by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (11:51 am ET) Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain (groin) "probably" will not play in Week 3 against the Rams, team owner Jerry Jones told a local radio station Friday, via the Star-Telegram.
McClain has been unable to practice throughout the week with a groin strain, and his official status will be declared when the team's injury report comes out later in the day.
Rolando McClain's status for Week 3 remains TBD
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (9/18/14) Cowboys linebacker Rolando McClain missed a second straight practice Thursday after suffering a groin strain in the second half Sunday against the Titans. His status for Week 3 against the Rams is still undecided.
"We certainly have confidence in his ability to play, but we believe in practice," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said, per The Dallas Morning News. "He has to practice this week in some way, shape or form for us to believe that he can play in the game, so hopefully as the week goes on, he’s able to do get out there and get some snaps."
Cowboys hold Titans to 10 points during Week 2 win
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com (9/14/14) The Cowboys defense stepped up in a big way during a 26-10 win Week 2 at Tennessee. Dallas held Tennessee to 314 yards (82 rushing) and one offensive touchdown Sunday.
The defense had a strong showing in the first half, as the Cowboys jumped out to a 16-0 lead by halftime. Titans quarterback Jake Locker completed just 4 of 12 passes for 26 yards in the first half.
Dallas finished with two interceptions and sacked Locker two times. The Cowboys are back in action Week 3 at St. Louis.
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com (9/8/14) Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was peppered with questions Monday about Tony Romo's careless performance Sunday. Romo threw three interceptions and cost his team a chance at a touchdown by checking out of a running play near the goal line.
Romo got sacked on the play, forcing Dallas to kick a field goal.
"Tony, like everyone else in this room and on the football field yesterday, is human," Garrett said. "He made some decisions over the course of the game that he'd like to have back. That happens every week in the National Football League to every quarterback. You continue to try and learn and continue to try and grow from the situations you're in."

The Cowboys DST is not a good Fantasy option heading into this season. They were bad in 2013 at No. 19 in Fantasy points, and losing DeMarcus Ware and Jason Hatcher, who were their top two pass rushers, isn't going to help. On top of that, standout linebacker Sean Lee (ACL) is out for the season. There remains some talent on defense for the Cowboys with Brandon Carr and Barry Church, and hopefully rookie defensive end Demarcus Lawrence can help the pass rush, but a lot of work has to be done for Fantasy owners to consider using the Cowboys DST in any leagues this year. We would ignore the unit in all leagues on Draft Day. If they start off the season playing well, then you can add them off waivers as a bye-week replacement.
