IRVING, Texas -The Cowboys made a minor transaction on Thursday morning by re-signing tight end Martin Rucker to the practice squad.
Rucker, who appeared in five games for the team last year, as well as Sunday's season opener, was released from the 53-man roster on Tuesday to make room for cornerback Frank Walker. The same day, wide receiver Laurent Robinson was waived, clearing a space for fullback Tony Fiammetta.
Rucker was pushed off the roster by Martellus Bennett's expected return from his preseason ankle injury this week.
On Tuesday, the Cowboys released linebacker/fullback Isaiah Greenhouse from their practice squad, creating a place for Rucker.
