Cowboys cuts: Countdown to the 53-man roster
* WR Danny Coale will be waived, according to sources, and will become the second fifth rounder in as many years to not make the final cut, joining cornerback Josh Thomas. Coale missed most of the offseason with a stress fracture in his foot and was limited early in training camp. He played in the final two preseason games and the team hopes he can slip through waivers and on to the practice squad. (Thu.)
* FB Shaun Chapas (per source): Seventh-round pick spent most of last season on the practice squad before a late-season call up to the active roster. (Thu.)
* LB Adrian Hamilton (per source): Dallas Carter High product got caught in a numbers crunch at outside linebacker. (Thu.)
* QB Rudy Carpenter: "Thankful for the opportunity Dallas its been great!" he tweeted. (Thu.)
* LB Orie Lemon (per source): He returned an interception for a touchdown in the preseason finale against Miami. The Cowboys hope to bring him back to the practice squad. (Thu.)
*WR Tim Benford: "Everything happens for a reason! Gotta keep pushing and go even harder," he tweeted. (Thu.)
