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 WR Michael Gallup (illness) is active for tonight’s game vs. the Colts. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. We’re expecting Gallup to be ready to play his usual role tonight.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (illness) is expected to play vs. the Colts tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Gallup got in just a limited practice on Friday this week, but expect him to be available for his usual role tonight.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (illness) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game vs. the Colts. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but returned to a limited practice on Friday. HC Mike McCarthy said Friday that he expects Gallup to be available come Sunday night.

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 RB Ezekiel Elliott posted a season-high 92 rushing yards in Thursday's win over the Giants, including a TD from 6 yards out early in the 2nd quarter. He actually trailed Tony Pollard in both carries (18-16) and targets (2-1) for the game, as Dallas went run heavy. Pollard averaged just 3.3 yards per rush and collected only 2 yards on 2 receptions. The level of work would be enough to support both RBs going forward, though we wouldn't expect Dallas to run the ball more than it throws most weeks. Next Sunday brings a Colts D that favors the pass more than the run. After that, however, comes a Houston defense that has been league-worst against the run this year.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott tossed 2 INTs in the 1st half of Thursday's game against the Giants, helping the visitor carry a 6-point lead into halftime. But Prescott rebounded with 2 TD throws in the 2nd half. He nearly added a 3rd, but WR CeeDee Lamb just missed getting his feet down on a 4th-quarter end-zone catch before TE Peyton Hendershot's rushing score. Next week brings a Colts D that has been 9th most friendly to QB scoring on the season.

Cowboys TE Dalton Schultz snagged both of Dallas' TD passes in Sunday's win over the Giants. He totaled 4 catches for 31 yards, with scores from 15 and 6 yards out. The Cowboys' backup TEs found significant involvement, too. Peyton Hendershot claimed a 2-yard rushing score in the 4th quarter, and Jake Ferguson caught all 3 of his targets for 57 yards -- including a 30-yarder in the 4th quarter that was Dallas' longest play of the day. Schultz will need to do better than his 13.3% target share from this game, but he still checked in 3rd on the team in that category and has been consistently good for fantasy football lineups when healthy.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb caught 6 balls for 106 yards in Thursday's win over the Giants. He led the team in both categories, as well as drawing a team-high 11 targets. Lamb nearly added a 2-yard TD in the 4th quarter but just missed getting his feed down inbounds. It's the 2nd game of 100+ yards for Lamb among the past 3. WR Michael Gallup finished 2nd on the team in targets (8), receptions (5) and yards (63). The Cowboys get the Colts in Week 13.

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 QB Dak Prescott completed 22 of his 25 passes in Sunday's blowout win over the Vikings. He tallied 276 yards and 2 TDs, with both going to RB Tony Pollard. Prescott doesn't have a worrisome matchup on the schedule until Week 16 against Philly.

Cowboys RB Tony Pollard matched Ezekiel Elliott's 15 carries in the latter's return from a knee injury. Pollard, of course, out-gained Elliott 80 yards to 42 on the ground. Elliott claimed both rushing scores, however. Pollard made up for that with a huge receiving day. He led the team in targets (6), catches (6) and receiving yards (109), while scoring both of the team's receiving TDs. Those came from 30 and 68 yards out. There might be weeks of frustrating usage for Pollard going forward, but he'll be tough to sit.

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

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is active for today’s game vs. the Vikings. He was limited in practice all week but is reportedly "light years ahead of last week." It’s unclear exactly how backfield work will be divvied between RB Tony Pollard and Elliott in his 1st game back from the knee injury. See where both guys sit in the Week 11 RB Rankings.

The Cowboys plan to give RB Tony Pollard "a little bit more in terms of touches" than RB Ezekiel Elliott agains the Vikings today, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Dallas wants to "ease Elliott back in" coming off an LCL injury and "significant contusion all the way down his shin" back in Week 7, per Pelissero. Elliott will wear a brace on that knee today. Consider him a TD-dependent RB3 play in fantasy lineups. Pollard is a RB2.

Cowboys EDGE Demarcus Lawrence is expected to play today against the Vikings, per NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. Lawrence is officially questionable and missed the 1st 2 days of practice this week. He returned for a full Friday workout, though. We haven't moved Lawrence down the Week 11 IDP rankings.

The Cowboys expect RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) to play today against the Vikings, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He adds that 1 source called Elliott "light years ahead of last week." We all know how much Dallas likes to work Elliott when he's in the lineup, but we're still betting that Tony Pollard gets enough today to be viable for fantasy football lineups.
