Cowboys Make Moves to Reach 75-Man Roster

    The Cowboys have satisfied the NFL's 75-man roster limit, releasing some players and moving others to lists. Here is a summary courtesy of one of the team's staff writers:

    WR Rodney Smith
    WR Richard Mullaney
    G Mike McQueen
    G Dan Buchholz
    CB Arjen Colquhoun (injured)
    LB Henoc Muamba (injured)

    – QB moved to 
    – TE moved to Reserve/PUP
    – LB moved to Reserve/NFI

    There are no surprises here. Nobody expected Kellen Moore to be on the active roster after his lower leg fracture. He could, of course, be brought off IR at some point this season if Dallas wants to use their one-time exemption on him.

    The PUP and NFI designations for James Hanna and Jaylon Smith mean that they will miss at least first six weeks of the year. This was expected for Smith, the rookie , back when he was drafted. He may not be able to play at all in 2016.

    Hanna came to camp with a knee injury and ended up having a surgery. He will likely return at some point.

    As for the waived players, the only surprise might be Rodney Smith. He had a strong showing in last Thursday's game but apparently his full body of work hasn't been enough to impress.

    The final cuts from 75 to the final are by 4:00 PM EDT this Saturday.  Dallas will play their last preseason game this Thursday night against the .
