The Cowboys elevated Sprinkle from the practice squad to the active roster Saturday, Armando Salguero of Outkick.com reports.
Analysis: Sprinkle logged three offensive snaps and 17 special-teams snaps in the season opener but didn't receive a target. The fifth-year tight end will likely stick to a special-teams role in Week 2 against the Chargers.

Sprinkle reverted to the Cowboys' practice squad following Thursday's Week 1 loss to the Buccaneers, per the NFL's transaction log.
Analysis: Sprinkle was brought up from the practice squad for the season opener, and he played mainly on special teams. He was on the field for three offensive snaps while playing 17 snaps on special teams. The 2017 fifth-rounder is unlikely to play a significant role this year as long as Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz remain healthy.
Sep 10, 2021 7:43 PM EST
Sprinkle was called up from the Cowboys' practice squad ahead of Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Sprinkle will work as Dallas' third tight end behind Blake Jarwin and Dalton Schultz with Sean McKeon (ankle) on IR to open the season. The 6-foot-5 Sprinkle spent all four of his previous NFL seasons with Washington, catching 26 balls in 2019 but just eight over his other three campaigns combined.
Sep 9, 2021 12:17 PM EST
The Cowboys signed Sprinkle to the practice squad Wednesday.
Analysis: Sprinkle has logged three straight full 16-game slates after spending the first four years of his career in Washington. Heading into the 2021 regular season, he will operate as an emergency scout team option behind Blake Jarwin, Dalton Schultz and Sean McKeon (ankle).
Sep 1, 2021 1:45 PM EST
The Cowboys cut Sprinkle on Tuesday, Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports.
Analysis: Sprinkle spent his first four seasons in the league with Washington. After a breakout 2019 campaign where he caught 26 passes for 241 yards and a touchdown, he reverted back to a reserve role and only caught one pass in 2020. The 27-year-old landed with Dallas this offseason, but he was unable to make the initial 53-man roster.
Aug 31, 2021 2:51 PM EST
Sprinkle is signing a one-year deal with Dallas, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: The 2017 fifth-round pick caught 34 passes in 59 regular-season games during his four season in Washington. Sprinkle now figures to compete for a depth role in Dallas, where Blake Jarwin (knee), Dalton Schultz and Sean McKeon are the other tight ends on the roster. It remains to be seen if the Cowboys will add to their TE room during the 2021 NFL Draft.
Apr 7, 2021 12:11 PM EST
Sprinkle played all 16 games for Washington in 2022, catching one pass for six yards on three targets.
Analysis: Sprinkle technically made six starts but never played more than 28 snaps in a game. It was a quiet finish to his rookie contract, with the 2017 fifth-round pick mostly serving as a blocker behind three-down TE Logan Thomas. If Sprinkle does return to Washington, it'll be in a depth role with minimal expectations for receiving production.
Jan 11, 2021 10:06 AM EST
Sprinkle caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's 25-3 win over the Cowboys.
Analysis: Sprinkle tied his season-high with 28 offensive snaps, and he finally made his first catch of the year. Washington likely opted for more two tight-end sets because the wide receiver corps has been ravaged by injuries, and the Football Team could come back from the Week 8 bye healthier than before, which would cut into Sprinkle's workload once again.
Oct 27, 2020 2:13 PM EST
Sprinkle should have a spot on Washington's regular-season roster, according to Ben Standig of The Athletic.
Analysis: The team views Sprinkle as a reliable blocker, which should be enough to secure a job. Meanwhile, Logan Thomas is the favorite to see targets at tight end, regardless of whether he's technically the starter or not. Sprinkle had only 26 catches on 600 offensive snaps last year, starting 13 of 16 games for an injury-riddled Washington squad.
Sep 2, 2020 8:00 AM EST
Sprinkle finished 2019 with 26 catches for 241 yards and a touchdown on 40 targets in 16 games.
Analysis: Sprinkle made 13 starts and played at least 64 percent of offensive snaps in each of Washington's final 11 games. His sizable role never translated to useful fantasy production, with the 25-year-old tight end catching two or fewer passes in every game until Week 17. Sprinkle should be back to compete for a role with Washington in 2020, but the team likely will aim for an upgrade if Vernon Davis (concussion) and Jordan Reed (concussion) aren't brought back. Davis is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent and may be considering retirement, while Reed could be a cap casualty. Sprinkle, a 2017 fifth-round pick, will be entering the final season of his rookie contract.
