Cowboys signed CB Micah Pellerin of their practice squad.

DT Davon Coleman was waived in a corresponding move. The Cowboys were down to three cornerbacks with Tyler Patmon sidelined with a sprained knee.
Nov 22 - 11:59 AM

Cowboys DT Josh Brent is expected to be active this week.

Brent hasn't played in a game since 2012, but resumed practicing last week. He should return when first eligible Sunday night against the Giants. Brent will provide rotational depth behind Henry Melton and Nick Hayden.
Nov 21 - 5:23 PM

The Giants don't plan to use Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in shadow coverage on Dez Bryant.

DRC has been unable to play every defensive snap in recent weeks because of an IT band injury that is affecting his back, leg, and hamstring. Giants DC Perry Fewell mentions CB Chykie Brown, who was plucked off waivers from the Ravens, as a candidate to see extended snaps vs. Bryant on Sunday night. Dez has a touchdown and/or 100-plus yards in eight of his last nine games.
Nov 21 - 8:48 AM

Tony Romo (back) returned to practice Thursday.

He was "full." Romo sits out Wednesday practices weekly to rest his balky back. He'll be ready to rock as a back-end QB1 against the Giants Sunday night.
Nov 20 - 12:25 PM

Tony Romo (back) will not practice Wednesday.

Back to his normal Wednesdays-off routine. Romo will be fine for Week 12 against the Giants with the Cowboys coming out of their bye. He's a QB1/2.
Nov 19 - 11:51 AM

DeMarco Murray said he feels recharged as the Cowboys come out of their bye.

Murray has been able to sustain health despite averaging 28.0 touches per game through the first 10 weeks. The bye week certainly came at a good time for his body to heal up a bit and the Week 12 matchup is ideal. Murray and the Cowboys' dominant offensive line gets to face a Giants run defense that has been absolutely gashed by the run since MLB Jon Beason went down. Murray is the No. 1 RB play in fantasy this week.

The Cowboys will not activate DT Amobi Okoye (illness) from the reserve/NFI list.

It means Okoye will officially miss the entire season. Okoye last played in 2012. His career was derailed by anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, an extremely rare, but potentially fatal, illness. Okoye has been in the league since 2007, but is still only 27. He could return for next season. He's under contract with the Cowboys.
Nov 13 - 3:33 PM

Cowboys signed LB Dekoda Watson.

Watson started for the Jags against the Cowboys in London last week and then got cut. He'll be a reserve and special teamer in Dallas.
Nov 13 - 9:49 AM

Cowboys SS J.J. Wilcox suffered a neck "burner" in Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Wilcox underwent tests earlier this week, but "should be okay." He's started all 10 games this season, making 43 tackles and one interception. He hasn't made many plays, but is better than what the Cowboys got at safety last season.
Nov 12 - 9:42 AM

Speaking Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he hopes to have walk-year WR Dez Bryant finish his career in Dallas.

Jones confirmed the sides have had "serious" contract talks. Jones' son, Stephen, says the Cowboys have made some "really nice" offers, and are confident the sides will come to an accord. For his part, Bryant has said he'd be "highly disappointed" to be franchise tagged. DeMarcus Ware notwithstanding, Jerry rarely lets homegrown talent get away. Bryant should remain with Big D for 2015 and beyond.
Nov 11 - 10:16 PM

Cowboys activated DT Josh Brent from the reserve/suspended list.

LB Tim Dobbins was waived in a corresponding roster move. Brent hasn't appeared in a game since the 2012 drunk-driving incident that killed former teammate Jerry Brown. Brent served 180 days in jail after being convicted of intoxication manslaughter. He'll be an extra body for the Cowboys' undermanned front seven, but it's possible Brent won't be active when Dallas returns from its Week 11 bye. Brent isn't yet in shape.
Nov 11 - 4:31 PM

Jaguars waived LB Dekoda Watson.

CB Teddy Williams was claimed off waivers from the Bears in a corresponding roster move. A veteran reserve, Watson's release is a bit surprising since he played 35-of-62 snaps against the Cowboys, having his best game of the season, according to Pro Football Focus. He signed a three-year deal in March, taking home $1.5 million guaranteed. Watson will look for deep reserve/special teams work elsewhere. Williams is a former receiver the Cardinals converted to corner.
Nov 11 - 4:19 PM

Tony Romo (back) confirmed he emerged from Sunday's win over the Jaguars without setbacks.

Romo stayed in during garbage time of this blowout, confirming his back is feeling fine. "Just sore," Romo said afterward. "Anybody that's had any broken bones, it's uncomfortable at times and things like that. But if you play football, you go play." He should be close to 100 percent when the Cowboys come out of their bye against the Giants in Week 12.

Nov 9 - 6:36 PM

Jason Witten caught 5-of-7 targets for 33 yards and a touchdown Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Witten could have had a much bigger day. Tony Romo just missed a wide-open Witten for a walk-in touchdown in the first quarter, and Witten dropped what would have been a huge catch-and-run in the third. Witten now has 22 targets through the last three games, and is becoming a bigger part of the Cowboys' offense. He is back on the low-end TE1 map.
Nov 9 - 5:22 PM

Terrance Williams held without a catch on two targets Week 10 against the Jaguars.

Williams got deep for what would have been a touchdown in the third quarter, but Romo underthrew him. After scoring six touchdowns through the first seven games, Williams has been held out of the end zone in each of the last three. He will be a WR3 against the Giants Week 12.
