Dallas Cowboys Practice Squad Updates: Who Returned and Who Didn’t?

Waiver wire claims went through on Wednesday, who did the Dallas Cowboys pick up to make up their 2023 practice squad?

With NFL cutdown day officially behind us, the road is paved for teams to establish their practice squads. Waiver wire claims went through at noon ET on Wednesday, and the Dallas Cowboys added almost all of their 16 practice squad spots.

Before teams can sign players to their 16-man practice squad, the players who got cut on Tuesday and have less than four accrued seasons go through waivers. This is when other teams can claim players. But if those players aren’t claimed, they can sign to a practice squad.

Which Dallas Cowboys Players Made the Practice Squad?


Sean McKeon (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Sean McKeon was one of the most surprising roster cuts, with the team’s decision to keep three running backs on the final roster. But McKeon being on the practice squad gives him an excellent chance to be elevated at some point during the regular season.

Princeton Fant (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Princeton Fant was an underrated player throughout training camp and preseason. He also showed his value in the red zone at camp and had some nice grabs.

Malik Davis (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Malik Davis adds depth to the running back room, even if the roster already has four backs. If elevated from the practice squad, he can also add a blocking and special teams element.

Jalen Moreno-Cropper (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Jalen Moreno-Cropper was a consistent standout during training camp and showed potential to take off in the wide receiver room with his speed and ability to create separation.

Tyron Johnson (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Tyron Johnson had a few standout moments in training camp and can continue developing in the wide receiver room.

Earl Bostick (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Earl Bostick gives the team much-needed depth on the offensive line as a possible swing tackle if needed.

Brock Hoffman (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Brock Hoffman showed flexibility throughout training camp and preseason with his ability to work in the center and on the right side of the line.

Chuma Edoga (SOURCE: Dallas Morning News)

Chuma Edoga was a short-term release.

Alex Taylor-Prioleau (SOURCE: Dallas Morning News)

Alex Taylor-Prioleau adds depth to the offensive line and is a stable blocking threat.

Malik Jefferson (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Malik Jefferson adds depth to the team’s linebacker position.

Sheldrick Redwine (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Sheldrick Redwine had momentum all of training camp and preseason. He can hit well and plays with physicality.

Tyrus Wheat (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Tyrus Wheat is a versatile threat that has the potential to grow within Dan Quinn’s scheme.

Durrell Johnson (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Durrell Johnson can develop with the defensive line’s exterior. He is young and physical, giving him time to learn even more within the practice squad.

Josh Butler (SOURCE: Dallas Cowboys)

Josh Butler played a fantastic game in the team’s final preseason game against the Las Vegas Raiders. He can add depth to a versatile safety room and grow to be a significant part of it eventually.

Special Teams
