The Cowboys cut defensive end Martez Wilson and fullback J.C. Copeland, reports Pro Football Talk.
With rookie Demarcus Lawrence expected to miss 8-12 weeks with a fractured foot, the Cowboys are thin at defensive end. Jeremy Mincey and George Selvie are running with the first team, and Martez Wilson and rookie Ben Gardner could get into the mix, reports the Dallas Morning News. Dallas hopes Anthony Spencer can return from his microfracture surgery. He's currently on the PUP list.
The Cowboys declared these players inactive for the game vs. Philly: quarterback Tony Romo, who earlier was ruled out with a back injury; linebacker Sean Lee (neck), linebacker Ernie Sims (groin), offensive tackle Darrion Weems, linebacker Martez Wilson, cornerback B.W. Webb and defensive back Jakar Hamilton.
The Cowboys have listed WR Dwayne Harris, S Jakar Hamilton, CB Morris Claiborne, LB Sean Lee, DE Martez Wilson and LB Ernie Sims as inactive Week 16 against Washington. Claiborne and Sims came into the game listed as doubtful. The other five players are healthy scratches.
Linebackers Sean Lee (neck) and Bruce Carter (hamstring), cornerback Morris Claiborne (hamstring) and wideout Dwayne Harris (hamstring) have all been red-lighted for the Cowboys on Sunday. Also out are tackle Darrion Weems, defensive back Jakar Hamilton and linebacker Martez Wilson.
