Kenneth Boatright
News
Cowboys quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Keith Smith, linebacker James Anderson, tackle Doug Free, tackle Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were ruled inactive for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.
Barry Church
News
Lions wide receiver Golden Tate responded Thursday to comments from Cowboys safety Barry Church, who vowed revenge for a blindside hit Tate had on Cowboys linebacker Sean Lee in 2012 when Tate played for Seattle.

"Man, I don't know this guy," Tate said Thursday, per ESPN. "I just now heard of him yesterday from this incident. He's trying to get on the scene, I guess. We'll see."

Church said Wednesday that Tate's hit "was the dirtiest shot I've ever seen." The hit led to a $21,000 fine for Tate, who hit Lee in the chest and chin with the crown of his helmet.

"We were talking about it on the way back from Washington, me and Sean," Church said. "He was just like, 'Man, I wish I could play so bad in this game just to give a little payback for what he did in Seattle.'

"Obviously he can't play, but we're definitely going to keep our radar out for [Tate] because that was a dirty shot. We're looking forward to seeing him. We'll definitely get him back after that, but it will be within the rules, within the rules."

James Hanna
News
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee, concussion), defensive end Jeremy Mincey (concussion), linebacker Bruce Carter (knee), tight James Hanna (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), guard Zack Martin (ankle), running back DeMarco Murray (hand) and quarterback Tony Romo (back) were cleared to play for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.

Hitchens, McClain and Mincey were listed as questionable, while the remaining players were all considered probable.

Jack Crawford
News
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is probable heading into Thursday's game against the Eagles.

Romo was listed with a back injury, but was able to practice in full on both Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Josh Brent, Tyrone Crawford, Doug Free, Nick Hayden, Rolando McClain and Terrance Williams were also listed as probable, and should play.

The team did not list any players as questionable, though Jeff Heath was listed as doubtful.

Jack Crawford, Tyler Patmon and Dekoda Watson were all ruled out prior to Thursday. 

Injury
Thumb - IR. Out for season
Gavin Escobar
News
A trio of Cowboys receivers pitched in with minor contributions in a Week 10 victory over Jacksonville. Tight end Gavin Escobar caught one pass for 14 yards, wideout Cole Beasley snagged another for 11 yards and running back Lance Dunbar caught two for seven yards.

Also working his way into the score sheet was backup quarterback Brandon Weeden, who completed his only pass for eight yards.

Dallas is now on its bye week.

Bruce Carter
News
Three of the Cowboys' top four linebackers -- Rolando McClain, Bruce Carter and Justin Durant -- are headed for unrestricted free agency, notes the Dallas Morning News. The paper says Cowboys brass is at the Senior Bowl looking for depth at linebacker.

“We have some contract work to do, but we had players really throughout that linebacker core show up positive last year,” owner Jerry Jones told the paper. “I would say that most of our linebackers’ arrows are up as far as they played and we have to sit down and work that through as far as what we’ll do contractually there.

“We’re fortunate to have some of the options that we have, Sean Lee leading the pack, coming back.”

Lee missed the 2014 season while recovering from a torn ACL.

Travis Frederick
News
Cowboys center Travis Frederick is hoping to make things easier for quarterback Tony Romo this season, reports ESPN.

Part of Romo's responsibility is setting the protections with calling out the middle linebacker. The offensive line follows the assignment. If Frederick can take that responsibility away from Romo, then Romo can worry more about the coverage. 

"I'm going to try and do as much as I can to take as much as I can off Tony that he was doing before for the offensive line," Frederick said. 'Not necessarily because I was a rookie or this or that, but because, if I can see it better, that's going to take one thing off his plate and that's going to help the team as a whole."

Tyron Smith
News
Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (back) is active for Thursday night's Week 14 matchup with the Bears.

Romo was fully expected to suit up and play after being listed as probable on the team's final Week 14 injury report Tuesday. The Cowboys' other probables are also active Thursday, including wide receiver Terrance Williams (finger), defensive ends George Selvie (thumb) and Tyrone Crawford (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee) and offensive tackles Tyron Smith (illness) and Doug Free (foot).

