It was a short stay in Dallas for Jayrone Elliott. The outside linebacker was waived on Tuesday. The move will create room for the return of defensive end Damontre Moore, who was suspended for the first two games of the season.
Elliott was acquired on Sept. 3 via a trade with the Packers. The Cowboys gave up a 2018 conditional seventh-round pick in the swap and, presumably, those conditions were not met. The Cowboys will keep the seventh-round choice in the spring after essentially renting the linebacker for two games. He did not see time in either contest.
The Cowboys are happy to get Moore back in the lineup, particularly as Anthony Hitchens continues to rehab from a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee.
