 Arlington,  TX (Sports Network) - The Dallas Cowboys reached the 53-man roster
 limit Saturday by reworking special teams stalwart Danny McCray's contract and
 releasing a pair of veterans, offensive tackle Demetress Bell and wide
 receiver Anthony Armstrong.
 
 Other notable moves for Dallas including safety Matt Johnson's move to the
 injured reserve list along with the releases of wide receiver Danny Coale,
 quarterback Alex Tanney and cornerbacks Sterling Moore and Micah Pellerin.
 
 Johnson, a fourth-round pick of the Cowboys in 2012, has yet to suit up for a
 regular-season game due to injuries.
 
 Others players waived by the Cowboys included safety Jakar Hamilton, wide
 receiver Tim Benford, running back Kendial Lawrence, offensive lineman Kevin
 Kowalski, offensive tackle Edawn Coughman, defensive ends Jabari Fletcher and
 Thaddeus Gibson, linebacker Taylor Reed, cornerback Xaiver Brewer, offensive
 guard Ray Dominguez, defensive tackle Jerome Long, defensive end Jason Vega
 and linebackers Caleb McSurdy, Cameron Lawrence and Brandon Magee.
 
 The Cowboys open the regular season on Sept. 8, when they host the New York
 Giants.
