The Cowboys’ wide receiver Dennis Houston has been waived from the roster. The undrafted rookie will be available for pickup off waivers by the other 31 teams in the league. Houston had 60 offensive plays in the first week and two catches for a total of 16 yards.
During the contest between the Cincinnati Bengals and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he caught two catches for a total of 16 yards. Undrafted and open WR Before being eliminated on Tuesday, Houston took part in the first two games. The modification frees up a spot on the 53-man roster, which might open the door for several deals. Potential candidates for promotion from the practice squad to the 53 are the lineman Jason Peters, the third quarterback Will Grier, and the quarterback Sean McKeon. After being active the previous week, Grier still has two elevations left.
WR Michael Gallup (knee) and WR Jalen Tolbertto can now play against the Giants on Monday as Houston is no longer an option. Both players were rather inactive during the first two weeks. Gallup might make his season debut as early as Monday night against the New York Giants, depending on how the practice week unfolds. Although he hasn’t played much thus far, the Cowboys intend to keep putting him in more games.
The move increases the Cowboys’ roster flexibility for the upcoming week. Even if the team obtains the customary two practice elevations each week, there is now a roster spot available in case another player needs to be added before the Giants game. Houston will be eligible to join the practice squad if he clears waivers.
