Cowboys backup pass catchers make things happen Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) The Cowboys backup pass catchers played a bigger role than expected Week 1 against the 49ers.

Dwayne Harris only received two targets, but made the most of it. He came down with a 56 -yard catch in the third quarter. The pass was nearly intercepted, but the defender jumped too early. Harris also had one rush for 9 yards. 

Cole Beasley wound up being the most consistent of the bunch. He caught four passes for 42 yards. Beasley received five targets. 

Lance Dunbar and Devin Street also played roles. Dunbar caught three balls for 21 yards. He did not have a rush the entire game. Street caught two passes for 18 yards.

The Cowboys will take on the Titans Week 2. 


Cowboys compare Lance Dunbar to Sproles, Woodhead


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/24/2014) The Cowboys plan to use running back Lance Dunbar in a variety of ways, reports FOX Sports.

"Well, he's a guy that's going to be a complete weapon. We can line him up anywhere on the team -- tailback spot, at the wide receiver spot, in the slot. He has tremendous hands and he's just not a specialty guy. He could play tailback if you need him to go out there and give you 15 or 20 carries. He's that type of kid," Dallas running backs coach Gary Brown said. "He brings a whole different dimension, a whole different vibe in our room as far as what he does and we're looking forward to using him as a weapon as well."

Brown compared Dunbar, who is expected to be No. 2 on the depth chart behind DeMarco Murray, to Danny Woodhead and Darren Sproles.

"Everybody would like to have a guy like Dunbar. You look at the Sproles type guy. You look at guys around the league like Woodhead from San Diego. They all have them," Brown said. "Not everybody has them but we all want them. Once you find one, you've got to find things for him to do and you've got to make sure that he's involved in the gameplan."

Cowboys concerned about hamstring injuries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014) Twelve Cowboys suffered hamstring injuries of varying severity in 2013, reports ESPN.com. The list consisted of Miles Austin, Morris Claiborne, Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Dwayne Harris, Bruce Carter, Danny McCray, Barry Church, Dez Bryant, Lance Dunbar, Gavin Escobar and Terrance Williams.

Coach Jason Garrett is looking at other teams' approaches to find a solution. He might cut back the time players spend on the field early in the offseason, the report said. 

“It is valuable to do the football stuff. We don’t feel like there’s a lot of football stuff right now,” Garrett told the website. “We want to be careful about how much we take away from that. But there’s a couple weeks prior to all that stuff starting. We’ve talked about tweaking the daily schedule and what we’re doing those first couple weeks as we start to lay the foundation for the offseason.”