Tyler Clutts
News
Cowboys fullback Tyler Clutts had one catch for one yard and a touchdown in Dallas' 26-21 loss to the Packers in the divisional round of the playoffs Sunday.

Quarterback Tony Romo faked the run to DeMarco Murray on the goal line and then found Clutts in the flat open for the score.

For Clutts, who is in his fourth season, it was his first career touchdown. Clutts had 10 catches for 53 yards coming into Sunday's contest. He had one catch for one yard total in 2014 with the Cowboys.

James Anderson
News
Cowboys quarterback Dustin Vaughan, linebacker Keith Smith, linebacker James Anderson, tackle Doug Free, tackle Donald Hawkins, defensive end Kenneth Boatright and defensive tackle Terrell McClain were ruled inactive for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Green Bay.

News
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle) and defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (illness) are active for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Lions after both players were listed as questionable to play.

Hitchens has been dealing with a right high ankle sprain, while Crawford suffered an allergic reaction, putting his status in doubt Sunday.

The team had nine players listed as probable for the first-round playoff matchup, and all are active, including quarterback Tony Romo (back), running back DeMarco Murray (hand), guard Zack Martin (ankle), defensive tackles Josh Brent (calf) and Nick Hayden (shoulder), linebackers Bruce Carter (knee) and Rolando McClain (knee, illness) and safeties Jeff Heath (thumb) and C.J. Spillman (groin).

Dallas is a 6-point favorite at home against Detroit.

Injury
Ankle - Missed Divisional Playoff game at Green Bay
Terrance Williams
News
Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams had one catch for 38 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' 26-21 loss to the Packers Sunday in the divisional round of the playoffs.

On 2nd and 7, quarterback Tony Romo connected with Williams who cut twice before finding the end zone for a touchdown.

It was Williams second consecutive game with at least one touchdown. He finishes the postseason with four receptions, three of which went for scores.

Williams finishes his season with 751 yards and 11 touchdowns in 18 games for Dallas.

Jermey Parnell
News
Cowboys starting right tackle Doug Free and backup Jermey Parnell are both headed to free agency. Free started 11 games and missed five others with foot injuries. Parnell started those five, plus the two playoff games, and Dallas didn't miss a beat.

“That’s another decision we have to make,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Jermey played really well and I think a lot of teams will throw on the tape and watch him play and probably a lot of people will consider him a starter.

“We’ll have to make a tough decision there with Doug and Jermey. Hopefully we’ll at least keep one of them.”

C.J. Spillman
News
Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle) and defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (illness) are active for Sunday's Wild Card game against the Lions after both players were listed as questionable to play.

Hitchens has been dealing with a right high ankle sprain, while Crawford suffered an allergic reaction, putting his status in doubt Sunday.

The team had nine players listed as probable for the first-round playoff matchup, and all are active, including quarterback Tony Romo (back), running back DeMarco Murray (hand), guard Zack Martin (ankle), defensive tackles Josh Brent (calf) and Nick Hayden (shoulder), linebackers Bruce Carter (knee) and Rolando McClain (knee, illness) and safeties Jeff Heath (thumb) and C.J. Spillman (groin).

Dallas is a 6-point favorite at home against Detroit.

Henry Melton
News
The Cowboys are reportedly expected to decline the three-year option on defensive tackle Henry Melton, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The move will make Melton a free agent for the second consecutive offseason and would have made $9 million if the Cowboys had picked it up.

Melton played a full season in Dallas after missing 13 games in 2013 with a torn ACL. He totaled 11 tackles for the Cowboys including five sacks and four passes defended.

Injury
Knee - IR. Out for season.
Cameron Lawrence
News
The Cowboys re-signed two of their defensive players on Friday. 

