Cowboys cut QB McGee, claim TE off waivers
SEP 01, 2012 4:14p ET
The moves were announced Saturday as the Cowboys started practice four days before their season opener at the New York Giants.
Dallas also had a full eight-man practice squad in place and on the field. That group included rookie receiver Danny Coale, the injury-hampered fifth-round pick who was left off the 53-man roster at Friday's deadline.
With seven-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten still questionable while recovering from a lacerated spleen, Cochart provides some extra depth at that position. Cochart started three games as a rookie last season.
