Cornerback Frank Walker, who signed with the Cowboys on Tuesday, said he can be ready to play by Sunday. That's good news for Dallas, because with Terence Newman (groin), Orlando Scandrick (ankle) and Mike Jenkins (shoulder) banged up, the Cowboys might need him.
"I was definitely watching the [Jets] game," Walker said. "Jenkins played pretty tough. He had a lot of stuff going on. I saw him keep leaving and coming back. I was like what is going on.
"I know the situation. I’ve been in that situation before. I understand it completely."
Walker, who went to training camp with the Titans, drew interest from Tennesee, Carolina and Dallas. He picked the Cowboys because of the injuries in the defensive backfield as well as his relationship with Jason Garrett. Walker was a rookie with the Giants in 2003, Garrett's last year as a player with the Giants.
"Oh, man, I used to give him a lot of trouble when we were in New York," Walker said. "But we had a lot of fun."
Walker has played in 93 games over an eight-year career with the Giants, Packers, Ravens and Vikings.
