Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is “expected to be ready to go” for training camp. He adds that Prescott isn’t expected to participate much in spring practices. Regardless, it’s good news, as the 6th-year passer has progressed well from 2 ankle surgeries. A healthy Dak projects as a top-5 fantasy passer.

The Cowboys and QB Dak Prescott have agreed to a 4-year, $160 million contract, according to multiple reports. Prescott is getting a $66 million signing bonus, a record $126 million guaranteed and a no-trade clause. This deal took years to get done, but the Cowboys were never going to let Dak get away. He's been awesome since arriving back in 2016, completing 66% of his passes, averaging 7.7 yards per attempt and tossing 106 TDs vs. 40 INTs. More of a game manager for his first 3 seasons, Prescott exploded for 4,902 yards and 30 scores in 2019, finishing 2nd among QBs in fantasy points. He was on pace to smash those marks last season before suffering a season-ending fractured and dislocated ankle in Week 5. Prescott's rehab is reportedly going well -- and this contract is confirmation that the Cowboys have no concerns. Dak sits 3rd among QBs in our early 2021 fantasy rankings.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is "a little ahead of schedule" in his rehab from October's fractured and dislocated ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Prescott was originally pegged for a 4-6 month recovery timetable and is expected to be ready "long before" the start of the 2021 season. Rapoport also reports that Dak had a 2nd surgery on that ankle in December to "strengthen his deltoid ligament, clean out the ankle and make it more structurally sound." The Cowboys are expected to franchise-tag Prescott again if the 2 sides can't agree to a long-term deal.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott is making "great progress" in his recovery from October's fractured and dislocated right ankle, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He's walking and working in the pool and on an anti-gravity treadmill. Dallas believes Prescott will "come back better than ever." Those 2 sides still need to come to an agreement on a long-term deal after Dak played under the franchise tag in 2020.

The Cowboys have ruled LB Leighton Vander Esch (ankle) out for Sunday's game against the Giants. It'll be his 2nd straight missed game. No Dallas LB other than Jaylon Smith played more than 58% of the snaps with LVE out last week against Philadelphia.

The Lions are waiving S Jayron Kearse. He started 7 games before missing Week 16 with a hip injury. His departure seems to clear the way for Tracy Walker to remain in the starting lineup. Walker returned to full playing time Saturday against the Bucs after 6 straight contests of part-time duty. He led the team with 9 tackles (6 solo) in the loss to Tampa Bay.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is active for today’s game vs. the Eagles. We’re expecting him to share backfield work with Tony Pollard, leaving both guys as just RB3 or flex plays.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play against the Eagles today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Zeke remained limited in practice all week and might be returning to a committee backfield alongside Tony Pollard. Last time we saw Elliott 2 weeks ago, he tallied 12 carries and 3 targets to Pollard's 11 carries and 2 targets.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’s a borderline WR3 against a burnable Eagles secondary on Sunday.

The Cowboys list RB Ezekiel Elliott as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles with the calf injury that kept him out last week. Elliott put in limited practices all week and seems likely to take the field. Fantasy football owners might be better off if he turns up inactive, though. If Elliott does play, we'd bet on something near an even touch split between Elliott and Pollard. We'll keep an eye on Elliott's status leading up to the early Sunday games.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (hip) was a full-go in Wednesday's practice. He's evidently on track to play vs. the Eagles this weekend after getting knocked out of last week's win over the 49ers. Gallup actually leads Dallas with 35 targets over the past 5 weeks.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) will be limited in practice on Wednesday, HC Mike McCarthy said. That presumably puts Zeke on track to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We might see him and Tony Pollard share backfield work like they did in Week 14 -- especially after Pollard's big outing vs. the 49ers last week.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup suffered a hip pointer in Sunday's win over the 49ers, according to the Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken. It's a relatively minor injury, and Gallup hasn't been ruled out for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. We'll monitor his status throughout the week. Gallup was a fringy fantasy option at 100%, though, so he probably shouldn't be in your Week 16 plans.

Cowboys LB Leighton Vander Esch and S Xavier Woods left Sunday's win over the 49ers with injuries. Vander Esch injured an ankle, which will require a Monday MRI. Woods sustained a rib injury. We'll see about the status of both defensive starters heading into next Sunday's matchup with Philadelphia. Neither is more than a low-level IDP option at this point, though.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup was knocked out of Sunday's game against the 49ers with a hip injury. He's been replaced by WR Noah Brown. We'll pass along an update on Gallup when we get one.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is inactive for today’s game against the 49ers. It’s a surprise after reports all week that he’d play through the calf injury again. His absence today leaves Tony Pollard in a feature role. It’s a tough matchup behind a beat-up offensive line, but projected volume has Pollard in the RB2 mix.

The Cowboys on Saturday activated CB Trevon Diggs (foot) from IR. The rookie missed the past 4 games after sustaining a hairline fracture in his left foot. We'll try to find out how much Diggs is expected to play against the 49ers today. If he's back to full playing time, Diggs would be a nice option for DB spots in IDP lineups. The fact that Dallas had replacement CBs Saivion Smith (IR) and Rashard Robinson (questionable) go down with injuries last week can only help Diggs' chances.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) is expected to play vs. the 49ers today, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "It’s just a matter of how effective he’ll be," Rapoport adds. Zeke totaled just 59 yards on 14 touches in a plus matchup against the Bengals last week. He's just a RB3 today

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (calf) was listed as "did not practice" all week. He's officially questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers. It sounds like Zeke will continue to battle through this calf injury, but note that he tallied 12 carries and 3 targets last week to Tony Pollard’s 11 carries and 2 targets. We could see a similar split on Sunday. Elliott is no better than a RB3 or flex play.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy "expressed confidence" Monday that CB Trevon Diggs, CB Chidobe Awuzie and S Donovan Wilson will return to practice Wednesday. Wilson missed the past 2 games with a groin injury. Diggs has been on IR since a Week 9 foot fracture but is eligible to return whenever he proves ready. Awuzie missed last week's game on the COVID list. Diggs and Awuzie are the starting outside corners when healthy. Wilson reached 100% playing time in his last 2 games. All 3 will have some IDP relevance if they make it back for Sunday's game against San Francisco.
