According to Michael Gehlken, the Cowboys have signed RB Darius Jackson to the practice squad.
The Cowboys updated practice squad now includes:
- QB Clayton Thorson
- RB Mike Weber
- WR Cedrick Wilson
- TE Cole Hikutini
- OT Mitch Hyatt
- DT Daniel Wise
- RB Darius Jackson
- CB Donovan Olumba
- CB Mike Jackson
- WR Ventell Bryant
Jackson, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2016. Dallas waived him towards the end of the 2016 season and was later claimed off waivers by the Browns.
The Cowboys signed Jackson to a contract the following year, but elected to cut him loose as they trimmed their roster down to 53 players. Jackson had a brief stint with the Packers before returning to the Cowboys last year.
Jackson was, once again, among the Cowboys’ roster cuts a few weeks ago.
In 2018, Jackson appeared in four games for the Packers and Cowboys and rushed for 16 yards on six carries (2.2 YPC).
