the Cowboys worth $105 million, according to a source. The deal includes $65 million in guaranteed money.

Footballguys view: Lawrence was franchise tagged two years in a row and was threatening to hold out if a new long-term contract was not agreed upon. Now, Lawrence is the highest paid 4-3 defensive end in the NFL. He will undergo shoulder surgery now (which the Cowboys knew about) and should be back in time for training camp.
