Things are changing up a bit.

The Cowboys have some roster decisions to make in the aftermath of their second preseason game, a loss to the Cincinnati Bengals last Saturday night.

Unfortunately various members of the Cowboys suffered injuries that call for replacements. Richard Ash injured his knee and was waived, he was replaced by defensive tackle a Caraun Reid.

Jameill Showers tore his ACL and was put on IR, and Xavier Woods has a hamstring issue, so the Cowboys are in sore need of some help at safety. They’re signing Dominick Sanders and working out a former Boise State product, Jeron Johnson, not George Iloka.

We’re getting set for the third and most important preseason game, the all-important dress rehearsal. Dallas will host the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday, and they’ll have a bunch of new bodies when they do so.

The preseason is as much about survival as it is about getting better. Hopefully the Cowboys don’t have to deal with the injury bug too much longer, it’s been horrible even if just for a few days.
