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.
The Cowboys worked out DL Caraun Reid earlier today and plan to sign him. He'll replace roster spot of Richard Ash, who injured his knee in the preseason game Saturday vs. Cincinnati. Cowboys also working out a safety and 2 OL right now and another safety tomorrow.— Brandon George (@DMN_George) August 20, 2018
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.
The Cowboys will sign safety Dominick Sanders, who worked out for the team last week in Oxnard, California. Sanders went undrafted after setting the Georgia record for career interceptions with 16. Sanders spent time in the offseason with Philadelphia.... https://t.co/c1BhV1T1gf— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) August 20, 2018

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.
