He is listed as doubtful on this week's official injury report.

News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 26): Dalton struggled against Washington and then got knocked out of the game by a dirty hit from Jon Bostic. He might not be available for Week 8 against the Eagles and when he does become available again, he'll only be a desperation play.

General News (Sat Oct 31): on Saturday, Oct. 31, was downgraded from doubtful to out for the Week 8 game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

General News (Fri Oct 30): did not practice on Friday and is not expected to play this week. "If Andy would practice (Saturday), that would be the only chance he would have to play in the game," head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. "As of right now, he's not scheduled to practice."

General News (Thu Oct 29): did not practice on Thursday. It makes Dalton unlikely to play Sunday in Week 8, in the estimation of NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.

General News (Wed Oct 28): did not practice on Wednesday. The Cowboys are preparing Ben DiNucci (or Garrett Gilbert) as their starter. Dalton is still working his way through the concussion protocol. He's not expected to be available until the end of the week - at the earliest. Dallas plays against the Eagles on Sunday night in Week 8.

General News (Wed Oct 28): attended the team meeting Wednesday, Oct. 28, but he hasn't progressed enough to attend positional meetings. He's not expected to be available until the end of the week - at the earliest.

General News (Mon Oct 26): is in the league's concussion protocol, but the team isn't likely to sign another quarterback this week.

Cowboys | Andy Dalton to miss game (Sat Oct 31, 02:22 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) on Saturday, Oct. 31, was downgraded from doubtful to out for the Week 8 game Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Cowboys | Andy Dalton officially doubtful (Fri Oct 30, 05:35 PM) - Updating a previous report, Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) did not participate in practice Friday, Oct. 30, and is listed as doubtful for Week 8. The Cowboys did not hold a practice Friday, so this is an estimation.

Our View: Ben Dinucci will be the starter on Sunday night, with Garrett Gilbert the backup. The Eagles defense will be chalk in DFS and it should be.

Cowboys | Andy Dalton not slated to practice (Fri Oct 30, 01:08 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) didn't participate in the team's walk-through Friday, Oct. 30, but he hasn't been ruled out for the team's Week 8 game in Philadelphia. However, Dalton would need to reverse course and practice Saturday. 'If Andy would practice (Saturday), that would be the only chance he would have to play in the game,' head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. 'As of right now, he's not scheduled to practice.'

Our View: Expect Ben Dinucci to get the start and keep everyone except Ezekiel Elliott and maybe Amari Cooper on your bench. The Eagles should be considered the top D/ST play of the week.

Cowboys | Andy Dalton remains idle (Thu Oct 29, 12:21 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) participated in the team's quarterback meeting Thursday, Oct. 29, but will be held out of practice, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. In all, it makes Dalton unlikely to play Sunday in Week 8, in the estimation of NFL reporter Ian Rapoport.

Our View: We'll likely see Ben DiNucci as the starter for the Cowboys on Sunday night. Adjust (downward) all projections for Cowboys skill position players and regular starters like RB Ezekiel Elliott and WR Amari Cooper.
