Cowboys LB Micah Parsons is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Titans with a left-hand injury that limited his practice the past 2 days. He said after Tuesday's workout that he still expected to play. The team has ruled out LB Leighton Vander Esch (shoulder), which will boost the playing time for LBs Anthony Barr and Damone Clark. Check our Week 17 IDP rankings to see whether either should factor into your fantasy football plans.

Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch (shoulder) is expected to miss his 2nd straight game Thursday against the Titans. He did some work on the side during Tuesday's practice but likely need more time before he's game ready. Rookie Damone Clark started in LVE's place against the Eagles but played just 69% of the defensive snaps and logged 4 total tackles. Veteran LB Anthony Barr has played 2 of his 4 largest snap snares all season the past 2 weeks. He has topped out at 7 total tackles, though, and has exceeded 4 solos just once (Week 15). We wouldn't bother with any Cowboys LB other than Micah Parsons for IDP lineups in most cases.

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (illness), CB Trevon Diggs (illness) and EDGE Dorance Armstrong (knee) are all active for today's game against the Eagles, despite entering the day questionable. Use any as planned in your IDP lineups.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) and LB Micah Parsons (illness) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Eagles. EDGE Dorance Armstrong (knee) is also questionable. LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) is officially out, leaving rookie Damone Clark to start in his place.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy on Monday ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch out for Saturday's game against the Eagles. He also revealed that it's a shoulder injury for LVE rather than a neck issue, as originally reported. That's good news given Vander Esch's history of neck trouble. His absence this week should turn rookie LB Damone Clark into a full-timer. The 5th-round pick looks like an upside waiver-wire addition in deeper IDP leagues.

Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch hurt his neck in Sunday's OT loss to the Jaguars. That's a particularly worrisome injury for LVE, who has a history of neck issues dating back to college. We'll see about his outlook for Week 16 and beyond.

Cowboys EDGE Dorance Armstrong (ankle) is active for today's game against the Jaguars.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs hurt his right thumb in Sunday's win over the Texans. He left briefly but returned and played 91% of defensive snaps for the game. Diggs told reporters afterward that he doesn't expect to miss further game time with the injury.

Cowboys CB Anthony Brown tore his left Achilles' tendon in Sunday night's win over the Colts. He'll obviously miss the rest of the season. The injury could also challenge his readiness for the start of next year. It's particularly unfortunate timing for Brown because he's set to hit free agency in March, ahead of his age-30 season.

Cowboys CB Anthony Brown hurt his left ankle in the 2nd half of Sunday night's game against the Colts. The team quickly ruled him out for the game, and Brown could be seen riding a cart to the locker room with a towel over his head. That doesn't bode well for his outlook. We'll see about the official diagnosis.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) and S Jayron Kearse (shoulder) are active for tonight's game against the Colts.


Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Colts. He missed the 1st 2 days of practice but returned for a limited workout Friday. HC Mike McCarthy said he expects Diggs to play, according to NFL.com.

Cowboys EDGE Demarcus Lawrence (foot), LB/EDGE Micah Parsons (knee, ankle) and S Donovan Wilson (illness) are active for today's game against the Giants.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cowboys EDGE Demarcus Lawrence and LB/EDGE Micah Parsons are expected to play today against the Giants. Further, he adds that Lawrence has been playing through a stress fracture in 1 of his feet. Lawrence said earlier in the week that he's dealing with issues in both feet and that his right knee "hurts worse than the feet," according to SI.com. Lawrence played a season-low 40% of the snaps last time out, but that followed a season-high 72%. He also has sacks in 3 straight contests. So the physical issues add risk, but there's still plenty of value to putting him into IDP fantasy football lineups.

Cowboys EDGE Demarcus Lawrence (foot), LB Micah Parsons (knee, ankle) and S Donovan Wilson (illness) are questionable for Thursday's game against the Giants. Parsons said Tuesday that he'll be ready to play. Wilson didn't pop up on the injury report until missing Wednesday's practice. Lawrence played through the same issue last week, so we'd bet on him playing. We'll check the status on all 3 Thursday afternoon.

Cowboys EDGE Demarcus Lawrence (foot) and CB Anthony Brown (concussion) are active for today's game against the Vikings.
