Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is active for today’s game vs. the Titans. He was added to the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice, so he should be ready for his usual role today.

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) is active for today's game against the Bears. S Malik Hooker (hamstring) is inactive. That could deliver a slight boost to the playing time of safeties Jayron Kearse and Donovan Wilson.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Bears. He’ll get a Week 9 bye and reportedly has a good chance to be back for Week 10. RB Tony Pollard should get workhorse usage today. He’ll be backed up by practice-squad call ups Qadree Ollison and Malik Davis.

The Texans are open to trading WR Brandin Cooks, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Schefter lists the Giants, Rams and Vikings as potential suitors. We're not sure any of those destinations would help Cooks' 2022 fantasy value. Schefter notes that Cooks is due $18 million fully guaranteed next season, so that contract might need to be restructured for a deal to get done.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is not expected to play vs. the Bears today. He's listed as doubtful after missing practice all week. RB Tony Pollard is positioned for a workhorse role against Chicago's 25th-ranked RB defense. RBs Qadree Ollison and Malik Davis were both elevated from the practice squad on Saturday.

The Cowboys expect LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) to be ready for today's game against the Bears, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. He belongs in IDP lineups for the high-upside sack matchup. S Malik Hooker (hamstring) is a game-time decision. Try to avoid using him after he missed the entire practice week.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is expected to play vs. the Titans. He was a late-week addition to the injury report and turned up questionable. He should be a good bet for targets with teammate Nico Collins out.

The Cowboys expect RB Ezekiel Elliott to return from his knee sprain after their Week 9 bye, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Zeke is officially doubtful for Sunday's game vs. the Bears, but it sounds like he might end up missing just that 1 game. We'll keep an eye on him when Dallas comes out of the bye.

Cowboys LB Micah Parsons (shoulder) and S Malik Hooker (hamstring) are questionable for Sunday's game against the Bears. HC Mike McCarthy said Friday he doesn't have "high concern" that Parsons will miss the game, so we should be good to use him in a high-upside sack matchup. Hooker didn't practice all week and shouldn't be in IDP lineups even if he's active.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game vs. the Titans. He was added to the injury report on Friday but put in a full practice. We'll look for further updates on Cooks' status, but he can stay penciled into Week 8 fantasy lineups for now.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game vs. the Bears. He didn’t practice all week and looks likely to sit through Dallas’ upcoming Week 9 bye. Zeke’s absence should land RB Tony Pollard in a workhorse role. It’ll be RBs Qadree Ollison and Malik Davis behind him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Cowboys don't expect RB Ezekiel Elliott to play Sunday against the Bears. He took a shot directly to his right knee in last Sunday's win over the Lions and has not practiced this week. If he's out, Tony Pollard becomes 1 of the week's most attractive fantasy football plays at the position.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) remained sidelined on Thursday. He could probably play vs. the Bears this weekend without practicing, but there's a real chance Elliott sits that one out, especially with Dallas' upcoming Week 9 bye. We'll see how he's listed on the final injury report.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) did not practice on Wednesday and admitted afterwards that he might miss this weekend's game vs. the Bears. “I think it’s a consideration, but it all depends on how I feel at the end of the week," Elliott said. The Star-Telegram's Clarence Hill reports that Elliott has a Grade 2 MCL sprain and "deep thigh bruise," but a source tells The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken that it's more of a "hyperextension injury." Regardless, it sounds like there's a good chance Elliott is held out of Sunday's game, especially with a Week 9 bye on tap. His absence would turn Tony Pollard into a RB1. We'll continue to keep a close eye on Zeke's status.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott injured his right knee in the 2nd half of Sunday's win over the Lions but was able to play through it. “I think I’ve got a contusion on it. I still have to go back and talk to the trainers," Elliott said after the game. We'll keep an eye on this. RB Tony Pollard would obviously turn into a strong fantasy option if Elliott misses time.

Cowboys Dak Prescott threw for just 207 yards and 1 TD in Sunday's win over the Lions. It marked the 1st time he had played since injuring his right thumb in the opener. Dallas dropped him back only 28 times vs. 31 team rushing attempts. Prescott completed 76% of his throws and averaged 8.3 yards per attempts. So we don't have any concern for him coming off the disappointing fantasy stat line. WR CeeDee Lamb led the team with 70 receiving yards on 4 catches (6 targets). Noah Brown drew a team-high 7 targets, catching 5 for 50 yards. TE Dalton Schultz caught all 5 of his targets for 49 yards. No other Cowboy drew more than 2 looks in the game.

Cowboys RBs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard both delivered for fantasy football teams in Sunday's win over the Lions. Elliott picked up 57 yards and scored twice among 15 carries. Pollard rushed 12 times for 83 yards and caught 2 passes for 26 more, giving him 109 total yards for the game. The 14 touches were a season high for Pollard. According to Pro Football Focus, he ran 4 more routes than Elliott for the game, marking the 1st time this season that Pollard has led in that category. We'll see whether that becomes a trend (as it probably should). Dallas gets positive RB matchups with the Bears and Packers the next 2 games, sandwiching a Week 9 bye.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. He’ll play vs. the Lions on Sunday for the 1st time since the opener. There’s obviously risk to a QB returning from a throwing-thumb injury. But the ceiling is lofty against Detroit’s 28th-ranked QB defense.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (thumb) put in another full practice on Thursday. He remains on track to return for this weekend's tasty matchup vs. the Lions.

Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy says doctors have cleared QB Dak Prescott (thumb) to play, according to NFL Network's Jane Slater. The team plans for Prescott to throw 40-50 passes at Thursday's practice, and the QB appears on track to return Sunday against the Lions.
