Cowboys QB Andy Dalton (concussion) didn't practice on Wednesday. He seems unlikely to get cleared for Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles after taking a vicious head shot last weekend. Dalton's absence would leave Dallas with QB Ben DiNucci and make all the Cowboys' pass-catchers tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Cowboys QB Andy Dalton is in the concussion protocol. We'll see if he can get cleared ahead of Sunday night's game vs. the Eagles. If not, Dallas will be down to 7th-round rookie QB Ben DiNucci, who completed 2 of 3 passes for 39 yards in relief of Dalton yesterday.

The Cowboys are signing QB Andy Dalton to a 1-year deal, according to multiple reports. It's a $3 million pact with incentives up to $7 million. It's a little surprising to see Dalton settle for a clear backup job so quickly after his Bengals release, but that suggests New England and Jacksonville were not options. Now we're back to Cam Newton as the only free-agent QB with a shot to challenge for a starting job. In Dallas, Dalton represents a big upgrade over Cooper Rush as Dak Prescott's backup. Prescott, though, accounted for every QB passing attempt for the Cowboys over the past 2 years.

The Bengals have released QB Andy Dalton. They looked for a trade partner but had no leverage with Dalton set to count nearly $18 million against the cap. We'll see where he lands, but New England looks like the only spot where Dalton would have a legitimate chance to win a starting job. This move confirms that rookie Joe Burrow will be under center for Cincinnati come Week 1.
