Cowboys Place DT Brian Price On IR, Promote DT Lewis Neal

The Dallas Cowboys announced Wednesday that they’ve placed DT Brian Price on injured reserve and promoted DT Lewis Neal tot heir active roster.

  • The Cowboys have also signed DT Joe Vellano to the practice squad.

The Cowboys’ practice squad now consists of:

  1. G Kadeem Edwards
  2. WR Lance Lenior
  3. CB Marquez White
  4. WR Brian Brown
  5. DB Jameill Showers
  6. OT Jarron Jones
  7. LB Tre’von Johnson

  10. DT Joe Vellano

Price, 23, wound up signing a three-year, $1.62 million contract on with the Packers as an undrafted free agent out of Texas-San Antonio back in May. However, he was unfortunately among their roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

The Packers later signed him to their practice squad before calling him up for a brief stint on their active roster back in September. Green Bay waived Price as they trimmed their roster down to the 53-man limit coming out of the preseason and was later claimed off of waivers by the Cowboys.

In 2017, Price appeared in eight games for the Cowboys and recorded eight tackles, no sacks and a pass defense. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 96 interior defender out of 117 qualifying players.
