Jerry Jones said SS Xavier Woods (hamstring) could return this week.

Dallas' defense has played well the first two weeks even with Woods sidelined by a hamstring injury, but getting him back would be a boost. Jones also expects DE Randy Gregory (concussion) to return this week.

Jerry Jones expects DE Randy Gregory (concussion) to play Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Gregory sat out Sunday night's game because of the head injury, but he has already been cleared to practice. Barring any setbacks -- or long-rumored suspensions -- he should be ready to play in Seattle.

Terrance Williams caught one pass for 12 yards in Week 2 against the Giants.

Williams caught his only target of the night. He was a non-factor in a game Dak Prescott threw for just 160 yards. The Cowboys have been one of the worst pass offenses in the league through two weeks.

Allen Hurns caught 1-of-2 passes for nine yards in Week 2 against the Giants

It's another bad game from Hurns after getting held to one catch in the opener. The Cowboys talked up Hurns as a No. 1 option this preseason, but he's been invisible through their first two games. With the Cowboys offense spreading it around, Hurns is droppable in shallow leagues.

Tavon Austin caught two passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Giants.

Austin burned the Giants for a 64-yard TD on the third play of the night. He had one catch after that, but added 15 yards on a reverse. Austin's touchdown was his first since 2016. Despite the big game, Austin should remain limited to a gadget role moving forward.
Sep 16 - 11:57 PM

Michael Gallup caught 1-of-2 targets for five yards in Week 2 against the Giants.

It's another disappointing target share for Gallup after one catch in the season opener. The Cowboys have played Gallup behind journeyman Deonte Thompson despite his strong preseason, and re-signed Brice Butler this week, further muddling their receivers. Gallup remains a strong hold in dynasty, but it may take an injury for Dallas to realize his potential.
Sep 16 - 11:41 PM

Ezekiel Elliott rushed 17 times for 78 yards and a touchdown and caught 5-of-6 passes for nine yards in the Cowboys' Week 2 win over the Giants on Sunday night.

Elliott had a quiet night before scoring a six-yard fourth quarter touchdown. He was the Cowboys entire offense aside from a 64-yard Tavon Austin touchdown on the third play of the night. Despite playing behind an offensive line missing Travis Frederick, Elliott has managed 80 total yards and a touchdown in both games to start the year. He'll remain a locked-in top-five option for Week 3 against Seattle.
Sep 16 - 11:30 PM

Dak Prescott completed 16-of-25 passes for 160 yards and a touchdown in Week 2 against the Giants.

Prescott wasn't asked to do much with the Cowboys defense shutting down the Giants. His touchdown was a 64-yard catch and run by Tavon Austin on the third play of the night. Prescott managed the game after that, but he added 45 yards on seven rushes. Through two weeks, Prescott has looked like the quarterback he was in the second half of last year. He gets a matchup with Seattle in Week 3.
Sep 16 - 11:17 PM

Cowboys TE Rico Gathers is active for Week 2 against the Giants.

Gathers will make his regular season debut after being a healthy scratch last week. The Cowboys will be without DE Randy Gregory (concussion), but are mostly healthy on defense. Also inactive are QB Mike White, S Xavier Woods, DE Datone Jones, C Travis Frederick, OG Xavier Su’a-Filo, and TE Dalton Schultz.
Sep 16 - 7:14 PM

Cowboys signed WR Brice Butler.

Butler, 28, spent the previous three seasons with Dallas before signing with the Cardinals in April only to not make a talentless Arizona team out of camp. Butler, however, has talent and was criminally underused in Dallas the first go-around. We doubt that changes anytime soon this time.
Sep 16 - 5:43 PM

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory (concussion) is doubtful for Week 2 against the Giants.

Gregory has been medically cleared to practice but his availability for Sunday night remains highly doubtful. DE Taco Charlton played 49 snaps with Gregory in and out of the lineup in Week 1 and would receive similar work if Gregory is declared inactive.
Sep 14 - 3:54 PM

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (groin) was removed from the injury report and will play in Week 2 against the Giants.

DE Randy Gregory (concussion) is doubtful. Xavier Woods (hamstring) and Datone Jones have also been ruled out for the second consecutive week. Lawrence only recorded one sack against the Panthers in Week 1 but made his presence felt across the board in all other aspects on defense. He'll suit up Sunday night against the Giants.
Sep 14 - 3:47 PM

Cowboys DE Randy Gregory (concussion) returned to practice Friday.

"He’s been cleared to practice today, so we’re certainly hopeful as we move forward," coach Jason Garrett said. Although Gregory has been medically cleared to practice, his availability for Sunday night remains a true question mark. DE Taco Charlton played 49 snaps with Gregory in and out in Week 1.
Sep 14 - 1:18 PM

Updating an earlier report, Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (groin) returned to a full practice on Thursday.

That puts him on track to play Sunday night against the Giants. Lawrence was the Cowboys' top pass-rusher a year ago, leading the team with a career-high 14.5 sacks over 701 defensive snaps. He recorded one sack in last week's opener at Carolina.
Sep 13 - 3:35 PM

Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence (groin) returned to practice Thursday.

Lawrence was seen going through individual drills during the portion of practice open to the media. He will likely be listed as limited on the official report, but this practice puts him on track for Sunday.
