OXNARD, Calif. – The Cowboys made several roster moves to address their injury concerns on Monday afternoon.
Most notable is the news that Maliek Collins passed a physical and has been removed from the Physically Unable to Perform list. That means Collins is technically cleared to practice – although it’s doubtful he will do so for the time being. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Sunday that Collins is making good progress in his return from a foot injury, but he is still not quite ready for practice.
The team also added two players to help cope with injury concerns on the roster. They signed workout wide receiver Darren Carrington, helping to fill out their receiver depth chart. Rookie wide out Marchie Murdock was waived/injured after suffering a foot injury during the preseason game against San Francisco.
Carrington comes to the roster after finishing his college career at Utah, where he recorded 66 catches for 918 yards and six touchdowns.
On top of that, offensive lineman Jacob Alsadek has also been added to the roster, while veteran guard Marcus Martin has been moved to injured reserve. Martin injured his toe in the game against the 49ers and will require season-ending surgery. Alsadek signed undrafted with Green Bay in the spring, but he was released toward the end of the Packers’ offseason program.
