Dallas Cowboys: Donovan Wood
Dallas signed defensive back Marquis Floyd from West Georgia and Donovan Woods, a linebacker, from Oklahoma State.
Coach Wade Phillips said the team was looking at Floyd for some time and was able to sign Woods when a practice squad spot opened up when the team lost quarterback Rudy Carpenter to Tampa Bay.
With Carpenter gone it allows the team to give third-string quarterback Stephen McGee more reps in practice.
"He was getting the work anyway," Phillips said. "Rudy was getting some but McGee needs a lot of work as far as scout team stuff, so it was hard to have four quarterbacks."
So here is the practice squad roster: WR Manuel Johnson, WR Jesse Holley, CB Marquis Floyd, LB Donovan Woods, G Travis Bright, TE Scott Chandler and DE Marcus Dixon.
