Dez Bryant To Undergo MRI On Right Knee

Sep 26, 2016 8:45 AM

Dez Bryant had X-Rays on his right knee on Sunday night and will undergo an MRI on Monday.

On the second play from scrimmage, Bryant's knee got caught under a defender. He returned to the game and played 52 of 68 snaps as the Dallas Cowboys defeated the Chicago Bears 31-17.

"We feel OK," Jerry Jones said "We're going to do some other things, too. But right here, yes. Right now, we're fine. We'll give it another look-see with the MRI."

The Cowboys will travel to San Francisco to play the 49ers in Week 4.

Randy Gregory Withdraws Appeal Of 14-Game Suspension

Sep 19, 2016 5:40 PM

Randy Gregory withdrew the appeal of his 10-game suspension for multiple violations of the NFL's substance abuse policy and now will be suspended 14 games in full, through Week 14.

Gregory won't be eligible to play this season until Week 15.

He spent time in rehab and was released earlier this month. He has not been around the team since the offseason.

At the 2015 NFL scouting combine, Gregory tested positive for marijuana, which put him in the league's drug program.

Alfred Morris Found Free Agency 'Very Insulting'

Sep 15, 2016 8:24 AM

Alfred Morris, who ended up signing with the Dallas Cowboys, found free agency to be "very insulting."

"The free-agency process was very insulting, to just say the least," Morris said. "I didn't like it one bit. I don't want to do it again."

Morris left the Washington Redskins to sign with a division rival.

"By the end of the year, I figured my time there was gone," said Morris, a sixth-round pick by then-coach Mike Shanahan in 2012. "You're not the coach's guy, you're not the GM's guy, they draft a young guy. It's a business, so I expected that. They just had a different plan and I wasn't a part of it and that was OK.

"I can't cry over spilled milk. I just had to go buy me another gallon."

Ezekiel Elliott: 'I Was Average' In NFL Debut

Sep 13, 2016 7:17 AM

Ezekiel Elliott doesn't think he was much of a factor for the Dallas Cowboys in Week 1 against the New York Giants.

"I think I was average [Sunday]. That's not why I was brought here to be average, so we've got a lot of work to get done," Elliott said.

He finished with 51 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. His longest carry went for eight yards, which means he gained just 43 yards on his other 19 carries.

Ezekiel Elliott Won't Face Charges In Alleged Domestic Incident

Sep 7, 2016 7:50 AM

The Columbus (OH) City Attorney's Office announced it has declined to pursue charges against Ezekiel Elliott in an alleged domestic violence incident from July involving a former girlfriend.

The office said it declined to pursue charges because of "conflicting and inconsistent information." It also said Elliott was cooperative in the investigation and offered up affidavits and photographs to support his case.

The NFL could still discipline the Dallas Cowboys rookie running back.

Kenny Gregory Faces Longer Suspension

Sep 4, 2016 9:02 PM

Randy Gregory has not had his appeal heard regarding an additional suspension by the NFL for violating the substance abuse policy.

The NFL has not announced more than a four-game suspension for Gregory, and the league still considers his potential "4-plus-10" ‎suspension to be pending, according to the source.

When final roster cuts were made Saturday by NFL teams, there was a mention next to Gregory's name on the Cowboys' roster of a four-game suspension, but that was in reference to his violation announced in February, not the additional violation reported in July, which the NFL has not made any announcement about.

At the 2015 NFL scouting combine, Gregory tested positive for marijuana, which put him in the league's drug program. Considered a first-round prospect out of Nebraska, he fell to the second round, where the Cowboys selected him with the 60th overall pick.

Mark Sanchez To Sign With Cowboys

Sep 3, 2016 7:39 PM

Mark Sanchez will sign with the Dallas Cowboys on a one-year deal after being released by the Denver Broncos.

Sanchez's future in Denver looked bleak after Broncos coach Gary Kubiak named Trevor Siemian his starting quarterback and had rookie Paxton Lynch take all the snaps in the team's preseason finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

John Elway said he had "a long talk'' with Sanchez Saturday morning.

"I will tell you this ... he handled it with great class,'' Elway said. "I know he's disappointed, he wanted to stay here and, you know, we just thought with where we are, we thought it was best for us to different ways at this time. But Mark was great, and you know what? He handled everything great ... I thought he handled it great and it's just unfortunate he didn't win that job.''

Tony Romo Set For Second MRI As Cowboys Mull IR Stint

Sep 1, 2016 8:24 AM

Tony Romo will have a second MRI on his injured back over the weekend, which will help the Dallas Cowboys decide whether to keep the quarterback on the active roster or place him on injured reserve.

If Romo is placed on the IR, he would have to miss the first eight weeks of the season. Dallas is on bye Week Seven, meaning he'd only have to miss seven games.

A rule change this year allows teams to bring back one player back from injured reserve without the advanced designation required in previous years, but the move can't come until they are down to 53 players.

"We're certainly getting our hands around it," Stephen Jones said of Romo's situation. "We'll be needing to make that decision obviously sometime later in the weekend. Whatever we do with him, he'll need to be on our 53 when we cut it on Friday. So you've got to have him through the 53 cut before you can put him on designated to return, if we wanted to consider that. But it may be that we just keep him on the roster. We'll just see."
