The Dallas Cowboys are a bit banged with one more game to go before their bye week, but some of their injuries are too much to overcome this season. For example, Tyrone Crawford who the team placed on injured reserve on Tuesday.

Obviously this opens up a roster spot for the Dallas Cowboys and with preparations for a new week officially beginning on Wednesday, they made a corresponding move. Per ESPN’s Todd Archer, the Cowboys are signing defensive lineman Justin Hamilton.

To replace Tyrone Crawford, the Cowboys have signed defensive lineman Justin Hamilton, who was among the Kansas City Chiefs’ final cuts In August. ‪At 6-2‬, 315 pounds, Hamilton brings size to the interior of the Cowboys line and he has familiarity with passing game coordinator Kris Richard, having spent time with the Seattle Seahawks.

Hamilton spent time with the Kansas City Chiefs most recently. Ultimately, he did not make their 53-man roster because, as life always goes full circle, he was beat out by Joey Ivie. Yes, the Joey Ivie that the Dallas Cowboys drafted two years. ago.

Hopefully Hamilton brings some presence to the interior part of the Cowboys defensive line.
