Newcomers active for Cowboys
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Signed on Monday and Tuesday, cornerback Sterling Moore and defensive end Martez Wilson are active for the Dallas Cowboys today against the Oakland Raiders.
Moore was signed with Morris Claiborne out with a hamstring injury. Wilson, who played three games earlier in the season for the Raiders, took the roster spot of Everett Dawkins.
Tight end Gavin Escobar, who was added to the injury report on Wednesday with a hamstring injury, is active. He was listed as questionable.
Sean Lee, Justin Durant, Claiborne and Dwayne Harris, who have hamstring injuries, and DeVonte Holloman (neck) were ruled out Wednesday. Darrion Weems and Jakar Hamilton joined them on the inactive list.
Ernie Sims will start for Lee and Kyle Wilber will replace Durant.
The Cowboys are hopeful Lee will be able to return Dec. 9 against the Chicago Bears.
Former Cowboys receiver Andre Holmes will start for the Raiders.
