The Cowboys have made a last-minute roster move as they prepare for their divisional matchup against the Packers, promoting rookie defensive tackle Ken Bishop to the active roster from the practice squad, according to David Helman of DallasCowboys.com.
Although he hasn’t been active for the Cowboys since they beat the Seahawks on October 12, Bishop had been practicing with the second team all week. Bishop will likely serve as insurance if Terrell McClain cannot play with an ankle injury. The team had only three healthy defensive tackles on the roster before making the move.
The Cowboys have released safety Jakar Hamilton to clear room on the roster for Bishop. Hamilton, an undrafted free agent signed in 2013, has spent much of his time with the team on the practice squad and had only played in one game this year.
It is not yet decided whether the team will dress Bishop on Sunday, and that will likely depend on McClain’s status going into the game.
