It is time for training camp to (hopefully) begin as normally as it can for the Dallas Cowboys during the Covid-19 era. There are a lot of things for NFL teams to take into account as they prepare for the upcoming season, including football decisions. We have seen two Cowboys players make their own decisions as Maurice Canady and Stephen Guidry both reportedly intend to opt out of the season, but the organization will still need to do a bit more roster trimming to get down to the mandated 80-man roster deadline of August 16th.

The Dallas Cowboys are releasing running back Jordan Chunn

There aren’t exactly a ton of spots on the Cowboys roster for running backs not named Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard; there haven’t been any spots beyond Zeke for a few years now.

We know that Dallas generally likes to carry two running backs with a fullback and they are seemingly making that clear yet again. They reportedly informed Jordan Chunn that he is being released.

Jordan Chunn joined the Cowboys two years ago after going undrafted. There have been those that thought he was capable of contributing to the roster, especially on special teams, but it appears as if that will not be the case.

Trimming the roster to get to 80 is clearly underway for the Cowboys. Welcome to training camp 2020.

Update: 12:00pm ET

The Dallas Cowboys are also waiving Garrett Marino.

So it goes.
