QB - DAL - Doubtful
Week 8 Outlook
QB Andy Dalton is listed as doubtful for Sunday's Week 8 game against the Eagles.

Dalton suffered a concussion in Sunday’s Week 7 loss to the Washington Football Team. He is in concussion protocol and missed practice for the second consecutive day. Dalton has made progress from his concussion, but will have to be cleared If he has any shot of suiting up in Sunday’s Week 8 contest against the Eagles.

NFL's Ian Rapoport reports that Cowboys QB Andy Dalton is unable to practice on Wednesday due to still being in the concussion protocol.
Dalton took a serious blow to the head on Sunday against Washington and does not appear to be advancing quickly through the NFL's concussion protocol. Dalton has not been good in Dak Prescott's absence, and all Dallas weapons have been trending down in the experts' consensus rankings (ECR). Fantasy managers likely have no choice but to roll out Zeke Elliott and Amari Cooper, but might want to think twice about using WRs CeeDee Lamb or Michael Gallup until their production/usage moving forward can be determined.
Cowboys QB Andy Dalton is in the NFL's concussion protocol on Monday after taking a vicious hit to the head in Sunday's loss to the Washington Football Team.
Anyone who saw the play knew this was coming. While sliding on a QB scramble early in the third quarter, Dalton was hit in the head by LB Jon Bostic. The impact sent the QBs helmet flying. In a scary moment, Dalton writhed slowly on the grass before being attended to by medical personnel and eventually helped off the field and taken to the locker room. Bostic was subsequently ejected from the game. Dalton wasn't lighting up the fantasy scoreboard before the injury, and there is cause for alarm for managers rostering pieces of this offense.
Cowboys QB Andy Dalton took a shot to the head and the cart had to come out for him in the 3rd quarter. Ben DiNucci will go in at quarterback for the Cowboys.
Dalton took a shot to the head as he was scrambling deep in his own territory. He needed help into the locker room and now DiNucci, a rookie out of James Madison, will enter the game.
