Cowboys cut TE Colin Cochart

The Cowboys announced the release of tight end Colin Cochart, who was claimed on waivers Sept. 1 but did not make the trip to New Jersey for the season opener.

The team almost cut Cochart on game day last week, when they intended to promote rookie running back Lance Dunbar from the practice squad. However, the Cowboys changed their mind over the course of the day and did not make a roster move before their win over the New York Giants.

The Cowboys have not announced how they plan to fill the roster spot opened up by Cochart's release Tuesday.
