Cowboys 2018 practice squad includes WR Lance Lenoir, RB Darius Jackson, DE Charles Tapper

The Cowboys practice squad is almost complete.

The Dallas Cowboys have signed eight players to their 2018 practice squad, leaving two spots still open.

Some of the players were expected, but some of them are surprises.

DE Charles Tapper - He’s finally healthy, but the numbers crunch at defensive end knocked him down to the practice squad. Still, his career with the Cowboys continues on.

RB Darius Jackson - A fan-favorite, D-Jax makes his return to Dallas after he was released a few years ago to make room for Darren McFadden. Jackson out-played Bo Scarbrough in preseason to get the call for the practice squad.

RB Jordan Chunn - This is one is a surprise. Most thought that if another running back was on the practice squad it would be Bo Scarbrough, but Chunn sneaks in. He showed some skill in the final game against Houston.

WR Lance Lenoir - He made a serious push to make the 53-man roster, but has to settle for another round on the practice squad. You’d have to think he’s first in line if the Cowboys need a call-up at receiver this year.

WR Dres Anderson - The wide receiver was signed late in the process, but made the most of his opportunities by grabbing a practice squad spot.

CB Donovan Olumba - He was a presence in the last preseason game, that plus his work at training camp caught the eye of Kris Richard.

OT Jake Campos - He was given some good grades by Pro Football Focus for his work in the preseason, that should’ve tipped us off.

LB Kyle Queiro - Definitely a surprise as not many had him on their radar heading into these cuts. He did enough for the Cowboys to want to develop him.

There are still two more spots available.
