Cowboys release Martin Rucker

By Todd Archer

IRVING, Texas -- To make room for cornerback Frank Walker, the Cowboys released tight end Martin Rucker.

Rucker’s departure likely means Martellus Bennett will be back in action after missing the season opener at the New York Jets with an ankle injury. Rucker saw only a handful of snaps on offense and played on special teams against the Jets.

The Cowboys also released linebacker Isaiah Greenhouse from the practice squad, leaving a spot open for Rucker to return if he clears waivers.
