Cowboys roster update: Allen Hurns to IR, Lance Lenoir back, Brandon Reilly to practice squad

The Cowboys needed to make some moves because of injury

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Unfortunately, when Allen Hurns went down with an injury last Saturday night it was immediately obvious that his season was over. We’re all sending our positive thoughts and well wishes his way, some Cowboys even visited him on Monday night.

As for what the Cowboys will do in handling Hurns’ situation, they’ve officially placed him on injured reserve. If one wide receiver is being pulled out, then one wide receiver has to be put back in its place and as a result the Cowboys have promoted Lance Lenoir back to the 53-man roster. Brandon Reilly is taking Lenoir’s spot on the practice squad as a result.

Lenoir has bounced to and from the official roster this season so it’s not shocking that the Cowboys chose to bring him back. He has experience on special teams which is never a bad thing although that unit could certainly use some overall help these days.

Four days until the Rams game.
