Akwasi Expected Back On Practice Squad

While the Cowboys did have three former players, including two defensive backs that were claimed off waivers on Sunday, 2010 fourth-round pick Akwasi Owusu-Ansah wasn't one of them.

Because of that, he is likely sticking around on the practice squad. The Cowboys are putting together the eight-man group on Sunday, and as of mid-afternoon, five players who were cut Saturday are expected to stick around.

Owusu-Ansah, who still has practice squad eligibility because he's only played seven games, will likely be joined by CB Mario Butler, FB Shaun Chapas, LB Orie Lemon and WR Teddy Williams and Isaiah Greenhouse.

The Cowboys are also expected to sign rookie wide receiver Andre Holmes, who was recently cut by the Vikings. Holmes did not catch a pass in the preseason with Minnesota, but the former Hillsdale College standout was one of the 30 pre-draft visits to come through Valley Ranch back in early April.

The Cowboys are still trying to finalize the last two spots of the practice squad, hopefully in time for Monday's morning practice at Valley Ranch.
