Donovan Wilson Returns From Injured Reserve, DT Justin Hamilton Signed to Practice Squad

The has found its mojo again. Against the and Washington Football Team over the last two weeks, they have forced eight turnovers and allowed just 18.5 points per game on their way to back-to-back victories.

More reinforcements are on the way just ahead of the Cowboys' showdown with the on Sunday as was designated to return from on Wednesday after dealing with a chest/shoulder injury, and Defensive was signed to the .

Wilson's 21-day practice window is now in effect meaning he could see the field against the Giants but that'll depend, obviously, on the progress made before Sunday.

Hamilton has had a rollercoaster of a season in Dallas. He was released on August 31 and was signed to the practice squad the next day.

Getting people back just in time to finish strong and make a run at the SB……. I hope!!


. Oh ED! I’ve been a fan since ‘71 and unfortunately since the Jerry Jones era (post jimmy Johnson) ; I no longer allow myself to be crushed and let down every year. Although substantial talent on this team; there is no leadership and no accountability for players. They got destroyed last week in the second half by there WFT second stringers and Dak looked liked a subpar backup qb at best. Zeke is DONE and has been for years and the O line gets way too much credit now for what they used to be. So, just to help ease the pain; prepare yourself; you will NEVER see a super bowl run while Jerry sits in his ivory tower and we continue to be way over cap every year by substantially over paying average players. Start by praying for 1 playoff win. That’s a reasonable goal.


Where’s our big rookie in the equation? Hamilton is just a practice player
