Cowboys to waive QB Alex Tanney

August, 30, 2013
IRVING, Texas -- The Dallas Cowboys will go with two quarterbacks -- Tony Romo and Kyle Orton -- on the 53-man roster.

Alex Tanney was informed of his release on Friday, according to a source. The Cowboys could bring him back to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Tanney played most of Thursday’s 24-6 loss to Houston, completing 17 of 31 passes for 177 yards. He was intercepted once and sacked seven times. He finished the preseason with 423 yards on 40-of-73 passing with a touchdown and two picks.

The Cowboys also released offensive lineman Edawn Coughman.
