The Dallas Cowboys have decided to shake up their receiving corps in advance of their Sunday night game with the Philadelphia Eagles. In reports coming out today, the Cowboys will release veteran wide receiver Deonte Thompson along with secondary player Treston Decoud to make room for some call ups.

The Cowboys will activate Noah Brown to the 53-man roster and call up Lance Lenoir from the practice squad. Brown opened the season on injured reserve because of a hamstring injury suffered early in training camp. He returned to practice last week.... https://t.co/tfoOdYBhVW— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) November 9, 2018
Dallas is bringing back Noah Brown from injured reserve after he has practiced the past couple of weeks. Brown was bothered by a hamstring injury but appears to be ready to go. Brown is a very solid blocker from the receiver position, a skill that greatly helps in the run game. Ezekiel Elliot is smiling.
Fan favorite Lance Lenoir may finally get a chance to show what he can do. He probably won’t see a lot of action immediately, but he is finally going to get some snaps this year. After impressing in training camp and preseason games, fans have been waiting for the moment he got the call to the 53-man roster. It looks like that moment has arrived.
Not 100% official, but the Cowboys are shaking up their WR corps again. Noah Brown is being activated from IR ahead of this trip to Philly, and Lance Lenoir is coming up from the practice squad. DB Treston Decoud & WR Deonte Thompson are the cuts #cowboyswire— David Helman (@HelmanDC) November 9, 2018
It should become official soon.
