Gary Guyton’s career as a Dallas Cowboy was short-lived.
The Cowboys have released Guyton, who formerly played four years with New England. Guyton had been signed by Dallas Wednesday and had practiced all week. But with CB Mike Jenkins hurting with a back injury, the Cowboys called up Vincent Agnew from the practice squad and cut Guyton to make room on the roster for Agnew.
Guyton’s release does not mean LB Dan Connor (stinger) will be able to play this Sunday vs. the division-rival Eagles in Philadelphia, as Connor is listed as “doubtful” on the NFL’s late-week injury list.
As for Jenkins, he underwent an MRI after having mid-week back spasms and was extremely limited in practice all week.
Agnew spent training camp with the Dolphins before being released and signed to the Cowboys’ practice squad on Oct. 16.
