Morning skate update: Stars are lean and mean and ready to take on last year’s ghosts

The Stars had an optional morning skate, but everyone participated. It’s just that a few guys left after about 10 minutes. As such, they didn’t skate lines and didn’t even practice the power play _ things they did in previous …

The future of Sean Lee is at weakside linebacker

IRVING, Texas -- Outside of talking about the status of quarterback Tony Romo, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones discussed a potential position change for one of his best players: Sean Lee.  Jones, speaking to 105.3 The Fan on Friday said Lee, the Cowboys' starting middle linebacker, who is out for the season with a torn ACL, could change positions. Jones said Lee could move to weakside linebacker, a spot where Justin Durant, who is now out for the season with a torn biceps muscle, played.

Prediction: Dallas Cowboys to drop second straight

IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys' 6-2 start was better than just about anybody could have imagined, but the loss to the Washington Redskins on Monday night in overtime quelled some of those good feelings. Plus it is not clear whether Tony Romo will play against the Arizona Cardinals because of a back injury. Even if he does play, can he move around well enough to avoid the pressure-happy Arizona defense after the Redskins were able to put him under constant pressure?

Cowboys prepping for Cardinals' blitzing

IRVING, Texas – One game does not make a trend, but the Dallas Cowboys know the Arizona Cardinals will try to emulate what the Washington Redskins did against them Monday. Passing game coordinator Scott Linehan, however, did not like the suggestion that the Cowboys were exposed by Washington. The Cowboys were able to beat the St. Louis Rams and New Orleans Saints when they brought pressure. “We’ve defeated the blitz all year,” Linehan said.

Elvis Andrus slim down, focuses on 2015

There was something different about Elvis Andrus's frame when he was standing with a bunch of kids at a charity event this week. Indeed, the Texas Rangers' starting shortstop is thinner. In 2009, his rookie season, Andrus weighed 185 pounds. But last season, his sixth, he reached 205. Now he wants to get down to about 190. “I think that’s the way I’m going to feel great and help me,” he said. Last season didn’t help Andrus.

Carlisle likes 'everything' about Parsons

DALLAS -- It took five quarters, but the Chandler Parsons the Dallas Mavericks paid for finally made a regular-season appearance. Parsons stunk it up in the season-opening loss in San Antonio and started slow in the home opener against the Utah Jazz. After misfiring on 14 of his first 17 shots of the season, Parsons settled into a nice groove Thursday night. Actually, Parsons didn't settle for anything during the Mavs' 120-102 blowout win. He attacked his way to 21 points on 8-of-16 shooting -- despite a 1-of-7 start -- to go with seven rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes.

Mackenzy Bernadeau prepares to start

IRVING, Texas -- Mackenzy Bernadeau has been here before. The Dallas Cowboys guard has started 47 games in his NFL career and might get another one Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Starting left guard Ronald Leary is nursing a pulled groin and his status is uncertain, so that means, coach Jason Garrett may turn to a veteran who played in overtime in last week's loss to Washington when Leary was injured. "It's always exciting to get a chance to play and I don't consider this as me taking Ron's spot," Leary said.

Dustin Vaughan excited if role changes Sunday

IRVING, Texas -- If Tony Romo does not play Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, Dustin Vaughan will be the Dallas Cowboys’ backup quarterback. A year ago he was playing at West Texas A&M, throwing 45 touchdown passes. “I think it just becomes more real,” Vaughan said. “I don’t think it adds any type of nervousness or anxiety, because I think every single week you’re preparing for it. With that, I think just being able to handle it when it comes down to it, and you know hopefully Brandon [Weeden] goes through and has a great game, but my job is to be ready if that time comes.
