The NFL season is almost here. Don't miss any of the action with our daily updates: news, notes and more throughout the Cowboys' off-season. Presented by Sleep Number

Aug. 14 Updates Tyrone Crawford

#98 DL

Height: 6-4 Weight: 290 lbs College: Boise State

Defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford passed his physical and has been activated from the Active/Physically Unable to Perform list. Crawford has been working back from last year's hip surgery that sidelined him for most of the season.

Crawford still counted toward the 80-man roster while on PUP, so the Cowboys didn't need to make a roster move to activate him.

Defensive lineman Dontari Poe (quad) remains on Active/PUP for now.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Aug. 12 Updates CeeDee Lamb

#88 WR

Height: 6-2 Weight: 189 lbs College: Oklahoma

1:10 p.m. - What quarterback doesn't want as many great players around them? Dak Prescott is no different and he shared that excitement about the Cowboys' drafting CeeDee Lamb with the 17thoverall pick.

Even from the limited work the players have done so far before the first practice, Dak likes what he sees from the rookie from Oklahoma.

"Great guy. Great athlete. Great Player," Dak said of Lamb. "Excited for his future. He's very smart, very talented and he wants to learn. He's going to play a huge role in our success immediate and in the future. I couldn't be happier with that pick."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 28 Updates Dontari Poe

#95 DT

Height: 6-3 Weight: 346 lbs College: Memphis

4:30 p.m. -- Defensive linemen Tyrone Crawford and Dontari Poe have been placed on the Active/Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list for the start of training camp.

Crawford missed most of last season due to hip surgery. Poe, who reached a two-year deal with the Cowboys in March, had surgery last November for a torn quad while playing for the Panthers.

Both players are eligible to be activated from PUP at any time during camp, and the first padded practice isn't scheduled until Aug. 17 because teams will have a gradual ramp-up period after a virtual-only offseason program.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Stephen Guidry

#17 WR

Height: 6-4 Weight: 200 lbs College: Mississippi State

10:13 a.m. - Undrafted rookie wide receiver Stephen Guidry is expected to take a voluntary opt-out from the 2020 season, according to NFL Media and reports.

Once official, Guidry will be placed on a reserve/opt-out list and the Cowboys will retain his rights for 2021.

In May, the Cowboys signed Guidry as a rookie free agent out of Mississippi State. He is the second Cowboys player expected to take a voluntary opt-out, along with veteran cornerback Maurice Canady.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 26 Updates Jon'Vea Johnson

#81 WR

Height: 6-0 Weight: 192 lbs College: Toledo

6:53 p.m. - The Cowboys have their first member of the NFL's new reserve/COVID-19 list.

Sunday's transaction wire revealed six players across the league who have been placed on the list. Among them was second-year Cowboys receiver Jon'Vea Johnson, who is returning from spending his rookie season on injured reserve.

It's hard to quantify Johnson's presence on the list, as it does not specify whether he has tested positive for COVID-19 or come in contact with someone who has. The bottom line, though, is that he'll need to quarantine for the time being.

With the rest of the Cowboys' roster scheduled to report over the course of the week, this will likely be a developing situation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 25 Updates Isaac Alarcón

#60 T

Height: 6-7 Weight: 320 lbs College: Monterrey Institute of Technology

On the same day the Cowboys officially signed their seven draft picks, the club also signed offensive tackle Isaac Alarcon.

The rookie from Mexico via Monterrey Tech, is part of the NFL's International Player Pathway program. Alarcon, one of four international players signed to NFC East teams, is expected to remain with the Cowboys, at least on the practice squad, for the entire season.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 20 Updates Bradlee Anae

#51 DE

Height: 6-3 Weight: 257 lbs College: Utah

1:59 p.m. - With the start of training camp inching closer, the Cowboys' rookie class is starting to reach deals on contracts.

Defensive end Bradlee Anae, a fifth-round pick out of Utah, has agreed to terms. His agent tweeted the news Monday afternoon.

Quarterback Ben Dinucci, the Cowboys' seventh-round pick out of James Madison, has also agreed to terms. He'll compete for the third quarterback spot behind starter Dak Prescott and veteran backup Andy Dalton.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- July 18 Updates CeeDee Lamb

#88 WR

Height: 6-2 Weight: 189 lbs College: Oklahoma

1:47 p.m. - The NFL and the NFLPA continue to negotiate key matters regarding training camp and the season during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the league is moving forward with upcoming camp report dates.

Rookies are set to report as early as Tuesday, followed by quarterbacks and injured players Thursday and the rest of the rosters July 28, NFL Media reported Saturday, citing a memo circulated to clubs. Rookies for the Texans and Chiefs are scheduled to report Monday because their season opener starts earlier than the rest of the league (Sept. 10).

The Cowboys will hold camp at their world headquarters, The Star in Frisco, this year. According to NFL Media, no more than 20 players at a time will be allowed at a team facility for now.

The Cowboys haven't signed their seven-man draft class yet, but they've already reached deals with 15 rookie free agents.

While the NFL plans to start camps on time, the league is still working to finalize a number of critical items with the players' association, including testing and safety protocols and the schedule for camp and preseason.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- June 11 Updates Roger Goodell

NFL Commissioner

Due to the nation's COVID-19 crisis, the NFL has informed teams that in-person minicamps won't be permitted before the voluntary offseason program period ends June 26, according to an NFL Media report.

The Cowboys and the league's other 31 teams have the option to continue their virtual programs for another two weeks through June 26. But it appears the Cowboys won't be able to fully reconvene before training camp. That schedule has not yet been announced.

Last Friday, the league gave the green light for coaching staffs to begin returning to team facilities. But non-rehabbing players are still training in virtual mode while the league continues finalizing health and safety protocols for their eventual return.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- June 9 Updates DeMarcus Lawrence

#90 DE

Height: 6-3 Weight: 265 lbs College: Boise State

7:00 p.m. - DeMarcus Lawrence and his fellow Cowboys pass rushers, the Hot Boyz, continue to drive relief efforts for those impacted by the nation's COVID-19 crisis.
