The preseason is over for the Dallas Cowboys and they have just a few things to tend to before all focus can be on the New York Giants and the opening game against them on September 10th.

One of those things is the finalization of the team’s 53-man roster. Every team in the NFL has to be down to an initial 53 by 4:00 pm ET on Tuesday, August 29th. Between now and then we are likely going to see a flurry of activity which is why we have put together a tracker for all relevant information.

It is important to remember that the Cowboys are assembling their initial 53-man roster and that it will very likely change in some way, shape or form over the next few days. Dallas has to play roster gymnastics to get players into certain places to free up certain roster spots.

Cornerback Jourdan Lewis is a name to watch as he is on the team’s PUP list. If Lewis remains on this list he must miss the first four games of the season, or Dallas can activate him and place him on the roster and then place him on injured reserve if they feel that is the best path forward. These are the kinds of things that will be happening as noted.

We will update this post as names become available.

Necessary notes

  • Regarding the Cowboys moving on from Trent Sieg: This is a temporary move that will allow the Cowboys to place someone else on injured reserve as the person in question has to be part of the active roster first, Trent Sieg will obviously be a part of this team as noted in the report from Michael Gehlken.
  • Regarding the Cowboys moving on from Chuma Edoga: This is reproted as a temproary move to allow the team to keep Josh Ball on the initial 53-man roster, then move him to IR and re-sign Edoga.

Rumors about the Dallas Cowboys roster

  • Kelvin Joseph and Jabril Cox may be out when things are finalized
  • Josh Ball reportedly has a soft tissue injury that will sideline him about two months, according to the DMN, which means Dallas will either need to carry him initially to place him on IR or move on altogether
  • The Cowboys seem ready to promote Jourdan Lewis to the 53-man roster from the PUP list
