WR Laurent Robinson to be re-signed

The Cowboys plan to re-sign receiver Laurent Robinson.

Robinson was signed the week of the season opener but strained his hamstring during his second practice with the Cowboys. He was released last week to make room on the roster for fullback Tony Fiammetta.

The Cowboys still have a need for receiver depth, especially with Miles Austin expected to miss Monday night’s game due to a strained hamstring. Robinson has 89 catches for 1,000 yards and four touchdowns in his four-year NFL career.

“He’s ready to go. He’ll be out there,” owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM. “He’s someone that we [believe has] a lot of promise, but we won’t go outside our roster at receiver for anybody that will help us in a ballgame. Of course, we are really pleased with the way [Jesse] Holley stepped up.”

The Cowboys would have to make a roster move to create room for Robinson. It isn’t clear yet which player will be released.
