The Dallas Cowboys announced Saturday that they’ve promoted WR Cedrick Wilson to their active roster and waived LB Chris Covington.
Dallas is making this move in part because WR/PR Tavon Austin is out for Week 2’s game with a concussion.
Wilson, 23, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2018. He agreed to a four-year, $2.6 million contract with Dallas but spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a shoulder injury.
The Cowboys waived Wilson coming out of the preseason and later re-signed him to their practice squad.
During his two-year college career at Boise State, Wilson caught 139 passes for 2,640 yards receiving and 18 touchdowns over the course of 26 games. He also totaled 742 kick return yards and 132 punt return yards.
