Ken Bishop returns on practice squad

IRVING, Texas -- Released on Saturday to make room for linebacker Keith Smith on the Dallas Cowboys' active roster, defensive tackle Ken Bishop cleared waivers and has been added to the team's practice squad.

Bishop, one of the Cowboys' five seventh-round picks in May, was active for three of the first six games and was credited with two tackles and a quarterback pressure.

Linebacker Korey Toomer has also cleared waivers, but he has not been re-signed to the practice squad yet. Toomer was active for three games but saw little playing time as the Cowboys chose to recall Smith with injuries at the linebacker spot in part because Smith was more familiar with the defensive scheme. Toomer was cut last week when the Cowboys brought back defensive end Lavar Edwards.
