The 2023 Dallas Cowboys cuts tracker is here. The Cowboys must reduce the roster to 53 men by Tuesday’s 4 p.m. deadline. Who will take the second running back spot? Will the team keep four tight ends? Is linebacker depth any concern?
Dallas Cowboys Cuts: A First Look at 53-Man Roster
When a player has been cut, we will cross his name off the list with a strikethrough line.
By the roster deadline, the Cowboys must be down to 53 players.
Players who appear on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) or Non-football Injury (NFI) lists don’t count toward the final 53-man roster.
If a player remains on the PUP list, they will not be eligible to return until after the team’s fourth regular-season game. In the Cowboys’ case, they play the New England Patriots during Week 4 of the regular season.
Players who are placed on Injured Reserve (IR) before the final cut day can’t return during the season.
Teams are allowed to have 16 members on the practice squad. Ten of those players can’t have more than two accrued NFL seasons. The remaining six don’t have any restrictions.

Dallas Cowboys Cuts Analysis
- After Dallas traded with the San Francisco 49ers for QB Trey Lance, the Cowboys informed Will Grier that he would not be making the final roster, per multiple reports.
- Tight end Sean McKeon was a surprising decision, as he had the most experience within the young room. However, McKeon had one of his best off-seasons, telling PFN exclusively that he had switched up his offseason training. If he clears waivers, he would be a great addition to the practice squad.
- The Dallas Cowboys decided to keep undrafted free agent fullback Hunter Luepke on the roster.
- Defensive tackle Quinton Bohanna was the Dallas Cowboys’ sixth-round draft pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Bohanna. In 2022, Bohanna had 19 total tackles, one of which was a tackle for loss.
- The Dallas Cowboys have traded cornerback Kelvin Joseph in exchange for cornerback Dolphins Noah Igbinoghene, per ESPN. During training camp, Mike McCarthy said Joseph has been playing his “best stretch” of football since he was named head coach in 2020, praising him specifically for Joseph’s work in the nickel position.
