Cowboys CB Morris Claiborne has been diagnosed with tendinitis in his knee. It is not thought to be serious, but he will sit out Thursday's practice.

The 24-year-old out of LSU injured his knee during Wednesday's practice and was immediately sent for x-rays. There is no structural damage which is good, so consider him day-to-day for now.

Josh Brent has been released from rehab and the Cowboys are monitoring him from afar. 

Brent hasn't played a snap for the Cowboys since 2012. He was a seventh round draft pick in 2010.

Rolando McClain (stomach virus) returned to practice on Wednesday.

There were some conflicting reports yesterday that he suffered an ankle injury but that report was quickly corrected to a stomach bug.

Tony Romo will practice on Wednesday.

Romo was given the day off Tuesday to rest as he had been a fairly active participant over the weekend. Considering he is still in the latter stages of his recovery from back surgery, you can expect the Cowboys to coddle him early and then work him hard towards the end of camp. Given his weapons in Dallas, he remains a top-10 fantasy option.

Dez Bryant unlikely to land a new contract before the start of the season.

Bryant is at the tail-end of a five-year, $11.811 million deal and is set to be a free agent at the end of this season. Obviously the Cowboys would have wanted to get an extension done prior to the start of the season but Bryant's demand may just be too high right now. It's a risk letting him walk at the end of the year, but he hasn't been without his fair share of injuries and problems as well, so the risk goes both ways.

The Cowboys and LT Tyron Smith have reached an agreement in principle on an 8-year, $98 million deal.

The reports back in early June were that the Cowboys wants to lock up their LT Tyron Smith to a long term extension "as soon as they can." Dez Bryant's contract took precedence but they got the deal done today. Smith was a second-team All-Pro in 2013 and he'll be a Dallas Cowboy for a long time.

Update: Cowboys DE DeMarcus Lawrence suffered a broken foot Tuesday.

The Cowboys had viewed rookie Demarcus Lawrence, who they traded up to draft him at pick 34, as a Day one starter at right defensive end. The former Boise State D-Lineman is expected to miss between 8-10 weeks, which is a huge blow for a Dallas team that had already lost DeMarcus Ware to the Broncos this offseason. The boys in blue will now be forced to rely on Jeremy Mincey who has about as many sacks over the last couple seasons as Ware could get in a couple weeks.

Matt Johnson will sit at least one week while recovering from a hamstring injury.

A tough break for Johnson who has experienced injury issues in the past. He has yet to appear in an NFL game because he can't stay healthy and his 2014 campaign is following a career trend.

Cowboys second-round pick DeMarcus Lawrence left Tuesday’s practice early with a right ankle/foot injury suffered during pass rush drills. 

It's unknown the severity of Lawrence's injury, but it is worth noting that he was carted off the field. The Cowboys have had a rash of injuries so far and will cross their fingers that Lawrence's ankle issue is minor. If healthy, Lawrence will push Jeremy Mincey for playing time.

Update: Rolando McClain left practice Tuesday due to a stomach virus, not an injury.

Early reports had suggested he suffered an ankle injury so this is definitely a more positive update.
