Cowboys roster move: Dallas adding offensive lineman Marcus Henry to practice squad

An update on the newest practice squad member.

NFL: NFC Wild Card-Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys Shane Roper-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys tinkered with their roster last week when they promoted Josh Jones to the 53-man roster from the practice squad.

This move was possible because the Cowboys placed Adam Redmond on injured reserve. With it being Week 12 in the NFL, there are generally injuries everywhere.

This meant that the Cowboys had an open spot on their practice squad. The team held tryouts on Tuesday, and according to ESPN’s Todd Archer, they have settled on a replacement. They are signing offensive lineman Marcus Henry.

Henry has bounced around in the NFL ever since 2016 after going undrafted out of - wait for it - Boise State. We all know how much the Cowboys love their Broncos and it appears that they have a new one on their team.

You can never have too much offensive line depth and the Cowboys have had some banged up offensive linemen this year. Hopefully no more depth is necessary.
