Cowboys activated DE Damontre Moore from the reserve/suspended list.

Moore was serving a two-game suspension stemming from a drunk driving arrest. The ex-Giants washout will try to earn a role as a situational pass rusher.

Jerry Jones said Dak Prescott (ankle) will be ready for Week 3.

"He is going to be able to play Monday," Jones said. There never seemed to be much concern about Prescott's status, but it is still good to hear. Prescott will be a low-end QB1 against the Cardinals on Monday night.
Sep 19 - 10:16 AM

Coach Jason Garrett revealed Dak Prescott suffered an ankle injury in Sunday's Week 2 loss to Denver.

Garrett said Prescott was "doing well" after Sunday's game and again this morning, so it doesn't sound like much of an issue at all. The Cowboys continue a brutally difficult stretch to open the season with a Week 3 trip to Arizona.

The NFL's motion to "stay the preliminary injunction" of Ezekiel Elliott‘s six-game suspension has been denied, leaving the injunction in place as the league appeals to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Or something. The Elliott case is getting so bogged down in legalese we're thinking about forcing one of our younger writers to go to law school. The matter appears to now be in the hands of the Fifth Circuit. A ruling is not expected any time soon, meaning Zeke will probably be available for all 16 2017 games.

Cole Beasley caught 4-of-8 targets for 33 yards in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss against the Broncos.

It was a predictably quiet day for Beasley against Denver's pass-erasing defense. He had perhaps the roughest matchup against elite slot man Chris Harris Jr. The Cowboys' passing game has another tough matchup for Week 3 in the Cardinals.
Sep 17 - 11:02 PM

Jason Witten caught 10-of-13 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss against the Broncos.

Witten vacuumed up checkdowns for the Cowboys' ineffective offense. His touchdown came on a beautiful route, head-faking the corner to get wide open. Everybody's favorite dad runner is once again settling in as one of fantasy's more streamable TE2s.
Sep 17 - 10:54 PM

Dak Prescott completed 30-of-50 passes for 238 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

His second interception was a 102-yard pick-six in the final minutes of the fourth quarter. Prescott's first touchdown came following a fumble by Trevor Siemian put the Cowboys in good field position. Without establishing a run game, Prescott struggled to push the ball downfield, averaging a woeful 4.8 yards per attempt. He wasn't under pressure often, but most of his receivers struggled to gain separation five yards beyond the line of scrimmage. The Cowboys have played against two extremely difficult defenses in the Giants and Broncos, so it's still too early to draw any dramatic conclusions about the offense. Prescott will be a borderline QB1 for next week's game against the Cardinals.
Sep 17 - 9:03 PM

Dez Bryant hauled in 7-of-15 targets for 59 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Continuing his theme of struggling against top-tier cornerbacks with Dak Prescott under center, Bryant was inefficient. His touchdown came against the Aqib Talib on a back-shoulder throw, but he struggled otherwise. The good news through two weeks is Bryant's 24 targets. Prescott isn't going away from him. The bad news is, another elite corner in Patrick Peterson is on tap for Week 3. Bryant will be a low-end WR2 for that one.
Sep 17 - 8:55 PM

Ezekiel Elliott rushed nine times for eight yards in the Cowboys' Week 2 loss against the Broncos.

The Cowboys went away from their usual power-run offense, instead oddly deciding to spread it out. A lot of five-wide formations against a difficult pass defense hurt Elliott, and played into Denver's hands. Elliott struggled to get much of anything going as the offense was hardly on the field, unable to consistently convert on third down. It was one of Elliott's worst games as a pro. The Cardinals aren't an attackable Week 3 matchup, but the game script should be back in Dallas' favor. Elliott will bounce-back to top-three status.
Sep 17 - 8:49 PM

Cowboys declared RB Darren McFadden, QB Cooper Rush, CB Bene Benwikere, CB Orlando Scandrick, LB Jay Elliot, LB Anthony Hitchens, OG Jonathan Cooper inactive for Week 2 against the Broncos.

McFadden continues to be a non-factor in the backfield after being inactive Week 1 as well.
Sep 17 - 3:50 PM

Terrance Williams (questionable, ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Broncos.

T-Will returned to a limited practice on Friday and should be ready to roll for Sunday's 4:25 PM ET start in Denver. Facing arguably the league's best secondary on the road, fantasy owners shouldn't be pursuing Williams this week.
Sep 17 - 8:08 AM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is out for Week 2 against the Broncos.

Scandrick couldn't get the green light after suffering a broken left hand in Week 1. Nolan Carroll and Chidobe Awuzie will start on the outside Sunday with Anthony Brown at slot corner.
Sep 15 - 3:23 PM

Terrance Williams (ankle) returned to Cowboys practice on a limited basis Friday and is questionable for Week 2 against the Broncos.

He sat out Wednesday and Thursday's sessions. Williams sprained his ankle early in Dallas' Week 1 win over the Giants. He'll be out there in Denver.
Sep 15 - 3:10 PM

Cowboys WR Terrance Williams (ankle) did not practice Thursday.

It is his second missed session in a row, suggesting he is a long shot to play this week. Brice Butler will pick up the slack if Williams is forced to sit.
Sep 14 - 12:53 PM

Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hand) is not practicing Thursday.

Scandrick underwent surgery to have a plate inserted into his broken left hand on Monday. Despite the operation, Scandrick had designs on playing this week, but it does not look like that will happen. Rookie Chidobe Awuzie will see more snaps if Scandrick is forced to sit.
