It has been an interesting sort of back and forth week for the Dallas Cowboys which is not exactly a ton of fun given that a win on Sunday clinches the NFC East and #2 seed in the conference for the team, but at long last something finally became official on Thursday.

Earlier in the week it was reported that Dallas was bringing in former players La’el Collins and Damien Wilson for workouts and potential spots on the practice squad. While it was initially reported that Collins did join the practice squad on Tuesday, by Wednesday there was news that it hadn’t become official yet. All is well that ends well though and both La’el and Damien are officially back.

Collins and Wilson are only two players who recently joined the team’s practice squad, upping the total to four. What goes up must come down which means Dallas had to part ways with four players and wide receiver Martavis Bryant was among them.

One interesting note from today about Collins.

These moves are ultimately a part of the Cowboys establishing the best depth possible that they believe can help them in what is hopefully a very long playoff push. At this time it seems pretty unlikely that Collins, Wilson, Racey McMath or SaRodorick Thompson will be called upon, but obviously anything is possible.
