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.
