Cowboys LT Tyron Smith missed practice Wednesday with back spasms.

Coach Jason Garrett said he is hopeful Smith can practice Thursday. Back spasms are not a long-term concern, but the Cowboys will likely be cautious considering Smith's injury history. Atlanta's pass rush is anything but fearsome, but they did sack Dak Prescott eight times last season with Smith out of the lineup.

Allen Hurns caught two passes for 40 yards in Week 10 against the Eagles.

Hurns was only targeted twice, but he made the most of them. He continued to play behind Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and Cole Beasley. Hurns isn't higher than the No. 5 pass-game option.
Nov 12 - 12:15 AM

Cole Beasley caught 4-of-5 targets for 37 yards in Week 10 against the Eagles.

Beasley continued to see fewer snaps than Michael Gallup, but his five targets were second behind Amari Cooper. This was one of his better games of the year. Beasley won't be a streaming option despite a plus Week 11 matchup with the Falcons.

Michael Gallup caught 2-of-3 passes for 34 yards in Week 10 against the Eagles.

Gallup started in three-wide sets over Allen Hurns. His snaps have been up the last couple weeks as the clear No. 2 opposite Amari Cooper. The Cowboys pass offense can't support more than one wideout, but Gallup's dynasty stock is on the rise.

Amari Cooper caught 6-of-10 targets for 75 yards in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Eagles.

Cooper got off to a fast start with 50 yards in the first half. He had just one catch after that, but it's another encouraging game after Cooper scored in his Cowboys' debut. Cooper was open on multiple downfield plays, but was overthrown by Dak Prescott. His rest-of-season value is up in Dallas, where Cooper is the clear featured wideout. Cooper is a WR2 for a Week 11 matchup with the Falcons.

Ezekiel Elliott rushed 19 times for 151 yards and a touchdown and caught 6-of-7 targets for 36 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Eagles.

It was a monster game for Elliott, who provided most of the Cowboys' offense. Elliott had the highlight of the night on a 32-yard run when he hurdled over Tre Sullivan -- his second-longest run of the season. He later converted a goal-line carry for his rushing touchdown, with his receiving touchdown coming on a third down red-zone pass from Dak Prescott. Elliott looks to have benefitted from the Dallas firing their offensive line coach during their bye. He's a locked-in top-10 running back play against Atlanta in Week 11.

Dak Prescott completed 26-of-36 passes for 270 yards and a touchdown in the Cowboys' Week 10 win over the Eagles.

He added nine yards on six carries, including a one-yard touchdown on a sneak before halftime. Prescott did enough to keep the Cowboys' playoff hopes alive in a must-win game. His only passing touchdown went to Ezekiel Elliott on a short red-zone throw, but Prescott continued to show good rapport with Amari Cooper, who had a team high 10 targets. Prescott has been trending up since the Cooper trade. He's on the streaming radar against the Falcons' bottom of the league secondary in Week 11.

Cowboys RG Zack Martin was forced from Week 10 against the Eagles with a left knee injury.

Martin has been playing through an MCL sprain. He missed most of the first quarter before returning.
Nov 11 - 8:45 PM

Geoff Swaim (knee) is active for Week 10 against the Eagles.

Swaim returns after a one game absence. He'll slot back in as Dallas' No. 1 tight end. The Cowboys inactives are QB Mike White, WR Tavon Austin, LB Joe Thomas. LB Sean Lee, OL Connor Williams, DL David Irving, and DE Taco Charlton.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys plan to keep coach Jason Garrett at least through the end of the season.

Garrett has been out-coached at every turn this years and seems to be running out of rope in Dallas, though according to Rapsheet, the Cowboys have not considered a mid-season coaching change. The Cowboys did fire OL coach Paul Alexander during their bye week and toyed with the idea of moving on from OC Scott Linehan, or at least turning play-calling duties back over to Garrett. If the Cowboys do decide to mercifully pull the plug on Garrett this offseason, Rapoport believes they would strongly pursue Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley, who has also been linked to the head-coaching vacancy in Cleveland.
Nov 11 - 9:02 AM

Cowboys LG Connor Williams (knee) is ruled out for Week 10 against the Eagles.

Either Xavier Su'a-Filo or Adam Redmond will fill-in for Williams, who's been a liability of his own when healthy. What was once considered a strength of the Cowboys' offense will likely get pantsed under the lights by Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, and the rest of the Eagles' feisty pass rush.
Nov 9 - 3:45 PM

Cowboys DE Taco Charlton (shoulder) is out for Week 10 against the Eagles.

As is David Irving (ankle) and Sean Lee (hamstring). DE Randy Gregory (knee) is questionable. Dallas will have no choice but to lean on rotational players for any semblance of a pass rush against an Eagles offense set to debut Golden Tate in the slot.
Nov 9 - 3:40 PM

Geoff Swaim (knee) is questionable for Week 10 against the Eagles.

Swaim got in another limited practice on Friday, suggesting he'll be ready for Sunday night's showdown against the Eagles. The fourth-year tight end carries very little fantasy significance.
Nov 9 - 3:27 PM

The Athletic's Calvin Watkins reports an anonymous agent was told by 10 players the Cowboys "are one of the worst-coached teams they’ve been on."

"Lack of attention to detail and the attention to detail is on the wrong thing," the agent continued. Anonymous agent quotes should be taken with a grain of salt, but the Cowboys' coaching issues have been evident to everyone except Jerry Jones for quite some time. It is possible Jason Garrett is coaching for his job against the Eagles on Sunday night.
Nov 9 - 10:09 AM

Cowboys LB Sean Lee (hamstring) is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

Lee missed three weeks with his hamstiring issue earlier this season. His latest setback has him returning around Week 14. It's been another injury prone year for Lee, who hasn't played more than 11 games since 2016. The Cowboys can save $7 million from moving on from Lee this offseason.
