The Cowboys promoted receiver Ventell Bryant to their 53-player roster Monday. He takes the place of safety Kavon Frazier, whom the team placed on injured reserve.

Frazier tore a pectoral muscle.

The Cowboys expect Bryant to help them on special teams, a role Frazier played well. Frazier saw 53 plays on special teams, which was 53.5 percent of the team’s special teams snaps.

Bryant went undrafted in the spring despite making 173 receptions for 2,444 yards and 10 touchdowns at Temple. He signed with the Bengals as a college free agent and made 14 receptions for 154 yards in the preseason.

The Cowboys signed former Packers safety Josh Jones to take Bryant’s spot on the practice squad. He worked out earlier in the season.

Jones played 29 games with 12 starts the past two seasons in Green Bay, which made him a second-round pick in 2017.

  1. Two years ago I though Josh Jones would be in the Pro Bowl after a few seasons. Not sure if his work ethic took a dive or what really happened in GB in regards to his trade demand (and eventual release). But he had made some brilliant plays at one point in his young career.

    Good luck to the Cowboys and hope they can get him productive again.

  2. I bleed Packer blood but it is amazing on how poorly they pick high end safeties and corners in the draft. At least Jaire Alexander looks good maybe Darnell Savage but the rest have been meh at best. Oops this is a cowboy post. That Elliot guy is pretty good I’d pick him on my Fantasy team this week for sure.

  3. I’m Dallas fan since 1975 now there is a mystery injury to l Collins. I’m starting to believe ownership is looking to create reasons for them to lose again. As a Dallas fan I won’t accept it I’ve spent 70% of my life Loving this team . They better win Sunday
