The Dallas Cowboys officially designated C Joe Looney to return from injured reserve on Wednesday.
This opens a three-week window of time for the Cowboys to activate him from injured reserve and add him to their 53-man roster.
Looney, 30, is a former fourth-round pick of the 49ers back in 2012. He spent three years in San Francisco before he was unfortunately among the team’s final roster cuts at the start of the 2015 season.
Looney spent a year with the Titans before the Cowboys signed him to a two-year contract for the 2016 season. He re-signed to another two-year deal with Dallas in March of 2018 and returned to Dallas on a one-year contract this past March.
In 2020, Looney has appeared in all four games for the Cowboys, making four starts for them at center.
