They have made the practice squad

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have filled out their
eight-man practice squad with six players they recently cut.

Tackle Cliff Louis and tight end Scott Chandler are the
newcomers, although Chandler was with the club in training camp
last year.

The others were with the team during training camp. They are:
guard Travis Bright, receivers Jesse Holley and Manny Johnson,
running back Lonyae Miller, tight end Martin Rucker and cornerback
Teddy Williams.

The oddity of this group is that there's only a single defensive
player - Williams, an offensive player in high school who ran track
in college instead of playing football. Dallas signed him during
training camp in hopes of developing his speed. If he makes the
active roster, it's more likely to be as a kick returner.

Johnson is from Gilmer.  He led Gilmer to a perfect season and a state championship in 2004.

Williams went to John Tyler.  He ran track for UT San Antonio.
