To make room for Stanley and McQuistan, the Cowboys released guard Shannon Snell and safety Darrell Brooks. The club is expected Saturday morning to place seventh-round pick E.J. Whitley on injured reserve and complete the final terms of Carpenter's deal so he's available for Saturday's 9 a.m. (PDT) practice.
In other roster news, the Cowboys placed left tackle Flozell Adams on the active Physically Unable to Perform list (PUP) following Friday's conditioning run. Adams missed the final 10 games of last season with a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. Like Larry Allen last year, Parcells might be giving Adams a few days off for conditioning before he puts the pads on.
