The Cowboys released returner Micheal Spurlock on Wednesday to make room for backup quarterback Jon Kitna. Kitna agreed to terms with the Cowboys on Tuesday as the team's third quarterback.
Spurlock had a 62-yard punt return Sunday that set up the Cowboys' first touchdown. It was his first and only game with the Cowboys. He replaced Dwayne Harris, who has missed the past two games with a hamstring strain.
Harris is averaging 30.5 yards on 26 kickoff returns and 14 yards and a touchdown on 17 punt returns. He missed the Oakland game, returning for the Bears game the following week before aggravating his hamstring.
