Cowboys hope to get Chris Jones back
Wide receiver Raymond Radway, who worked out Friday, was signed to the practice squad.
But there is another move pending. Punter Chris Jones missed the Week 4 game against Tampa Bay with a sprained knee and in his absence, Brian Moorman was signed.
Maybe for one game only.
Coach Jason Garrett said Jones could return to practice this week, maybe even today, at Valley Ranch.
Prior to his injury, Jones had a net average of 44.4 and allowed just 22 return yards.
As of now, the Cowboys have two punters on their active roster. The Cowboys most likely would release Moorman if Jones is able to show the medical and coaching staff he can punt with no problems.
"He hurt his knee a couple of weeks ago and did a good job of fighting through it, punting throughout that ballgame," Garrett said. "We'll see what he does today and go forward this week."
Moorman wasn't bad in the loss to the Chicago Bears. He punted three times for 111 yards, sending two inside the 20. But the Cowboys value Jones more and want him to return as the full-time punter. If Jones isn't ready from a physical standpoint, what Moorman did against Chicago should give the team confidence he could perform well again this week at Baltimore if needed.
