The release of former Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk topped the list of roster moves made by the Cowboys on Thursday to shore up their injury-plagued roster.

The Cowboys also waived receivers Reggie Dunn and Deontay Greenberry and cornerback Brandon Smith. The Cowboys signed receivers Phil Bates and Edmond Gates and linebacker Dakorey Johnson after workouts Thursday morning.

They also claimed defensive back Rod Sweeting off waivers from the Bills.

Seastrunk came to training camp as a long shot to make the roster. He was unable to take advantage of injuries to Darren McFadden and Lance Dunbar at the beginning of camp. He was passed by undrafted free agent Gus Johnson and even fell behind Ben Malena and Michael Hill, who were both signed last Saturday, in the pecking order at running back.

This is the fourth time the former Baylor star has been cut since being picked by the Washington Redskins in the sixth round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He was released on final cuts Washington and then spent time on practice squads of the Carolina Panthers and Tennessee Titans before being cut.

This could be the end of the road for the former five-start recruit out of Temple, who originally signed with Oregon before coming home to be a standout with Baylor.
