Player News - Cowboys

Date: Team: Pos:

The Dallas Morning News' Jon Machota left Alfred Morris off his 53-man roster projection for the Cowboys.

Machota instead has Keith Smith and Rod Smith making the team behind Ezekiel Elliott and Darren McFadden. It is not a shocking prediction considering the Cowboys were reportedly trying to trade Morris in March, and they will likely look to do so again once injuries strike in training camp.

Cowboys OC Scott Linehan continues to endorse Kellen Moore as the team's backup quarterback.

"He’s like a machine," said, Linehan. "He anticipates and sees guys open. He’s extremely accurate." Cole Beasley added that Moore has been "exceptional" at spring practices. That's high praise for an undersized 27-year-old who has played all of 171 snaps in his five-year career. Colin Kaepernick and others are still available, but it looks like the Cowboys are going to stand pat with Moore as their No. 2.

Cowboys RBs coach Gary Brown said Ezekiel Elliott will "absolutely" see more work in the passing game this year.

Zeke easily led the league with 1,631 rushing yards as a rookie, but his 32 receptions ranked 27th among running backs, tied with Matt Asiata. Elliott was hyper-efficient with the work he saw, catching 82.1 percent of his targets and averaging 11.3 yards per catch, so it makes sense to get him more involved as a receiver. If he sees more targets, Elliott has the upside to be the top overall fantasy asset.

Ezekiel Elliott says he's embraced "laying low" after dealing with a slew of off-field incidents during his first year in the league.

Elliott was accused of domestic violence, spotted in a weed shop in Seattle, caught on camera pulling down a woman's top on St. Patrick's Day, and involved in two car accidents in a six-month span this year. "Just kind of want to stay out the way," Elliott said Wednesday. "Whatever you do is going to be seen. That's what I've been doing for the past six weeks."

Cole Beasley has missed spring practices with hamstring tendinitis.

Beasley revealed the injury has bothered him since last Week 10. He played through it, of course, and said he could play in a game today if need be. Still, the long-term nature of the injury is concerning and perhaps explains why the Cowboys drafted slot prospect Ryan Switzer in the fourth round. "(Doctors) say they've had guys with an injury like this before and it's nagged them for a long time and it just went away," said Beasley. "So it's kind of like a waiting game. If it doesn't go away, I can play through it."

Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith (knee) worked in team drills during Wednesday's practice.

Smith was known to be getting in work at OTAs, but this was the first time in his Cowboys career he took the field in front of the media. "Each week, we gradually continue to progress," Smith said. "I feel explosive. I'm moving fast. And it's a great feeling to be a part of the Dallas Cowboys." The Cowboys are taking it easy with Smith, who will not practice on back-to-back days during camp. Still, everything points to him getting back on the field at some point this season.

The Cowboys have moved Chaz Green to left guard.

Green got some early OTA reps at tackle, but the Cowboys have since kicked him inside. The move means Dallas will shift La'El Collins back to right tackle. Injuries have limited Green to four games the last two seasons, but he’s being looked at as a Week 1 starter.

The Cowboys have moved La'El Collins back to right tackle.

He’ll replace Doug Free opposite Tyron Smith. It’s a move that's been expected, but is now confirmed. The Cowboys’ offensive line projects as LT Smith, LG Chaz Green, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin, and RT Collins.

Cowboys LB Mark Nzeocha had his knee scoped on Tuesday.

He'll miss the remainder of OTAs and this month's minicamp. Nzeocha, a 2015 seventh-rounder, should be fine by training camp. He's long been injury plagued, suffering an ACL tear as a college senior and a strained Achilles' in 2016.

Cowboys claimed QB Zac Dysert off waivers from the Cardinals.

Dysert will likely operate as a camp arm behind Dak Prescott and Kellen Moore. Dysert's competition for third-string duties is UDFA rookie Cooper Rush, although the Cowboys may not keep three quarterbacks on their final 53.

Alfred Morris' Cowboys future remains up in the air.

It was reported in March that the Cowboys were trying to trade their No. 3 running back, but predictably, nothing materialized. Morris' roster odds actually improved during the draft, as the Cowboys didn't select a runner. Per PFT's Charean Williams, the Cowboys — like every team — want their No. 3 back to play special teams, something Morris doesn't do. He could still end up getting flipped for a conditional seventh-rounder, but release remains a distinct possibility.

Cardinals waived QB Zac Dysert.

The longtime Josh Norris favorite goes to make room for rookies on Arizona's 90-man roster. Dysert was the Broncos' seventh-round pick in 2013.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports the NFLPA has turned over "phone records and other documents" in the league's investigation of domestic violence allegations made against Ezekiel Elliott in 2016.

Per Pelissero, it's a "potentially significant step in resolving a case that has lingered since last summer." To date, there's been no indication Elliott is at serious risk of a suspension. Elliott, who was not charged, has steadfastly maintained his innocence.

Ezekiel Elliott (car accident) returned to practice this week.

Elliott was held out last week as a "precaution" after his second car accident this year. Cowboys RBs coach Gary Brown insisted Elliott did not suffer a concussion, and his quick return to practice supports the assertion. Despite an eventful offseason, Elliott should be no worse for wear when the reps begin to matter.

Dez Bryant feels 100 percent healthy at OTAs after battling foot, ankle, back, and knee injuries the past two seasons.

Bryant is enjoying a drama-free offseason after missing all of the 2015 spring due to a franchise-tag holdout, then undergoing multiple lower-leg surgeries early in 2016. "There have been times where I [am] seriously injured but I still go," Bryant explained. "The way that I feel now, I'm not dealing with really anything. I feel damn good. I know once I'm 100 percent, I'm hard to deal with." Bryant averaged 80.7 yards and one touchdown per game over the final eight weeks last year.
