Cowboys unable to defend star at home except for Jones shove
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys defense might want to delete that last group photo. It was a celebration that proved a bit premature.
On this Monday night, the Cowboys didn't defend their star in a 28-14 loss — except for Byron Jones shoving Kevin Byard when the Tennessee Titans safety did his best imitation of Terrell Owens' infamous taunting on the midfield logo 18 years ago.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have released 10-year veteran cornerback Orlando Scandrick, another move toward getting younger in the secondary.

Cowboys’ Scandrick out against Broncos with broken hand
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas cornerback Orlando Scandrick has been ruled out of Sunday's game at Denver with a broken left hand.

Cowboys sign veteran Robert Blanton for depth at safety
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have signed veteran safety Robert Blanton for depth after losing five-year starter Barry Church and J.J. Wilcox in free agency.

Dallas Cowboy Byron Jones laughed and whooped it up with students at Vestal Elementary School on Thursday, encouraging them to eat healthy and exercise.
“A lot of kids, they don’t go outside and play as much — they’ve got their iPhones, their iPads,” the free safety said. “TV is cool, there’s cool stuff nowadays, but you want to encourage kids to do the right thing, to get out there and be happy.”
Cowboys’ defense slipping while team keeps on winning
FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Cornerback Brandon Carr bristled at the suggestion that the Dallas defense had lost its mojo through four straight games without forcing a turnover, or 53 pass attempts by Washington's Kirk Cousins without a sack.
"Are you trying to take it from us?" Carr shot back. "I won't let you get it. It's cool. We got it. Don't worry about it. We'll be all right. Thanks for the concerns."
