  • Dennis Houston: Returns to Dallas

    Houston signed with the Cowboys' practice squad Thursday.

    Houston initially joined Dallas as an undrafted free agent out of Western Illinois and caught two of five passes for 16 yards in Week 1. However, the 23-year-old failed to haul in his lone target while playing 32 percent of the Cowboys' offensive snaps in Week 2 and was waived by the team Tuesday. With No. 2 wideout Michael Gallup (knee) likely set to return Monday, Houston will serve as a potential gameday elevation should Dallas' receiving corps sustain any further injuries this season.

  • Dennis Houston: Goes to waivers

    Dallas waived Houston on Tuesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The undrafted rookie out of Western Illinois earned a spot on the Cowboys' 53-man roster with an impressive offseason, but with Michael Gallup (knee) nearing a return, Houston was let go. Unless he's claimed by another team during the current waiver period, he'll become an unrestricted free agent, though he could find a spot on a practice squad.

  • Cowboys' Dennis Houston: Quiet pro debut

    Houston caught two of five passes for 16 yards in Sunday's loss to the Buccaneers.

    The Tampa Bay secondary focused its attention on CeeDee Lamb (2-29-0 on a team-high 11 targets), but Houston wasn't able to do much against lesser coverage. The undrafted rookie earned a spot on the roster with a strong offseason, but with Dak Prescott (hand) now set to miss multiple weeks and Cooper Rush taking over under center, the entire Cowboys passing game figures to take a big step back. Houston also will face additional competition for snaps and targets once Michael Gallup (knee) is cleared to play, something that could happen as soon as Week 2 against the Bengals.

  • Cowboys' Dennis Houston: Two grabs Friday

    Houston caught two of three targets for 25 yards in Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

    The undrafted rookie free agent out of Western Illinois caught passes from two different quarterbacks on the night, connecting with Will Grier on an eight-yard reception late in the first quarter before helping set up the eventual game-winning touchdown in the fourth quarter with a 17-yard catch from Ben DiNucci. The fact that Houston was still on the field that late in the contest suggests he's on the roster bubble, but he's been impressing the coaching staff since OTAs and has helped his case with some strong work on special teams. If Houston does make the Week 1 roster, he'll be fighting with Jalen Tolbert, Noah Brown (toe), Simi Fehoko and KaVontae Turpin for snaps and targets behind CeeDee Lamb (foot) in a patchwork receiving corps that will eventually get reinforcements in the form of Michael Gallup (knee) and James Washington (foot).

  • Cowboys' Dennis Houston: Still making impact in practice

    Houston ended Thursday's joint practice with the Chargers by catching a Hail Mary pass from Dak Prescott for a touchdown, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The undrafted rookie out of Western Illinois has been making a name for himself since OTAs, and Houston connecting with Prescott on a big play -- even if it's in practice -- can only help his chances of making the final roster. What's working in Houston's favor even more is the health of the rest of the Cowboys' wide receiver corps. Michael Gallup (knee) and James Washington (foot) are set to miss the beginning of the regular season, while CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown are both dealing with minor toe/foot issues. That leaves Houston competing primarily with Simi Fehoko and KaVontae Turpin for snaps on offense behind 2022 third-round pick Jalen Tolbert.

  • Cowboys' Dennis Houston: Making good early impression

    Houston drew praise from both head coach Mike McCarthy and teammate CeeDee Lamb on Tuesday, David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    In the wake of a foot injury to James Washington that could keep him sidelined until mid-October, the Cowboys' depth chart at wide receiver suddenly seems perilously thin behind Lamb. Team owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday he was "satisfied" with the team's depth and felt "no urgency" to go out and sign a veteran, however, and Houston's emergence may have something to do with that. The undrafted rookie out of Western Illinois has been standing out to the coaching staff since OTAs, and Lamb has noticed too, noting how "smooth he is in and out of his breaks" Houston isn't likely to force his way into a starting role, but he appears to be doing everything necessary to win a roster spot.
