Cowboys Put Marcus Spears, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah on IR

Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, and Marcus Spears, had their season ended today.

As was expected, the Cowboys had to make a few personnel moves today. Starting defensive end Marcus Spears has been put on IR, along with rookie Akwasi Owusu-Ansah. Spears tore his calf muscle and was going to miss at least 4-6 weeks, but the Cowboys couldn't wait on his return. They needed help along the defensive line now with Jason Hatcher and Sean Lissemore injured. As Nick Eatman notes, Spears is schedule to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, so he could have possibly played his final down for the Cowboys.

For help along the d-line, Dallas signed Jeremy Clark and Jimmy Saddler-McQueen.

For the second defensive line spot, they had to open up a place on the roster, so they put AOA on IR, too. AOA had mainly been used as the kick return guy, but that spot will be filled by Bryan McCann who was brought up last week.

Short Clark and Saddler-McQueen bios below...

Jeremy Clark - 6' 3", 295 lbs. 4-year vet, Alabama

Clark, a four-year veteran, was released by Arizona on September 3, 2010. He originally signed with the Philadelphia Eagles as a rookie free agent out of Alabama in 2007, where he spent his rookie season on their practice squad. Clark played for the N.Y. Giants in 2008, seeing action in four games and recording four tackles prior to his release on September 5, 2009. In 2009, he spent time on both the Atlanta Falcons and N.Y. Giants practice squads

Jimmy Saddler McQueen - 6' 3", 298 lbs., Rookie, Texas A&M Kingsville

His measurables (6’2 ½, 296, 5.00) are very solid and his production (8.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks) earned him 2nd team All-LSC South honors as a senior. He doesn’t stand out on tape but flashes every once in a while and has measurables that make him worth keeping tabs on.
