Cowboys HC Mike McCarthy does not expect RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) to play vs. the Packers later today, according to ESPN's Ed Werder. Werder adds that McCarthy "wasn't definitive," but all signs over the past 24 hours have pointed to Zeke missing this one. We won't get Dallas' inactives until 3 pm ET, but Elliott should be on fantasy benches -- and RB Tony Pollard in starting lineups.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is active for today’s game vs. the Giants. Underwhelming even before the wrist injury and trade drama, Cooks is no better than a WR3 in Week 10 fantasy lineups. WR Nico Collins (groin) is also active for Houston and should step back in as the #2 WR.

ESPN's Adam Schefter and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is likely to play against the Giants today. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable. That follows last week's healthy scratch after Cooks demanded a trade. The team has revoked Cooks' captaincy as a result of that demand, according to Rapoport. We're expecting Cooks to play his usual role today, but there's at least some risk that that's not the case.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) "may very well be held out" of today's game vs. the Packers today. "If there is any uncertainty at all, Elliott won't play," Rapoport adds. "The team will be cautious." We'll look for further updates on Zeke but won't get Dallas' inactives until 3 pm ET. We're currently projecting Elliott to miss this game, turning Tony Pollard into a RB1.

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the Cowboys don’t expect to decide whether RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) will play at Green Bay on Sunday until they see him in pregame warmups. “Expect a conservative decision,” he adds. That suggests it’s more likely Elliott doesn’t play. RB Tony Pollard looks like a stronger touch bet than usual either way, though not having Elliott in the lineup would obviously help his outlook

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Packers after being limited in practice all week. Owner Jerry Jones has said multiple times this week that he expects Elliott to play in that one, but Zeke sounded less sure when asked on Wednesday. We’ll look for further updates on his status. We won’t get Dallas’ inactives until 3 pm ET on Sunday.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Giants. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Between this wrist injury, his recent trade request and Houston’s lackluster passing game, Cooks is a shaky Week 10 fantasy play. WR Nico Collins (groin) is also listed as questionable after 3 limited practices.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) remained limited in Thursday's practice. Elliott suggested earlier this week that he's not a lock to return for Sunday's game vs. the Packers, but check back tomorrow for another update on his status for that one.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. We'll see what he does tomorrow and how he's listed on the final injury report for Sunday's game vs. the Giants. WR Nico Collins (groin) remained limited on Thursday.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott said after a limited practice Wednesday that he'll "need to get some more reps to see where I'm at" for Sunday's game at Green Bay, according to Jon Machota of The Athletic. "The long game (playoffs) is definitely the priority," Elliott added. It sounds like even if Elliott's ready to return Sunday from the knee injury that cost him the last game, we should expect a lighter-than-usual workload. That bodes well for RB Tony Pollard's usage. We'll keep watching for more on the situation throughout the week.

Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) put in a limited practice on Wednesday. He's tentatively expected to return for this weekend's game vs. the Packers, but we'll keep an eye on his progress over the next few days.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks (wrist) did not practice on Wednesday. He's expected to play vs. the Giants this weekend -- if his health allows it. Cooks played through this wrist injury in Week 8. We'll see if he's able to practice tomorrow. WR Nico Collins (groin) got in a limited practice on Wednesday.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected back for this weekend's game vs. the Packers. We'll get Dallas' 1st practice report of the week tomorrow.

NFL Network's Steve Smith said he talked with Texans WR Brandin Cooks and that the veteran will be returning to the team ahead of the Week 10 game against the Giants. That's what we anticipated, given that Cooks is signed through 2024. Expect the wideout to get back to his role as lead target for Houston -- and WR3 for fantasy football lineups.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks is officially inactive for tonight's game vs. the Eagles. Try to avoid Houston's passing game if you can help it. But if you're playing 1-game DFS contests, the Texans' WRs tonight are Phillip Dorsett, Chris Moore, Tyron Johnson and Jalen Camp. Woof.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks is not expected to play tonight against the Eagles, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Cooks has not returned to team headquarters this week, while expressing disappointment over not being traded. Mike Garafolo reports that Cooks and the team will "continue to talk and try for a reset." We'll see where this situation goes, but Cooks' only option besides returning is to sit out in violation of his contract. We wouldn't drop Cooks from fantasy football rosters just yet if you can help it.

Texans WR Brandin Cooks' status for tonight's game vs. the Eagles is "in doubt," according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. "It's difficult to believe, given that Cooks hasn't been around all week, that he's going to play in this game, but no final determination on that just yet," Pelissero adds. Cooks didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday and publicly voiced displeasure over the fact that he wasn't traded. We'll get Houston's inactives around 7 pm ET tonight.

The Texans list WR Brandin Cooks as questionable for Thursday night's game against the Eagles. There is no injury challenging Cooks' availability. He has simply been away from the team for personal reasons this week, while Houston elected not to accept any trade offers for the veteran. It's not clear how the 2 sides will proceed. The Texans clearly want him to continue playing. Cooks has indicated he'd be happier elsewhere ... but also signed an extension before the season. We'll see about his status ahead of the Thursday night game. Houston also ruled WR Nico Collins (groin) out. So the passing game would be in real trouble (even more than usual) without Cooks.

Don't expect to see a significant shift in Dallas' backfield going forward, despite RB Tony Pollard's big Week 8. “There’s no argument,” owner Jerry Jones said when asked whether RB Ezekiel Elliott should still be the team's lead back. "Zeke’s ability to punish, Zeke’s ability to deliver, Zeke’s ability, what he does for us in pass protection, and, frankly, Zeke’s ability to make big plays are there, and we’re going to go where Zeke goes. He’s that integral to our success.” It's blatantly clear that Pollard gives Dallas' offense more juice. But the Cowboys -- check that, Jerry Jones -- has 90 million reasons to stick with Elliott. We'll see if Pollard picks up any additional work when the Cowboys come off their Week 9 bye, but he's still best considered a RB3 or flex for now.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott delivered 250 yards and 2 TDs on 21-of-27 passing in Sunday's win over the Bears. He added 34 yards and a TD on 5 rushing attempts. He found WR CeeDee Lamb for a team-high 77 yards on 5 catches and connected for a TD. The other TD pass went to rookie TE Jake Ferguson. TE Dalton Schultz tied for the team target lead (7) and caught 6 for 74 yards. WR Michael Gallup added 4-49 receiving on 6 targets. No other Cowboy drew more than 2 targets. Prescott looks like at least a top-12 fantasy QB going forward, with solid matchups at Green Bay and Minnesota following the Week 9 bye.
