Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that his team will play its starters in Saturday night's regular-season finale at Philadelphia. "We're going to line up to do what we need to do to win the game," McCarthy told reporters, according to The Athletic's Jon Machota. We wouldn't be shocked if RB Ezekiel Elliott gets the night off to rest his knee, or if the Eagles decide to rest starters and thus present a light challenge. For now, though, you should assume that any active Cowboys on your fantasy football roster will be going in Week 18.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy tested positive for COVID and will miss Thursday night's game vs. the Saints, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. McCarthy is 1 of 8 members of the Cowboys to test positive, Schefter adds. It's unclear how many are players. We'll keep you updated.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out for today's game vs. the Raiders, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Lamb has made some progress through the protocol but was always a long shot to get cleared for this Thursday game. With WR Amari Cooper (COVID) also out, Dallas is down to WRs Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown and Malik Turner. TE Dalton Schultz should also play a big role in the passing game today.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has landed on the COVID list. He's out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and the Thanksgiving game vs. the Raiders. Cooper's absence should mean target boosts for CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz. Cedrick Wilson is the favorite for #3 WR duties, but Noah Brown and Malik Turner might also mix in.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is not listed on the final Week 9 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday. ESPN's Ed Werder reported Thursday that the Cowboys have an "unlimited" game plan for Prescott vs. Denver this weekend. He’s safe to get back into fantasy lineups.

ESPN's Ed Werder reported on NFL Live that the Cowboys have an "unlimited" game plan for QB Dak Prescott (calf) this week. Werder said that means the team will take full advantage of Prescott's mobility outside the pocket. Dallas played it extremely safe with this calf injury, so we're not expecting Prescott to be at all limited vs. Denver on Sunday.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy confirmed that QB Dak Prescott (calf) is expected to be a full-go in Thursday's practice and play vs. the Broncos on Sunday. We'll continue to monitor his status, but Prescott can be penciled into Week 9 fantasy lineups.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice. HC Mike McCarthy previously said that he expects Prescott to be a full-go on Thursday. We'll see if that comes to fruition. Prescott is fully expected back for Sunday's game vs. the Broncos.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy said Monday that he expects QB Dak Prescott (calf) to be a "full go" for Thursday's practice, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That should certainly put Prescott on track to face the Broncos -- now down top pass rusher Von Miller -- on Sunday.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was "really, really close to playing" vs. the Vikings on Sunday night. It's "looking good" for Prescott to return for Week 9 vs. the Broncos, Rapoport adds. We'll track Prescott's practice participation this week.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) is inactive for tonight’s game vs. the Vikings. He was seemingly close to playing, but Dallas is playing it safe here. We’re expecting Prescott back next week. QB Cooper Rush makes his 1st career start tonight -- a clear downgrade for Cowboys pass catchers.

Both ESPN and NFL Network report that Dak Prescott plans to work out before Sunday night's game against the Vikings to determine whether he can play. Adam Schefter adds, though, that "some within the organization believe" Cooper Rush will start the game after taking team reps in practice this week. Barring some further update ahead of the early games, waiting for Prescott will be a risky move for your fantasy football lineups today.

The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken tweets, "It would surprise many close to situation if Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) starts Sunday vs. Vikings." On top of his calf issue, Prescott left the team on Friday following the death of his grandmother. He's back with the team now and traveled to Minnesota. But Gehlken notes that backup QB Cooper Rush saw the "most meaningful reps" of the practice week. At this point, we're leaning toward Prescott missing Sunday night's game. But we'll see if we get a more concrete update on Sunday morning.
