The Dallas Cowboys' roster continues to take shape as we're now less than a month away from Dallas' first regular season contest against the New York Jets on September 11. On Tuesday, the Cowboys released linebacker Alex Daniels and cornerback Ross Weaver, according to Calvin Watkins.
Both Weaver and Daniels were nursing injuries. Per Watkins:
Daniels (ankle) and Weaver (whiplash) were both trying to recover from injuries suffered during training camp. The Cowboys currently have 85 players on their roster.
Here are the linebackers on the roster: Isaiah Greenhouse, Sean Lee, Keith Brooking, Bruce Carter, Kenwin Cummings, Mike Balogun, Bradie James, Victor Butler, Orie Lemon, Brandon Williams, Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware.
Here are the cornerbacks: Alan Ball, Mike Jenkins, Josh Thomas, Mario Butler, Chris Randle, Orlando Scandrick, Bryan McCann and Terence Newman.
Both Weaver and Daniels are 24 years old as well. Neither were expected to contribute much, if anything, to the Cowboys in 2011.
