Cowboys cut safety Mana Silva
Sensabaugh pronounced himself ready to go Wednesday after taking part in a walkthrough. The Cowboys will resume their normal practice schedule Thursday.
The Cowboys needed Moorman because of a knee injury suffered by Chris Jones after he nearly had his second punt blocked in as many weeks. He will not require surgery, but Jones could miss a couple of weeks. Moorman was cut by Buffalo after putting up a 45.5-yard average with only a 32.7-yard net average, which ranked 31st in the league. He will also serve as Dan Bailey's holder on field goal attempts and PATs.
Silva made two defensive tackles and one special teams’ stop in the first three games. With the loss of Barry Church to a torn Achilles, the Cowboys signed veteran Eric Frampton on Tuesday. He had been a special teams’ stalwart in five years in Minnesota but did not start a game at safety.
The Cowboys will go into the Bears’ game with Sensabaugh and Danny McCray as their safeties in the base defense and can move Brandon Carr to safety in their sub packages. Frampton is the only other healthy safety on the 53-man roster with rookie Matt Johnson coming back from hamstring and back injuries.
