Cowboys signed Luke McCown, formerly of the Saints.

Drew Brees' former backup was cut in April when the Saints reunited with Chase Daniel. 36-year-old McCown will compete with Kellen Moore in Dallas.

NFL suspended Cowboys DE Damontre Moore two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The suspension stems from a December DWI arrest. With Moore, David Irving and Randy Gregory all facing suspensions and the league still deciding the fates of Nolan Carroll and Ezekiel Elliott, the Cowboys are going to be short-handed early in the year. Moore will be eligible to return against the Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Week 3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL will not issue an update on discipline for Ezekiel Elliott before next Monday.

The NFL remains undecided on how long to suspend Elliott as it continues its investigations into his two assault accusations, the first of domestic variety and the second involving a nightclub brawl where Zeke was alleged to have broken a man's nose. It's disappointing we will continue to lack clarity on Elliott's availability, especially after owner Jerry Jones stated a decision from the NFL was "imminent" on Thursday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects a decision "imminently" in the league's Ezekiel Elliott investigation.

"Of course, I don’t know what that will be and wouldn’t want to have conjecture in any way involving that," Jones added. "There’s no domestic violence involved here." Rumors about a potentially lengthy suspension have been running rampant, but the reality is, most of the parties involved seem in the dark. Fantasy owners can only sit tight and wait.

When asked about his knee after his first padded practice in over a year, Cowboys LB Jaylon Smith said it "feels 100 percent."

Veteran Sean Lee also added that Smith "looked great." A lock to be a top-5 pick in the 2016 NFL draft before a bowl-game knee injury and subsequent nerve damage, Smith was drafted in the early 2nd round by the Cowboys as a project player. According to Peter King of the MMQB, Smith's nerve is now 80 percent regenerated, and Jerry Jones said he would use a first-round pick on the linebacker if the draft was today. He will likely remain limited throughout camp, but Smith is on pace to contribute this season.

Cowboys signed RB Ronnie Hillman.

A middling back who spent time with two teams last year, Hillman signing with a team is not a big story in and of itself, but it is interesting the Cowboys are adding to a reasonably deep backfield. The move could hint at some concern about Ezekiel Elliott's availability for the first couple games. Dallas could also once again look to move Alfred Morris after failing during the draft.

Cowboys QB Zac Dysert needs surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back and is out for the season.

Losing camp arm Dysert leaves only Kellen Moore and UDFA Cooper Rush behind Dak Prescott. Dysert is Josh Norris' favorite player in the whole league.
Jul 26 - 11:04 PM

Cowboys DE Benson Mayowa is limited with knee soreness to begin training camp.

Mayowa was limited with the same issue in the spring. Mayowa underwent a knee scope last offseason, but went on to appear in all 16 games, leading the Cowboys with six sacks. For now, the worry level seems low.
Jul 25 - 7:25 PM

Cowboys third-round CB Jourdan Lewis has been found not guilty in his domestic violence case.

Lewis had insisted he was "completely innocent." The Cowboys knew of the incident when they made Lewis the No. 92 overall pick of the draft. Standing in at 5-foot-10, 195 pounds, Lewis is a slot prospect.
Jul 25 - 6:36 PM

Cowboys signed RT La'El Collins to a two-year, $15.4 million extension through 2019.

Collins was headed for restricted free agency next season. The new deal is a win-win. For Collins, it gets him up to the first-round money he should have gotten in 2015. For Dallas, it buys out a year of free agency. Collins can still hit the market when he's 27. Replacing Doug Free at right tackle, Collins was limited to three games by injury last season, but showed promise as a rookie in 2015.
Jul 25 - 3:37 PM

Cole Beasley (hamstring) has been cleared for Cowboys training camp.

Beasley played through hamstring tendinitis in the second half of last season and missed all spring workouts, but the Cowboys never expressed significant concern with his health. He's now all systems go. Entering his age-28 season, Beasley was quick to establish a chain-moving rapport with Dak Prescott in 2016, drawing career highs in targets (98) and receptions (75).
Jul 24 - 4:14 PM

Jonathan Cooper and Chaz Green both received first-team reps at left guard on the first day of Cowboys camp on Monday.

A 2015 third-rounder, Green was just converted to guard in June. Cooper is probably the slight favorite to replace Ronald Leary, but Green figures to get a legitimate chance. It's a trouble spot for the Cowboys' dominant line.
Jul 24 - 2:34 PM

Cowboys DE Demarcus Lawrence (back) will be limited early in training camp.

As will DE Charles Tapper, OG Joe Looney, DE Benson Mayowa, TE Geoff Swaim, and TE James Hanna. Lawrence underwent offseason back surgery for the second year in a row. Limited by that injury and a four-game suspension, the pass rusher was limited to one sack last season after recording eight the year before. Lawrence returning to his 2015 form would be a big boost for the defense.
Jul 23 - 3:03 PM

Jerry Jones said he has seen "absolutely nothing" to substantiate domestic violence allegations against Ezekiel Elliott.

Earlier in the same press conference, Jerry also said the Cowboys have no tolerance for off-field issues, so this maybe should be taken with a grain of salt. For his part, Jason Garrett said he had a productive conversation with Elliott about his behavior away from the team. Whether the allegations are true or not, it seems like Zeke is headed for at least a short suspension.
Jul 23 - 2:51 PM

Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones said the team is "confident" they will "get something worked out" with RG Zack Martin.

Martin still has two years left on his deal after Dallas exercised his fifth-year option in April, but they would like to get something done during training camp. With two All-Pro nods in just three seasons, Martin's next deal should place him right at the top of the guard pay scale. Kevin Zeitler is currently the highest-paid guard after landing $12 million per year from the Browns in March.
