      Douglas (foot) is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

      Analysis: Douglas missed Wednesday's practice, but he practiced Thursday and Friday, including a full practice for the latter day. If Julio Jones (hip, questionable) sits out again, Douglas should get a healthy target count against the Saints.

      White (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against New Orleans.

      Analysis: White missed Wednesday's practice, but that was evidently just for rest purposes. He practiced Thursday and Friday, logging a full practice Friday. He's a strong fantasy wideout this week with Julio Jones (hip) highly questionable after sitting out all of this week's practices.

      Murray (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Indianapolis, ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer reports.

      Analysis: Despite the questionable tag, Murray is expected to start Sunday's game. With that said, it's reasonable to suspect that Murray won't have much of a presence in the Dallas passing game due to the broken bone in his hand. If Murray loses passing down snaps, Lance Dunbar would be the candidate to pick up the slack. While Dunbar is the receiving specialist behind Murray, Joseph Randle is likely the Dallas runner who would receive most of the carries if Murray surprisingly sits out.
