If the Cowboys carry a third quarterback on the roster to start the season, it won’t be Dustin Vaughan, who has been informed of his release, according to a source. Vaughan spent last year on the active roster as the No. 3 behind Tony Romo and Brandon Weeden. If he clears waivers, he would likely be brought back to the practice squad. The fourth QB, Jameill Showers, will also be released.

Roster churning in store for Cowboys?

Dallas usually adds some new players to the roster near cut-down day, and this year should be no different. Will they claim a linebacker or defensive back via waivers? Could they trade for another running back, perhaps? Saturday NFL storylines

For the fourth time in AT&T Stadium history a punt hit the center-hung digital board. Houston Texans punter Shane Lechler drilled a kick into the middle of the board with 13:09 remaining in the game. By rule the Texans had to re-kick and got the ball back after a muffed punt. In 2009 A.J. Trapasso was the first to hit the board. The Cowboys' Chris Jones hit it in 2013 and '14. Only one time has it happened in a regular season game.

As was the case with Wednesday's Kickoff Luncheon, Cowboys defensive end Greg Hardy has been excused from tonight's game against the Houston Texans for personal reasons. Hardy might not have played tonight anyway with the coaches wanting to give the younger players more work. As was reported earlier today, a source said Hardy will confer again with the NFLPA about whether to seek a further reduction in his suspension through the court system.

The decision to vacate Tom Brady's suspension could impact how many games Greg Hardy plays for the Cowboys in 2015, as he will confer with the NLFPA whether to challenge his own ban in court.

The power of Tom Brady?

According to ESPN's NFL Football Power Index, the Patriots have a better than 50 percent chance of winning against each of their first four opponents with Brady back under center.

Brady is free to take on familiar foes
