Beasley caught two of three targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss to the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

He had one big gain wiped out by a Chaz Green holding penalty, but otherwise Beasley was quiet only one week after a two-TD performance. The slippery slot receiver has yet to haul in more than 33 yards in a game this season, making him a very risky fantasy option next week against the Eagles.

Beasley caught four of six targets for 24 yards and a pair of touchdowns during Sunday's 28-17 win over the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley averaged an underwhelming six yards per reception, but he scored a pair of short touchdowns to help his team pull off the impressive home win. He was forced to battle through the league's concussion protocol throughout the week, but the fact that he finished third on the team in targets indicates he's progressed past the head injury completely. Furthermore, he could experience a spike in fantasy value next week against the Eagles if one or both of Dez Bryant (ankle) and Terrance Williams are forced to miss out after suffering injuries Sunday.

Beasley (concussion) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was a full participant in practice by the end of the week and was removed from the concussion protocol Friday, eliminating any doubt that he would be available for Week 9. The slot receiver should be in store for his usual 25 to 40 snaps Sunday, but aside from a two-touchdown Week 5 performance against the Packers, Beasley hasn't seen enough red-zone looks or volume between the 20-yard lines to offer much appeal in shallower fantasy settings.

Beasley (concussion) will suit up Sunday against the Chiefs, a source informed Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley revealed Friday that he cleared the concussion protocol and was able to turn in a full practice that same day, so there was never much concern about his availability for the weekend, despite the Cowboys designating him as questionable for the contest. He'll assume his usual duties as the Cowboys' top slot man, a role that hasn't yielded much volume this season. Beasley has been targeted no more than eight times in any of his seven games on the campaign and has a season high of 33 receiving yards.

Beasley (concussion) was a full practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley already said he cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's game. The Cowboys presumably are just listing him as questionable in case his concussion symptoms resurface this weekend. Beasley has yet to reach 35 receiving yards in a game this season, but Sunday presents his most favorable matchup to date.

Beasley said Friday that he cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and will play in Sunday's game against the Chiefs, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was held out of practice Wednesday and limited Thursday, but it sounds as if he returned to full participation Friday. Barring a late setback, he'll fill his usual role as the Cowboys' slot receiver in three-wide formations, facing a Kansas City defense that's been gashed by wideouts all season. The favorable matchup by no means ensures results, considering Beasley has fallen shy of 35 receiving yards every week this season.

Beasley (concussion) was limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Although Beasley elevated from no activity Wednesday to some one day later, he remains firmly embedded in the concussion protocol. Players can log full practices and still be subject to the protocol, so Beasley may still be 1-to-2 phases from receiving medical clearance. Until there's mention of a visit to an independent neurologist, Beasley will be in real danger of missing his first game since the 2013 season.

Beasley (concussion) will return to practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear if Beasley will be a full or limited participant in the session, but after failing to practice in any capacity Wednesday, it sounds as though he's advanced to the next phase of the concussion protocol. Beasley will still need to receive clearance from an independent neurologist before being removed from the protocol, but if that happens within the next few days, he should be available for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Beasley (concussion) won't practice Wednesday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Beasley was placed in the concussion protocol following his early departure from Sunday's win over the Redskins and hasn't progressed to a stage where he's able to log any on-field activity. He'll have two more days to show improvement and potentially take part in practice, but the volatile nature of recovery timetables for concussions makes it difficult to predict if Beasley will be ready to roll by the time the Week 9 matchup with the Chiefs arrives.

Beasley (concussion) is considered day-to-day, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

This is the typical outlook for concussions, given the unpredictable nature of recovery. Beasley suffered the injury in Sunday's 33-19 win over the Redskins, leaving Ryan Switzer as the Cowboys' slot receiver for most of the second half. Beasley finished with less than 25 yards for a fifth straight game.
