Cowboys Sign Safety, DT; Showers to IR


FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys have returned to practice in Texas, resuming training camp at Ford Center at The Star.

And they'll have some new faces after making some expected roster moves following Saturday's preseason game that saw several injuries.

The safety position was hit hard as the Cowboys lost Xavier Woods for 2-4 weeks with a hamstring strain and Jameill Showers, suffered a knee injury that placed him on injured reserve.

The Cowboys are expected to sign safety Dominick Sanders, who had 16 career interceptions at Georgia. He signed as an undrafted rookie with the Eagles but was waived not long after joining the team this summer.

The team also signed defensive tackle Caraun Reid, a four-year veteran who has 34 games played. Reid (6-2, 304) will take the place of tackle Richard Ash, who suffered a knee injury in the game as well. Unlike Showers, Ash was placed on waived/injured. If he clears waivers, he will revert to the Cowboys' IR.

Reid, a fifth-round pick of the Lions in 2015 out of Princeton, played two full seasons in Detroit before a year with the Chargers. Last year, he returned to the Lions for one game. It's likely he will be able to play the 1-technique in Rod Marinelli's 4-3 scheme.
