The Dallas Cowboys will get a reinforcement back to help try to patch an ailing defensive unit.
According to the Associated Press, the Cowboys have activated defensive end Edgar Jones from the injured reserve list.
Jones was placed on the reserve/designated to return list in October after suffering an abdominal/groin injury. Jones appeared in the first four games of the season for Dallas after being acquired from Kansas City at the end of the preseason. Jones recorded five tackles and a pass defense in those four games.
Jones is eligible to play this week against the Green Bay Packers. The Cowboys’ defense is coming off another pathetic on Monday night. The Chicago Bears scored on all eight possessions and Josh McCown threw four touchdowns and ran in for another in handing the Cowboys a 45-28 defeat.
