ARLINGTON, Texas– The Cowboys will have a new swing tackle for Sunday's game against the Giants. And he's only been with the team less than a week.
Veteran journeyman Tony Hills, signed this week off Miami's practice squad, will be active today, and will be the primary replacement for both tackle spots.
Jermey Parnell will start at right tackle in place of injured Doug Free (foot). The Cowboys obviously felt more comfortable with Hills over tackle Donald Hawkins, one of the seven inactive players.
On Saturday, the Cowboys waived defensive tackle Ken Bishop and filled his spot with linebacker Keith Smith, who is active and will play special teams.
Other inactives for Sunday include:
QB Dustin Vaughan
S Jakar Hamilton
LB Bruce Carter
DT Davon Coleman
DE Jack Crawford
OT Doug Free
OT Donald Hawkins
