Joseph Randle exited Sunday's Week 2 win over the Titans with a concussion, and is considered day-to-day.

Randle carried the ball three times for 26 yards before leaving in the third quarter. He doesn't have much of an offensive role with DeMarco Murray playing mostly every down. Randle's role would only grow if Murray gets hurt.
Sep 15 - 6:51 PM

Joseph Randle rushed three times for 26 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

He briefly spelled DeMarco Murray in both the first and second quarters. The totes were Randle's first of the season. Lance Dunbar is the Cowboys' clear-cut No. 2 back, but Randle would be in for a nice role were Murray to go down with injury.
Sep 14 - 6:17 PM

Gavin Escobar secured his lone target for a five-yard catch in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Escobar was supposedly ticketed for a bigger role this season, but has drawn only two targets through two games. He's not on the re-draft radar.
Sep 14 - 6:16 PM

Lance Dunbar rushed 11 times for 27 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Dallas' change-of-pace back wasn't targeted in the passing game. Six of Dunbar's carries came with the Cowboys icing a 26-10 lead. Dunbar drew hype as a potential poor man's Joique Bell in Dallas, but it isn't happening. DeMarco Murray is simply too good.
Sep 14 - 6:14 PM

Cole Beasley secured his lone target for a 10-yard catch in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Dallas' slot receiver now has five catches for 52 yards through two games. He's a WR5/6 in PPR leagues.
Sep 14 - 5:54 PM

Jason Witten caught 4-of-7 targets for 32 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

It was another quiet day for Witten, who was limited to checkdowns as the Cowboys went run- and Dez Bryant-heavy. Witten now has only six grabs for 46 yards through two games. Witten doesn't look physically diminished, so he remains squarely in the TE1 ranks.
Sep 14 - 5:30 PM

Terrance Williams caught 2-of-4 targets for 20 yards in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

With the Cowboys going run heavy, Williams was limited to four looks as Dez Bryant drew 14. It could be a continuing concern for Williams' fantasy owners. He's a touchdown-dependent WR3.
Sep 14 - 5:29 PM

Tony Romo completed 19-of-29 passes for 176 yards and one touchdown in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Romo took a backseat as the Cowboys rode DeMarco Murray and the running game. Thankfully, he made a habit of targeting Dez Bryant, looking his way 14 times, and finding him for 10 catches and a touchdown. Romo still appeared rusty after his limited offseason, often missing low. Either way, it was a major improvement on his Week 1 debacle, and an altogether encouraging afternoon. He has a strong Week 3 matchup in the inept Rams.
Sep 14 - 4:24 PM

Dez Bryant caught 10-of-14 targets for 103 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 2 win over the Titans.

Bryant bounced back from his Week 1 dud in a big way. Bryant was frustrated early, yelling at coaches and teammates on the sideline, but really got cooking once the Titans lost No. 1 CB Jason McCourty. Bryant got away with a minor shove on his three-yard touchdown in the third quarter, but he was physically dominant all afternoon. That's despite missing a first-quarter series with a minor shoulder injury. Bryant has an appetizing Week 3 matchup in the Rams.
Sep 14 - 4:18 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed 29 times for 167 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' 26-10, Week 2 win over the Titans, adding a six-yard reception.

That's 5.75 yards per carry. Murray was ripping off chunk gains from the opening whistle, rebounding from an early fumble to put the Cowboys on his back. Murray simply couldn't be stopped, finding every hole, and dragging tacklers once he got there. Murray now has 285 yards on the ground through his first two contests, averaging 5.58 yards every time he gets the rock. He's again proving that he's one of the league's best pure ball carriers when healthy. Murray is a locked-in RB1, regardless of matchup.
Sep 14 - 4:04 PM

Anthony Hitchens is starting at middle linebacker in Sunday's game at Tennessee.

Justin Durant, who had seven solo tackles last week, is out with a groin injury. The Cowboys will turn to their fourth-round rookie Hitchens, who makes for a boom-or-bust IDP play. Shonn Greene's matchup continues to get better.
Sep 14 - 11:58 AM

Cowboys declared SLB Justin Durant, DT Ken Bishop, OT Donald Hawkins, OT Darrion Weems, DE Anthony Spencer, DE Lavar Edwards and QB Dustin Vaughan inactive for Week 2 against the Titans.

Durant is expected to miss 3-4 weeks with a groin injury. Rookie Anthony Hitchens is taking his place in the middle. Spencer remains week to week.
Sep 14 - 11:42 AM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will not play in Sunday's game at Tennessee.

Scandrick didn't practice all week and wasn't a lock to play even if reinstated. The NFL has yet to finalize its new drug policy. Scandrick has a good chance of returning in Week 3.
Sep 13 - 3:21 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick will be eligible for Week 2 after the NFL's new drug-policy agreement.

Scandrick was suspended four games for PEDs in early August. Although he is technically "eligible" to play, it's not a guarantee that Scandrick will suit up, and we may not know for sure until Sunday morning. The Cowboys certainly need him, however, especially against Titans slot receiver Kendall Wright. Scandrick is the Cowboys' slot corner in sub-packages.
Sep 12 - 9:47 PM

Terrance Williams (back) is listed as probable for Week 2.

Williams practiced in full despite being listed all week with a back injury. He's on the WR3 borderline for Sunday's matchup at Tennessee.
