    September, 15, 2011 Sep 159:55AM CTEmail Print Comments By Todd ArcherIRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys re-signed tight end Martin Rucker to the practice squad.

    The Cowboys could have to make another practice squad move. Wide receiver Teddy Williams had an MRI on his ankle after suffering an injury in Wednesday’s practice. Williams is on crutches.

    I agree. I thought he was outstanding during his role in preseason.

    I'm really happy that we were able to get him back onto the practice squad. I think he could develop into a poor man's Dustin Keller/Aaron Hernandez pass catching type TE for us. I could see find a use for that type of player.

    Heck, Garrett played with Jay Novacek who was a willing but not outstanding blocker.

    Seems like a very good pass catcher to me from what I saw in the preseason. He just may be Bennett's replacement next year. Isn't Bennetts contract up after this year?

    Kind of surprised the Giants didn't go after him.

    Yeah, Rucker had solid hands from the preseason games I watched. Hope he sticks for awhile.
