Gilbert is expected to get most of the first-team reps in training camp while Dak Prescott (shoulder) is sidelined, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Ben DiNucci and Cooper Rush will also spot in, but Gilbert is the favorite to win the No. 2 job and will get a long look from the coaching staff as a result. There's no timetable yet for when Prescott might get back into action, but the Cowboys don't seem worried about his Week 1 availability. If that changes, the front office might also change its mind on whether Gilbert -- who has only one career NFL start under his belt -- is enough of an insurance policy and bring in veteran competition for QB reps.

The Rams placed Akers (Achilles) on the active/non-football injury list Wednesday, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Akers is a little more than a week removed from suffering a confirmed torn Achilles, which typically would give a player no shot to return this season due to it occurring so close to Week 1. But the Rams have yet to rule him out for the 2021 campaign, per Kevin Modesti of the Los Angeles Daily News, as the team looks more into the injury. Now, the first transaction related to Akers' health doesn't remove him from the 90-man roster. There's no telling if he'll buck medical science and somehow return by the end of the year, but for the time being L.A. will rely on a backfield composed of Darrell Henderson (undisclosed), Xavier Jones, Jake Funk, Raymond Calais and Otis Anderson.

Coach Sean McVay believes Henderson (undisclosed) is an every-down back, noting that durability is the concern, not talent, Jourdan Rodrigue of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: A split workload would be one way to help Henderson stay healthy now that Cam Akers (Achilles) is out for the season, but a three-down role is also possible, especially if the Rams more or less stick with their current group of young, unproven running backs. As a 2019 third-round pick with 197 career touches in 28 games, Henderson is easily the most experienced and pedigreed of the group, which otherwise consists of Xavier Jones, Jake Funk, Raymond Calais and Otis Anderson. McVay said the Rams aren't in the market for a veteran running back, but he could easily change his mind once training camp is underway, especially if Henderson struggles or gets banged up again. He did miss a portion of the offseason program with an undisclosed injury, after finishing last year on IR with a high ankle sprain.

Zuerlein has been placed on the PUP list due to offseason back surgery, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The 33-year-old kicker has a history of back problems, including Dec. 2017 surgery to repair a herniated disk. Even so, the Cowboys head into training camp without another kicker on the roster, giving us a strong hint that they expect Zuerlein to be ready for Week 1. For now, backup punter Hunter Niswander can work with the FG and kickoff units in practice while Zuerlein finishes up his rehab process.

The Cowboys are putting Zuerlein (back) on the PUP list to start training camp, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: While there hasn't been any report of offseason surgery, Zuerlein does have a history of back injuries, including some appearances on the Cowboys' practice reports in the second half of last season. However, the 33-year-old has played 16 games in back-to-back seasons, and he could reclaim his past status as a top-five fantasy kicker if the Cowboys offense picks up where it left off before Dak Prescott (leg) suffered a season-ending injury last year. Zuerlein is the only kicker on the Cowboys' roster, so they'll need to sign someone else for training camp -- or use backup punter Hunter Niswander as a temporary kicker -- if Greg the Leg isn't ready to practice within the next few days.
