Darren McFadden is eligible to return from the non-football injury list, but the Dallas Cowboys will take at least another week before deciding whether to activate him or not.
With only one practice this week because of Sunday's bye, it does not make sense to start McFadden's three-week practice window until next week.
McFadden said his surgically-repaired right elbow is "feeling great," although he does not have full range of motion that is "good enough for me to play with. Everything is good with it. Just a little small hitch in it, but I don't think it's anything that's going to affect me."

Darren McFadden was sort of reborn after coming over from the Raiders to Dallas last season. He started 10 games and averaged 4.7 yard per carry, his highest average since 2011. He surpassed the 1,000 yard mark for the second time in his career and he caught 40 passes as well. So why no buzz after putting up decent numbers last year...?
Because McFadden is not very likely to see the football more than four or five times a game. Dallas went out and drafted Ezekiel Elliot to be their franchise running back, which leaves McFadden as a back without playing time.
2016 Bottom Line
McFadden is still the Cowboys No. 2 running back and there is still an outside chance Elliot is not what he appears. If that case, McFadden could get another chance, but that's a big if. For now, McFadden has been going around the 16th round area (The third string back Alfred Morris is going ahead of him in drafts). He is a bit risky, but still could find a way to get on the field and get some touches.
