IRVING, Texas (AP) _ The Dallas Cowboys claimed long snapper Jeff Grau off waivers from Washington on Wednesday.
Grau will play in the preseason finale Thursday night against Jacksonville. He’s trying to win the job opened by an injury to Jeff Robinson, who was signed to solidify the position after problems filling the job last season.
Grau was a seventh-round pick from UCLA by the Redskins.
To clear a roster spot for him, Dallas released linebacker Louis Mackey.
Mackey spent most of last season on the practice squad, then broke a bone in his left leg in his first game and went on injured reserve.
