The Cowboys moved receiver Sam Hurd (migraines) to injured reserve and promoted quarterback Chris Greisen to the 53-player roster Friday. It leaves the Cowboys thin at receiver. Dez Bryant and Kevin Ogletree both went on injured reserve earlier this month, and Roy Williams has been slowed by a groin injury.
Miles Austin, Manny Johnson and Teddy Williams are the team's only healthy receivers. Johnson and Williams recently were promoted from the practice squad. Johnson has played in one game in his career, and Williams has never been active for a game.
Hurd also is one of the team's best special teams players. He is second in special teams tackles with 21, and he has 14 catches for 120 yards. He is an unrestricted free agent after the season and could go elsewhere to try to get more playing time at receiver.
