Cowboys release TE Colin Cochart

IRVING, Texas (AP) — Tight end Colin Cochart has been released by the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys announced the move Tuesday, 10 days after they had claimed Cochart off waivers from Cincinnati.

Dallas got Cochart when there were still questions about the health of seven-time Pro Bowl tight end Jason Witten. But Witten, who lacerated his spleen Aug. 13, was back and started in the regular-season opener last Wednesday.

Cochart had started three games as a rookie last season for the Bengals.
