ESPN Dallas is reporting that Cowboys halfback Lance Dunbar underwent a minor knee procedure after Sunday's win over Cleveland.Fantasy Spin:This puts his status in question for Thursday's game against Washington. Dunbar isn't really a usable fantasy player anyway, especially with DeMarco Murray slated to return from injury any week now. For now, Felix Jones will handle most of the rushing work for Dallas with Phillip Tanner getting a carry or two here and there as a change of pace back.

Talk about pressure, Jason Garrett is coaching in the same stadium with the guy who may want his job, Mike Holmgren. Holmgren can pretty much call his own shots on where he wants to coach, so having a guy like that looking over your shoulder creates a very cold shadow. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Holmgren only has one preference, and that is the Dallas Cowboys.
He has denied...

receiver Kevin Ogletree each made early exits during the team’s 23-20 overtime
victory against the Cleveland Browns, while linebacker DeMarcus Ware left the
game but was able to return.
Following the game, the Cowboys announced Smith suffered a
high ankle sprain. The offensive tackle will miss the team’s upcoming game...
ARLINGTON, Texas Cowboys starting left tackle Tyron Smith exited with a left high ankle sprain late in the first quarter Sunday and did not return.
Smith went into the locker room following the injury and returned to the sideline with his left ankle heavily taped. He worked on some moves with reserve center Kevin Kowalski but never went back into the game.

As the Cowboys navigate past the 10 game barrier in their season and in to the stretch drive, we now have enough data to begin to learn about this team based on what they do well and more importantly, it seems, what they don't do well at all.
We know that this team has the fewest 10 play drives in the NFL. Of the Cowboys 112 drives, only 11 have lasted 10 plays. That is lower...
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By SCHUYLER DIXON AP Sports Writer Dez Bryant may finally be ready to stop being a riddle.
The Cowboys receiver has been great one game and hard to find the next. He created a scene at a mall one year, then trouble with the law the next.
But now he has multiple 100-yard receiving games for the first time, including a career-best...
As the editor-in-chief of a popular sports comedy blog, I get two kinds of e-mails: the ones from people who have no idea who I am, but want a link anyway (sample: “HI JOSH, Spring is around the corner, here are the 50 greatest boobtacular moments in sports”), and the ones from porn tubes who just learned something about sports and think I should know about it.In the interest...

Cowboys halfback Felix Jones missed practice on Tuesday because of a sore knee.Fantasy Spin:He was originally slated to be the team's starter Thursday against Washington but now his availability is somewhat in question. Lance Dunbar and Phillip Tanner both saw first team reps in practice on Tuesday. They'll probably split carries Thursday if Jones can't play.
There will be a lot of talk about the hit that T.J. Ward hit on Cowboys receiver Kevin Ogletree. You may not like the rules, but the latest NFL rules give referees latitude to call unnecessary roughness in their judgement at basically any time at all. So all the talk about whether T.J. Ward hit Ogletree in the chest or not is moot, unfortunately. Don’t mistake my explanation as...