The team re-signed linebacker Cameron Lawrence , who was an exclusive-rights free agent. Lawrence joined the Cowboys practice squad after going undrafted in 2013. He was promoted to the active roster one month into the season and played on special teams. In two seasons with the team, Lawrence has 25 tackles and one sack. 

Defensive tackle Davon Coleman was also signed. Coleman joined the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2014. He had three tackles for the team in two games last season. 

Kyle Wilber
News
Cowboys linebacker Kyle Wilber started four of the final five games on the strong side last year, making him the favorite to start at the position in 2014, reports the Dallas Morning News. Wilber, 25, appeared in every game and finished with 42 tackles, two sacks and 14 quarterback pressures.

He'll be challenged by DeVonte Holloman.

Lance Dunbar
News
With the Cowboys up big and DeMarco Murray somewhat limited following a hand injury, the Cowboys turned to their backups for an increased role in Week 16 against the Colts, and it was Joseph Randle who had the most to gain.

Lance Dunbar mostly remained in his usual role, finishing the game with two receptions and two rushes for 14 all-purpose yards, while Randle saw his role increase in a big way. Randle rushed the ball a season-high 13 times, and though he managed just 37 yards, you had to come away from the game pleased to know exactly where he falls in the hierarchy.

It wouldn't be a surprise to see Murray limited even more in Week 17, with a playoff spot locked up. Randle was expected to see the larger share than Dunbar, but it was still good to see confirmation of that. Keep an eye on how the Cowboys plan to use Murray this week, because Randle could be a solid starting Fantasy option in Week 17 against Washington.

Anthony Spencer
News
The Cowboys have unveiled its final injury report for Sunday's clash in London against Jacksonville. Tyrone Crawford (knee) was the only player on the list ruled out for the game. Nick Hayden (shoulder) and Rolando McClain (knee, groin) were deemed questionable.

The following players also received the green light and were labeled probable: Bruce Carter (finger), Barry Church (shoulder), Jack Crawford (calf), Doug Free (foot), Jack Hanna (hamstring), Anthony Hitchens (chest), Ronald Leary (groin), Jermey Parnell (chest) and Anthony Spencer (knee, foot).

Dan Bailey
News
Cowboys kicker Dan Bailey had his only field goal attempt blocked in Dallas' 26-21 loss to the Packers Sunday in the divsional round of the playoffs.

Mackenzy Bernadeau
News
Cowboys guard Mackenzy Bernadeau's restructured contract includes a $1.15 million pay cut for 2014, reports USA Today. He started 11 games last season and figures to start at right guard this fall.
Dez Bryant
News
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones knows star wide receiver Dez Bryant won't be happy about getting the franchise tag if the two sides can't come to an agreement, but he noted Bryant will play just fine if that happens.

"I’ve never seen anybody just pout to the extent that they wouldn’t do it over this kind of money," Jones told ESPN. "That usually is not realistic. It's just too much money."

The two sides are working on a long-term deal, but if the deal doesn't come to fruition, the franchise tag is likely to be worth $13 million next season for Bryant.

Dwayne Harris
News
Several Cowboys made minor contributions Week 9 against Arizona. Among them, running back Joseph Randle had a 2-yard carry. Wideouts Dwayne Harris and Cole Beasley each had a 12-yard reception.

They'll all face the Jaguars in London in Week 10.

Joseph Randle
News
Cowboys running back Joseph Randle has had his suspicion of marijuana possession charge dropped, according to the Associated Press

Police spokesman Lt. James Espinoza told the AP that there were "inconsistencies" with the drug charge and therefore they would not bring it.

However, the report also states that by dropping the marijuana charge, police can charge Randle with other offenses at the same time from a domestic violence allegation that occurred from the same incident.

Earlier Friday, the Dallas Morning News reported Randle's ex-girlfriend, Dalia Jacobs, filed a petition for a protective order against the Cowboys running back. Jacobs claimed Randle pointed a gun at her friend and punched the windshield of a vehicle.

