Cowboys waive injured DE Jenkins, put CB Thomas on IR
FRISCO, Texas (AP) The Dallas Cowboys have waived defensive end Shaneil Jenkins, cornerback Jeremiah McKinnon and linebacker James Morris on injury settlements and placed cornerback Josh Thomas on season-ending injured reserve.
Jenkins had a sack in each of the first two preseason games before injuring a knee. He joined Dallas in training camp after getting released by Denver.
Thomas, a five-year veteran who started his career in Carolina, returned to the Cowboys on a one-year contract to compete for a backup job, but injured a thumb in the preseason.
The moves on Monday were the first step in getting the roster down to 75 by Tuesday.
