Orie Lemon joins roster; Mario Butler released

By Calvin Watkins

The Cowboys have called up linebacker Orie Lemon from the practice squad Saturday and moved him to the active roster, the team announced.

Cornerback Mario Butler has been released to make room for Lemon.

Lemon's promotion means he'll get time on special teams if he plays Sunday against Tampa Bay.

Butler showed the Cowboys some versatility by playing both safety and corner.
