The Cowboys made their roster move today, promoting running back Chauncey Washington from the practice squad. He has worked on the special teams units all week and will be used as an emergency running back if Marion Barber's injured left quadriceps doesn't hold up for the entire game. Barber will start.
To get Washington on the 53-player roster, the Cowboys released safety Marvin White. But they could re-sign the former TCU standout on Monday if White clears waivers.
Washington was signed to the Cowboys' practice squad on Sept. 22. He has four career carries, all with Jacksonville last season.
