Tony Romo is remaining on the active roster for the time being, but the Cowboys still need another quarterback to join Matt Cassel on the roster for games while Romo returns to the sideline with another broken clavicle.
Kellen Moore will be that quarterback. Moore was elevated from the practice squad on Wednesday, a little less than a month after he was dropped from the 53-man roster ahead of Romo’s return from his first break of the season. Moore has never played in a regular season game and his chances of getting into one might not get any better than they would if the Cowboys are officially playing out the string as the regular season comes to an end.
The Cowboys also announced that they have activated tackle Chaz Green from the physically unable to perform list. Green was a third-round pick this year and has been out since having offseason hip surgery.
Green’s addition to the roster coincides with the loss of another draft pick as the team placed fifth-round defensive end Ryan Russell on injured reserve with an abdominal injury. Running back Trey Williams was waived earlier this week, opening up the other roster spot that the Cowboys filled on Wednesday.
