Per Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, tight end Martellus Bennett was placed on the non football injury list on Saturday.

Bennett has a left ankle injury, which was suffered prior to training camp. It hasn't been determined how Bennett suffered the injury. He was scheduled to have an MRI on Saturday.

Watkins also reports that rookie safety Akwasi Owusu-Ansah was also placed on the non football injury list with a shoulder problem. Also per Watkins, defensive end Lorenzo Washington who was a non drafted rookie free agent from Alabama, was placed on the PUP list.

Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News is reporting that linebacker Keith Brooking has been cleared to participate in training camp practices. 

Lastly, Todd Archer also of the Dallas Morning News is reporting that signing wide receiver and Kardashian boo Miles Austin to a longterm extension is a priority now that all draft picks have been signed.

Stephen Jones reiterated the point today inside the Alamodome but did not have a timeframe on when a deal could be struck. "When we make sure we've got our hands around everything, he's first and foremost," Jones said.
