Cowboys practice squad player ends up on COIVD-19 list, making three players now

It’s a little concerning the Cowboys COVID list is growing.

Raise your hand if you knew that a player named Walter Palmore was on the Cowboys practice squad. He is, and he now joins another list, one no player wants to be on. He is the third Cowboys player over the last couple of weeks to be put on the COVID-19 list. His name was on the NFL’s Friday transactions. He joins Andy Dalton and Tyrone Crawford on the list.

Palmore, a defensive tackle, was signed by the Cowboys in late October while Dontari Poe was still patrolling the middle of the line but was in danger of losing his job. Palmore played college ball at Missouri and was an undrafted free agent with the Texans, before spending some time in the XFL.

The Cowboys last game was against the Pittsburgh Steelers who put tight end Vance McDonald on the COVID list after the game. The hope is that the Cowboys are able to put a stop to the spread if they are having positive tests, or they could be just quarantining players after contact tracing.
