Dunbar touched the ball only once Sunday against the Bears, but made it count by scoring on a one-yard touchdown run.

EDGE Analysis

He isn't exactly a prototypical short yardage back, but the element of surprise (and a weak Chicago run defense) allowed Dunbar to find the end zone. With Ezekiel Elliott emerging as a workhorse back and Cole Beasley showing great chemistry out of the slot with quarterback Dak Prescott though, there won't be many looks left over for a player with Dunbar's skill set.

Dunbar rushed thrice for six yards and added 26 yards receiving on two catches in Sunday's victory over Washington.

EDGE Analysis

After being held to a single touch in Week 1, Week 2 offered an upswing for Dunbar, but he's still far from being fantasy relevant. With first-round pick Ezekiel Elliott and veteran Alfred Morris in front of him, it's hard to imagine Dunbar getting more than a few carries per game. He has flashed ability as a receiver in the past, but without any level of consistency - or career touchdowns - he still has too much to prove to warrant consideration.

Dunbar caught just one pass on two targets for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

If there's an encouraging sign for Dunbar going forward, it's that Jason Witten and Cole Beasley combined for 26 targets in Week 1 as rookie quarterback Dak Prescott focused on underneath routes rather than stretching the field. Those routes are Dunbar's specialty, so his workload could increase once he's demonstrated that his knee is healthy again.

Dunbar (knee) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

EDGE Analysis

Despite missing the entire preseason while rehabbing from a torn ACL suffered in October, the 26-year-old Dunbar is ready for Week 1 against the Giants. He figures to get some snaps on passing downs, but it shouldn't be assumed he'll dominate those situations, as rookie Ezekiel Elliott is a capable receiver in his own right. Dunbar displayed his pass-catching prowess early last season, tallying 21 receptions in four games before he went down for the year.

Dunbar (knee) appears to be ready for Week 1 against the Giants, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunbar missed the entire preseason while rehabbing from an ACL tear suffered in October, but he should still be fine for the start of the regular season, as he's been back at practice for the past two weeks. He was a huge part of the Dallas passing game early last season, catching 21 passes in just four appearances, including eight for 70 yards in a Week 1 win over the Giants. Dunbar may not be quite so involved this season, as first-round draft pick Ezekiel Elliott boasts an impressive three-down skillset.

Dunbar (knee) was held out of Thursday's preseason finale against the Texans as a precaution.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys elected to take no chances with the oft-injured running back. Dunbar will once again fill a complementary role in the backfield as a pass catcher but his lack of preseason reps with quarterback Dak Prescott (who steps in for the injured Tony Romo) could limit his targets in the early going.

Dunbar (knee) is in danger of missing the Cowboys' final two preseason games, Bryan Broaddus of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunbar returned to practice Sunday in a limited capacity, but the Cowboys know what they're getting in the running back and may not feel the need to risk his health any further in preseason action. He's not a lock to make the roster at this point, but his chances are good enough given he avoids any setbacks. Expect the team to ease him back into action throughout this week's practice sessions.

Dunbar (knee) has been cleared for a return to the field, but will be eased into individual drills during Sunday's practice, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunbar started training camp on the PUP list after suffering a torn ACL and MCL last season. He's now been cleared for practice, but is expected to be eased into action to avoid any further setbacks with the knee. While it seems unlikely Dunbar will be available for Thursday's preseason matchup with the Seahawks, there's a chance he could see some snaps in the teams' preseason finale come Sept. 1. With that being said, Dunbar will likely be available for Week 1, but could struggle to see significant snaps with the likes of Ezekiel Elliot, Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris all in the running back picture.

Dunbar (knee) could return at some point during training camp, and he still hopes to be ready for Week 1, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Dunbar has reportedly recovered a bit faster than expected, as he's already been spotted doing individual work off to the side at Cowboys training camp. He has reportedly been sprinting without any noticeable hitch/limp, 10 months after suffering a torn ACL and MCL in a Week 4 game. While Ezekiel Elliott figures to handle most of the workload, a healthy Dunbar would be a serious threat to claim some of the passing-down work, as he had 21 receptions in just four appearances last year.

Dunbar (knee) was placed on the PUP list to begin training camp, David Helman of DallasCowboys.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was fully expected, with Dunbar still rehabbing from the torn ACL and MCL he suffered in October. While highly questionable to be ready for Week 1, he might eventually threaten some of Ezekiel Elliott's passing-down workload, having caught 21 passes in just four games last season.