Cole Beasley
News
Cowboys wide receiver Terrance Williams led the team with 92 yards on three receptions and caught two touchdowns in his team's 24-20 win over the Lions in Sunday's Wild Card game.

Williams turned a medium gain into a 76-yard touchdown late in the second quarter thanks in part to poor tackling and poor angles taken by the defense. His second score was grabbed in the back of the end zone on third-and-goal from the eight-yard line, giving the Cowboys their first lead of the game with less than three minutes remaining in the final quarter.

Williams was targeted six times in a game where the Lions did their best to take away No. 1 receiver Dez Bryant, who managed just three catches on three targets for 48 yards. Both tight end Jason Witten and wide receiver Cole Beasley gained 63 receiving yards, with the tight end racking up a team-high five catches on seven targets and the slot receiver catching four passes on a team-high eight targets.

Justin Durant
News
Three of the Cowboys' top four linebackers -- Rolando McClain, Bruce Carter and Justin Durant -- are headed for unrestricted free agency, notes the Dallas Morning News. The paper says Cowboys brass is at the Senior Bowl looking for depth at linebacker.

“We have some contract work to do, but we had players really throughout that linebacker core show up positive last year,” owner Jerry Jones told the paper. “I would say that most of our linebackers’ arrows are up as far as they played and we have to sit down and work that through as far as what we’ll do contractually there.

“We’re fortunate to have some of the options that we have, Sean Lee leading the pack, coming back.”

Lee missed the 2014 season while recovering from a torn ACL.

Cowboys tight end Jason Witten will replace Broncos tight end Julius Thomas in the 2015 Pro Bowl. Thomas will not participate due to an undisclosed injury.

Morris Claiborne
News
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is sounding less and less optimistic cornerback Morris Claiborne will be back for training camp in 2015.

"Mo has created a problematic situation for us," Jones said to the Dallas Morning News. "Mo didn’t create it, but his circumstances are problematic for us as we approach what we’re doing in the off-season at that position."

Claiborne suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee last September and the team is "hopeful" he will be ready for training camp.

Claiborne has played just 29 games of a possible 48 in his three-year career, totaling 88 tackles with three interceptions.

News
The Cowboys were happy with backup QB Brandon Weeden, but that won't stop the team from looking to upgrade if the opportunity presents itself. 

Coach Jason Garrett and executive VP Stephen Jones spoke about Weeden on Thursday. 

"Brandon did a really nice job in his opportunities," Garrett said. "We still feel like he's a young player who needs to play more. He's really growing before our eyes." 

Despite that, Garrett said, "You're always trying to upgrade your football team."

Jones agreed with the sentiment. "Everybody is always competing in this league," he said. “There is nobody guaranteed anything. That includes Weeden and everybody. ... My goal is to always -- if we can - bring in another player and if makes more sense, we have to look at it."

Devin Street
News
Cowboys rookie wideout Devin Street has run 49 pass routes on 70 snaps this season, but has been targeted just four times, reports the Dallas Morning News. Street has two catches for 16 yards. The paper said receiver Cole Beasley and running back Lance Dunbar have proven to be reliable third-down options, minimizing Street's opportunities.
Tony Romo
News
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Wednesday that the team could forego negotiating a restructure of the contract of quarterback Tony Romo, ESPN.com reports.

Romo is set to count an NFL-high $27.773 million against the cap in 2015.

"Theoretically we could [leave it that high]," Jones said. "Or some form of that."

Once the league finalizes the cap number for the upcoming season, the Cowboys can decide whether Romo's contract needs to be restructured, which carries the possibility of gaining as much as $12.8 million in cap room but would raise the quarterback's cap figure in upcoming seasons.

"I don't know that it's break glass in case of emergency," Jones said. "It's just how we want to structure things and who do we want to push [money] out on, if anybody, and do we want to push out. Those will be decisions we have to come to grips with."

If the Cowboys don't touch Romo's deal, his cap number will drop to $17.635 million in 2016.


Dekoda Watson
News
The Cowboys have listed defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (illness) and linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle) as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lions.

