Roster construction is always happening for the Cowboys.
The Dallas Cowboys are one week into their season but there are some questions with the state of their practice squad. What questions? Well, it’s hard to know.
On Tuesday, the Cowboys released running back Jordan Chunn from the 53-man roster. Shortly after Jason Garrett’s presser today, it was reported that the team signed Darius Jackson, who’s bounced to and from the Cowboys recently, to their practice squad. There was thought to be an open roster spot on the practice squad because it had previously been reported that Chris Covington would be promoted to the 53-man roster.
It was after that when things got confusing
Prior to lunch time on Wednesday it seemed like Chris Covington would take Jordan Chunn’s spot and that Darius Jackson was then going to take Covington’s. That’s simple enough; however, Jason Garrett also announced on Wednesday that wide receiver Tavon Austin won’t practice today due to concussion symptoms that really came on after the team’s win on Sunday against the New York Giants.
