It’s another week of the 2018 Dallas Cowboys season, and there’s another batch of roster moves on this particular Tuesday. Let’s get caught up.
Things got started when we found out that practice squad defensive lineman Adolphus Washington was poached by the Cincinnati Bengals. How dare they!

This wasn’t the only bit of Hot Boyz-related news to surface as the Cowboys officially placed Datone Jones on injured reserve. This was a move made in order to accommodate the newest member of the group, Caraun Reid.

Reid spent some time with the Cowboys at the tail end of August, including playing in the preseason game at Houston. Familiarity with the scheme and coaches is always a good thing, and it’s apparently one that Reid has benefited from.
Datone Jones made his season debut in Seattle after he was coming off of a knee injury. It’s unfortunate that he’s now on injured reserve, but that is the grim reality of the NFL.
Hopefully Jones gets back to himself soon and here’s hoping Reid helps bring some sacks.