Crawford played in 15 games for Dallas this season, totaling 33 tackles and three sacks while Hitchens had 75 total tackles and one interception.

The Cowboys have also listed the following players as probable for Sunday: quarterback Tony Romo (back), running back DeMarco Murray (hand), defensive tackle Josh Brent (calf), linebacker Bruce Carter (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), guard Zack Martin (ankle), linebacker Rolando McClain (knee/illness), safety C.J. Spillman (groin) and linebacker Dekoda Watson (hamstring).

The Cowboys are currently 6 1/2-point favorites at home against Detroit.

Brandon Carr
News
Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr is a candidate for release this offseason with a contract that's scheduled to take up $12.7 million of cap space, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"Carr played well this year and I’m not as critical of Carr as others," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "But that’s a lot of money. One thing that we just got to do is we’ve got to make sure that every way we can, we get the value for the money."

Carr has restructed his contract in the past, but it's unlikely the team will welcome another restructure this offseason. While Carr would cost nearly as much in dead cap space if released as he would to be retained, the Cowboys can reduce his 2015 cap impact to $4.717 million if he's designated as a post-June 1 release, saving exactly $8 million from the cornerback's 2015 salary if retained.

DeMarco Murray
News
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sure sounds like he wants to get DeMarco Murray back in Dallas in 2015. Jones said Saturday he wants Murray to be a Cowboy for his entire career. The only thing preventing that is figuring out how much to pay the 27-year-old.

"In a legitimate negotiation you usually have both of them thinking ranges," Jones said to the Dallas Morning News. "You have both of them in brackets. You have both of them thinking brackets and within the parameters how you get a deal done. And you can usually tell if one or the other is outside the parameters significantly and then there really is - usually both parties to a negotiation know because they've bracketed and realize they're not in sync with the bracket, then they know for whatever the reasons something else has got to play in."

Murray ran for  league-high 1,845 yards on 392 carries and 13 touchdowns, adding 57 receptions for 416 yards in the passing game.

"Murray is such a warrior and Murray is such a horse, he'd actually get upset if you took him out of the game," Jones said. "But it was [not] the thing to do for Murray to let those guys have more touches. … I don't think we would go into a season now with Murray thinking that he was going to have the load that he had last year. I don't believe we would."

Ryan Miller
News
The Cowboys have signed offensive linemen R.J. Dill and Ryan Miller to reserve/future contracts, the team announced Thursday.

Miller didn't play in a regular-season game in 2014 but has appeared in eight games with the Browns. Dill was unable to make the Rams' final roster during the 2014 preseason.

L.P. LaDouceur
News
The Dallas Morning News reports Cowboys tendered contracts to six exclusive rights free agents, including Patrick Crayton. Terrance Copper, Willie Pile, and Jacques Reeves have been tendered contracts worth $385,000. Lousaka Polite and L.P. Ladouceur were tendered at $310,000.

Dustin Vaughan
News
Although the Cowboys are reportedly pleased with Brandon Weeden, coach Jason Garrett told reporters he's still leaving the door open to adding a veteran this offseason, per ESPN.

Weeden, 31, is entering the final year of his contract. Last season, he passed for 303 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions while filling in for Romo when he was sidelined with two transverse process fractures. Dustin Vaughan, an undrafted free agent in 2014, was also active for one game last season.

"You're always trying to upgrade your football team," Garrett said. "Obviously, we feel really good about Tony. He had an outstanding year for us last year. Brandon did a really nice job in his opportunities. If you look at what he did -- he played in (four) games, (three) he came in relief for us and the one game he started we didn't play our best game on offense. But it was against a really good defensive team in Arizona. We still feel like he's a young player who needs to play more. He's really growing before our eyes.

"We like what Dustin Vaughn did in the preseason. He is a smart kid. He is really conscientious. He wants to be a good football player and works very hard at it. He's one of those guys, too, a young player and you can see him get better with every rep that he gets. He is going about it the right way. We think he's got a future."
