Dallas also elevated DB Saivion Smith, DB Deante Burton, and OT Eric Smith from their practice squad to active roster on Saturday. 

It’s worth mentioning that the NFL changed the rules regarding injured reserve for the 2020 season and players can return from the list in just three weeks. 

Awuzie, 25, is a former second-round pick by the Cowboys in the 2017 NFL Draft out of Colorado. He’s in the final year of his four-year, $4.3 million rookie contract. 

So far this season, Awuzie has appeared in two games and recorded three total tackles, one interception, and two pass defenses.
