Entering the second full week of preseason football, all NFL teams have to move their active roster from 90 players down to 85. In Dallas, a multitude of players were performing well in both training camp and preseason playing time, earning a chance to compete for a spot on the 53-man roster come August 31.

On Tuesday, the Cowboys announced the five moves, with three players being released and a pair moving to the injured reserve so Dallas can keep a hold of them.

Reggie Robinson and Sewo Olonilua will stay in the house with the Cowboys using the injured reserve as a way to hold onto them this season and potentially give them a spot on the roster in 2022. Robinson has been a project in Dallas since being drafted last year in the fourth round and the staff hopes he can become a serviceable player before his rookie deal is up. Olonilua spent time on the active roster last year but only played on special teams.

After this move, Dallas continues to trim down their roster with some surprises making it past the first cut. The next roster cut comes on August 24, where the Cowboys will have to cut another five players who are currently on the active roster.
