Cowboys place LB Justin Durant on injured reserve with torn biceps

Wednesday October 29th, 2014

The Dallas Cowboys placed linebacker Justin Durant on injured reserve Wednesday, the team announced.

Durant sustained a torn biceps during Monday's loss to the Washington Redskins. The 29-year-old was Dallas' leading tackler through eight games with 49, and also had four pass defenses, an interception and two forced fumbles.  

The Cowboys also announced that they signed veteran linebacker Tim Dobbins

Tony Romo (back) day-to-day, status vs. Cardinals uncertain

Dobbins was drafted by the San Diego Chargers in the fifth round in 2006 and has appeared in 110 career games, making 22 starts. The 31-year-old appeared in three games for the Houston Texans in 2013, but he has not made an NFL start since the 2012 season. 

Dallas (6-2) will host the Arizona Cardinals (6-1) on Sunday before traveling to London to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 9.
