Jerry Jones says he's had indication that Josh Brent will be reinstated, but didn't say when the  NFL will make the decision known.

Brent served his sentence for vehicular manslaughter and has applied for reinstatement. It's a much tougher NFL these days, but considering he has served his time, he should be granted another chance.

The Cowboys waived defensive back Jemea Thomas.

Thomas would not have helped a poor Cowboys defense anyway, and he will not have a major impact on whatever team he lands on.

Bruce Carter says he's starting strong side LB with Rolando McClain at MLB and Justin Durant weak side. 

The Cowboys defense is patch work at best. Carter is the one carry over and standout in the bunch. They were so desperate for defensive talent that they signed a guy who has retired twice from the NFL. This could be a historically bad season in "Big D."

Anthony Spencer (knee) is not participating in practice Monday and will not play Week 1.

The Cowboys took Anthony Spencer off the active/PUP list on Saturday but he will not be ready for Week 1. The hope for the Cowboys is to get him back on the field before the end of the month. Spencer is coming off microfracture surgery, and there is no way to tell if he'll be effective once he does return to the field. The Cowboys are really grasping at straws for anything they can get on the defensive line.

DE George Selvie sits out practice on Monday.

Selvie banged up his shoulder during Saturday's game, the same shoulder he had surgery on recently. He says that he feels fine and that the shoulder is good, but we'll have to see if he returns to practice soon. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Cowboys signed free-agent FB Nikita Whitlock to the practice squad.

Whitlock will be charged with the task of plowing through the Cowboys defensive line at practice every day. He can be a punishing little fullback at times though how long he can keep it up is in question.

Terrell McClain is back at practice Monday from high ankle sprain he had first week of camp.

McClain managed to hold onto his roster spot despite being sidelined throughout most of camp. He'll serve as depth in the secondary for the time being.

Cowboys have waived S Ahmad Dixon and signed S C.J. Spillman.

Dixon, a seventh round pick in 2014, has been inconsistent throughout the preseason and he just barely made the 53-man roster. The Cowboys see a better fit with Spillman who is a special teams stud.

Cowboys have added WR Tim Benford to their practice squad.

Another addition to a practice squad and another player who will need an injury to have a chance to be positional depth.

Cowboys signed RB Ryan Williams to their practice squad.

Williams will add some depth to the Cowboys backfield but he will not garner enough attention to earn fantasy value as long as Demarco Murray is healthy and effective.
