FRIDAY, 12:53pm: The Cowboys have officially promoted Pellerin from the practice squad to their active roster, tweets Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun. As noted below, Dallas didn’t have an open roster spot, so we’re still awaiting word on the corresponding move.
WEDNESDAY, 5:50pm: The Cowboys will sign practice squad cornerback Micah Pellerin to the active roster later this week, according to Charean Williams of the Star-Telegram. The move will give the Cowboys added depth in the secondary in advance of their Sunday showdown against the Giants.
It’s not yet known what the corresponding move will be, but Williams suggests that the Cowboys will likely target the defensive line where they have eleven players on the active roster. The promotion of Pellerin to the varsity squad was necessitated by Tyler Patmon‘s injury which will sideline him for two to four weeks.
The Hampton University product went undrafted in 2012 and has had stints with the Colts, Packers, Titans, and two go-rounds with the Cowboys. In 2013, he saw five games of NFL action for the Cowboys and Titans.
