Lance Lenoir: Let go by Dallas

Lenoir (knee) was waived by the Cowboys on Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The 25-year-old appeared in seven games for Dallas in 2018, but he was waived/injured with a knee issue in August and spent the season on injured reserve after clearing waivers. It's unclear if Lenoir is fully recovered from the injury.

Lance Lenoir: Lands on IR

Lenoir (knee) reverted to the Cowboys' IR after clearing waivers Friday, according to the NFL's official transaction log.

Analysis: The specifics of Lenoir's injury are still unclear. If he remains with the Cowboys his 2019 season will be over, but he could potentially play for another team if he's released from IR or reaches an injury settlement with Dallas.

Lance Lenoir: Waived/injured by Cowboys

Lenoir (knee) was placed on the waived/injured list by Dallas on Wednesday, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: The Western Illinois product had been battling a knee injury that forced him to miss practice time, and will hit waivers. Lenoir could be an intriguing option to teams looking to bolster depth, considering he saw eight offensive snaps with Dallas in his career. If he goes unclaimed, Lenoir will revert to injured reserve, while staying on the Cowboys' roster.

Lance Lenoir: No practice Thursday

Lenoir did not practice Thursday due to a knee injury, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Lenoir is competing for a depth role with the Cowboy and would be well served to get healthy and resume practicing as soon as possible. The third-year pro, who played eight offensive snaps with Dallas last season but was not targeted, will likely need to impress on special teams to carve out an end-of-roster role.

Lance Lenoir: Promoted to active roster

Lenoir was promoted to the Cowboys' active roster Tuesday, Calvin Watkins of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Lenoir's promotion from the practice squad comes on the heels of Allen Hurns' (ankle) move to injured reserve. Lenoir will likely be last on Dallas' receiver depth chart, but with Cole Beasley (ankle), Tavon Austin (groin), and Noah Brown (illness) all missing practice time, there's a chance he could move up the pecking order slightly come Saturday's divisional-round game against the Rams.

Lance Lenoir: Candidate for promotion

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Lenoir is a candidate to be promoted from the practice squad to the active roster with Allen Hurns (ankle) injured, Todd Archer of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Cowboys are moving on in the playoffs, but Hurns' season is over after the receiver sustained a severe ankle injury during Saturday's wild-card game against Seattle. While Lenoir appears to be the next man up, it's unlikely he'd earn many targets Saturday against the Rams while serving as nothing more than a possible No. 5 or 6 receiver on the depth chart.

Lance Lenoir: Active Sunday

Lance Lenoir: Feeling ill

Lenoir didn't practice Friday due to an illness and is questionable for Sunday's game versus the Colts, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Analysis: Lenoir has played in five games this year but totaled just six offensive snaps and no receptions. If he sits out, the Cowboys will have five other healthy wideouts, not including Tavon Austin (groin) who is listed as questionable.

Lance Lenoir: Promoted from practice squad

Lenoir has been activated to the Cowboys' active roster from the practice squad, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Analysis: Lenoir was activated to the active roster last December, but only played five snaps on special teams and was placed on the practice squad again. The 23-year-old will fill one of the two vacancies left on the roster after fellow wide receiver Deonte Thompson and defensive back Treston Decoud were released.