Jan 1, 2020 6:49 AM EST
Sprinkle caught two of three targets for 14 yards during Sunday's 41-35, overtime loss to the Giants.
Analysis: The 25-year-old once again worked as the team's No. 1 tight end Week 16, but it was Hale Hentges who had the touchdown reception Sunday. Sprinkle has 12 starts this season and 23 receptions for 223 yards and one touchdown.
Dec 23, 2019 10:25 AM EST
Sprinkle caught both targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Redskins.
Analysis: Sprinkle continues to work as the No. 1 tight end, logging 43 of a possible 53 offensive snaps (81 percent). The third-year pro still hasn't exceeded two receptions or 36 receiving yards over 14 games this year while finding the paydirt just once.
Dec 16, 2019 12:52 PM EST
Sprinkle wasn't targeted during Sunday's 20-15 loss in Green Bay.
Analysis: Sprinkle was solidly involved last week with two catches on four targets for 36 yards, but he was an afterthought in the passing game Week 14 despite 75 percent of offensive snaps. The 25-year-old has started 10 games this season but has limited fantasy value with 19 catches for 196 yards and one touchdown.
Dec 9, 2019 1:32 PM EST
Sprinkle caught two of four targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 29-21 win over Carolina.
Analysis: The yardage was a career high, breaking a streak of 11 consecutive games in which Sprinkle caught either one or two passes for no more than 24 yards. His 77 percent snap share was right in the usual range, so it's not as if the improvement was sparked by a role change. Sprinkle doesn't offer much fantasy appeal, but he appears locked in as the starting tight end for the rest of the season, including Week 14 at Green Bay.
Dec 2, 2019 5:41 AM EST
Sprinkle caught one of two targets for four yards in Sunday's 19-16 win over the Lions.
Analysis: Sprinkle has caught either one or two passes in each of Washington's 11 games this season, never going beyond 24 yards in any one contest. His role as the No. 1 tight end doesn't mean much for fantasy purposes, even with both Jordan Reed (concussion) and Vernon Davis (concussion) on injured reserve. Washington travels to Carolina for Week 13.
Nov 24, 2019 8:20 PM EST
Sprinkle caught two of three targets for 16 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: It was shaping into another uneventful start for Sprinkle heading into the final minute of the game when Dwayne Haskins took the play action fake and lobbed a one-yard touchdown pass to a leaking Sprinkle for his first touchdown of the year. Despite consistent starts in place of Vernon Davis (concussion), Sprinkle has yet to crack 25 yards in a game this season and has just three red-zone targets in 2019. He's a big risk, but an optimist might look at Sunday's matchup against Detroit's 30th-ranked pass defense as an opportunity for Haskins, and the Washington offense overall, to take a step forward.
Nov 19, 2019 3:46 PM EST
Sprinkle is expected to serve as the Redskins' starting tight end Sunday against the 49ers while Vernon Davis (concussion) remains out.
Analysis: While Davis was withheld from action the previous two games, Sprinkle operated as Washington's clear No. 1 tight end, playing 70.4 percent of the offensive snaps during that span. The ample playing time didn't translate to much production, however, as Sprinkle drew only six targets, catching four of them for 41 yards. He'll likely remain a low-end fantasy option at the position for the duration of his run as a starter.
Oct 18, 2019 12:12 PM EST
Sprinkle caught two of three targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 17-16 win over Miami.
Analysis: Sprinkle's largest contribution came in the closing minutes of the third quarter when, facing third down, Case Keenum found him across the middle and the Arkansas product barreled ahead for a gain of 19. The yardage from that one catch was more than any other Washington player, outside of Terry McLaurin, gained during the entire game. Sprinkle continues to get a healthy dose of snaps with Jordan Reed on injured reserve and Vernon Davis battling a concussion. If Sprinkle gets the start in Week 7, it'll be against a very good 49ers pass defense.
Oct 13, 2019 3:01 PM EST
Sprinkle will be the Redskins' No. 1 tight end Sunday at Miami, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Sprinkle has picked up a fair share of weekly work this season, helped by concussions to both Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis. Reed was placed on IR on Saturday, while Davis is missing yet another game Week 6. In Davis' case, he made some headway through the concussion protocol with limited practices Thursday and Friday, but he still must gain clearance from an independent neurologist to compete with Sprinkle for snaps. On Sunday, Jerome Cunningham and perhaps Hale Hentges will be the team's other available tight ends.
