Cowboys SLB Bruce Carter (quad) is not expected to play in Sunday's game against the Texans.

Carter is considered "week to week." His loss is a downgrade to the Cowboys pass defense. Kyle Wilber will likely replace Carter in base sets

Cowboys SLB Bruce Carter (quad) "could miss some time."

Carter is considered "very questionable" for Sunday's game against the Texans. Carter has played well in coverage this season, but gotten smoked by the run. Either way, an extended absence would be bad news for the league's thinnest front seven.
Sep 29 - 3:03 PM

Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne has been diagnosed with a torn left patellar tendon, and is done for the season.

He'll be placed on injured reserve. The Cowboys initially feared a torn ACL, but a patellar-tendon injury is just as bad. It's quite possible the ailment will end Claiborne's star-crossed tenure with the Cowboys. He's due a fully-guaranteed $2.607 million in the final year of his rookie contract, but has been injury prone and ineffective since first stepping on an NFL field. Dallas' top three corners are Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick and Sterling Moore.

The Dallas Morning News reports the Cowboys "fear" CB Morris Claiborne suffered a torn ACL in Sunday night's win over the Saints.

Claiborne will undergo an MRI on Monday, at which point more will be known. He'll likely to be placed on injured reserve and miss the remainder of the season. Claiborne is due $2.6 million in 2015 and will be a candidate for offseason release. The Cowboys will move forward with Brandon Carr, Orlando Scandrick, and Sterling Moore as their top three corners.

Cole Beasley had two catches for 14 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

They were his only targets of the game. Beasley is now up to eight catches for 75 yards through four games.
Sep 29 - 1:30 AM

Joseph Randle rushed four times for 22 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Randle spelled DeMarco Murray and got some work in mop-up duty. He would likely lead the Cowboys in carries if Murray got injured, with Lance Dunbar playing in a change-of-pace role. Randle's only value is as a fantasy handcuff.
Sep 29 - 1:28 AM

Lance Dunbar had two catches for 36 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Dunbar was held without a carry for the second straight week. His 24-yard catch set up DeMarco Murray's first touchdown. He finished with only three targets in the pass game. The Cowboys take on the Texans in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 1:24 AM

Jason Witten caught five passes for 61 yards in Week 4 against the Saints.

Both were season-highs for Witten, who is on pace for just 60 catches and 624 yards. Witten has still yet to score a touchdown through four weeks. He'll be a low-end TE 1 against the Texans.
Sep 29 - 1:17 AM

Terrance Williams secured six-of-seven targets for 77 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Saints.

Williams took advantage of single coverage opposite Dez Bryant. He was matched up with Saints CB Corey White for most of the game, but scored his second touchdown on rookie Brian Dixon. Through four games, Williams is on pace for 56 catches, 716 yards, and an unsustainable 16 touchdowns. The Cowboys play the Texans in Week 5.
Sep 29 - 12:40 AM

Dez Bryant had three catches for 44 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Saints.

Bryant was doubled covered for most of the night, but beat Saints CB Keenan Lewis for an 18-yard touchdown on a back-shoulder fade in the fourth quarter. He was targeted six times by Tony Romo. Bryant has touchdowns in three straight games and is on pace for 92 catches and 1,176 yards this season.
Sep 29 - 12:22 AM

DeMarco Murray had 24 carries for 149 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 4 win over the Saints.

It's Murray's fourth straight game with at least 100 yards and a touchdown. The Cowboys offensive line continues to open up massive running lanes for Murray, and he's averaging a dominant 5.4 YPC. Murray is on pace for 2,408 total yards and 20 touchdowns this season. With Dallas moving to a run-first offense, Murray has No. 1 overall running back potential.
Sep 29 - 12:01 AM

Tony Romo completed 22-of-29 passes for 262 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday night's 38-17 win over the Saints.

He added three scrambles for 23 yards. It was Romo's best game to date. He connected with Terrance Williams for two first-half touchdowns and later hit Dez Bryant on a back-shoulder fade in the fourth quarter. Romo still struggled on his deep accuracy, and wasn't able to get anything going downfield with Bryant. Through four games, Romo is on pace for 3,636 yards with a 28:16 TD:INT ratio. He'll be a low-end QB1 in Week 5 against Texans.
Sep 28 - 11:41 PM

Cowboys SLB Bruce Carter left Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints with a right quad strain.

He's done for the night. Carter had six tackles and two pass deflections before exiting. Kyle Wilber will replace him in base sets.
Sep 28 - 10:54 PM

Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne exited Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints with a left knee sprain.

Claiborne wasn't able to put any weight on his left leg and had to be helped off the field. His return is questionable. The Cowboys are now down to just three corners. Sterling Moore will replace Claiborne in nickel packages.
Sep 28 - 8:55 PM

Cowboys MLB Rolando McClain (groin) is active for Sunday night's Week 4 game against the Saints.

McClain was able to practice on a limited basis Friday and will return after missing last week's game. It's an upgrade for the Cowboys' run defense. Inactive for Dallas are QB Dustin Vaughan, DB Tyler Patmon, LB Korey Toomer, DT Davon Coleman, DE Lavar Edwards, DT Terrell McClain, and OT Donald Hawkins.
