The Cowboys won’t have Justin Durant the rest of the season. They placed the veteran linebacker on injured reserve Tuesday, a clear indication that he would not be able to come back from a hamstring injury suffered in the game against Green Bay, his second hamstring injury of the season.
Durant was playing as the backup to Sean Lee at middle linebacker, but he also started at strongside linebacker.
The Cowboys re-signed linebacker Orie Lemon, who was released last week to make room for defensive end Edgar Jones, who returned off the IR/return list.
The team released linebacker Kyle Bosworth and defensive tackle Drake Nevis, leaving one spot open on the active roster.
The Cowboys also released running back George Winn off the practice squad.
