IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have released injured
fullback Deon Anderson to make room for tight end Scott Chandler,
who was activated from the practice squad.
The move Friday comes about a week after Anderson had surgery on
his left knee to repair a torn meniscus. The fourth-year pro played
in 38 games, including 18 starts, in his first three seasons.
Anderson's replacement, rookie Chris Gronkowski, scored a
touchdown last week against Chicago.
Chandler is the third tight end behind Jason Witten and
Martellus Bennett. Witten was limited in practice this week after
sustaining a head injury against the Bears.
