The Cowboys enjoyed a day off from training camp practice on Wednesday, but a few news and notes surfaced from Oxnard.
The Cowboys made a roster move, signing defensive end Toby Jackson, who was one of four players to work out for the club on Tuesday. Jackson was not drafted in the 2013 Supplemental Draft. He was out of football last year after just one season at Central Florida.
To make room for Jackson, the Cowboys waived defensive tackle Ikponmwosa Igbinoson, who had been out since the first few days of camp with a foot injury. Since Igbinoson was in walking boot for the last week, the Cowboys will likely give him an injury settlement in the near future.
On the other side of the ball, guard Kevin Kowalski is expected to miss 2-3 weeks with a knee injury he suffered late in Tuesday's practice. Kowalski has some soreness behind his kneecap and the Cowboys are hoping a few weeks of rest will be enough to let it heal. The club is hopeful he won't need a scope and can return at some in the preseason.
Kowalski had been running with the first-team offense until Nate Livings returned earlier this week. The third-year pro from Toledo has been just a backup in his career, but his versatility is an asset, considering his ability to play guard and tackle.
