Deante Burton: Gets the call

The Cowboys elevated Burton from the 53-man roster via the practice squad Sunday.

Analysis: Burton will take the place of Chidobe Awuzie, who was placed on IR on Saturday with a hamstring injury. Burton saw action in three games with the Cowboys in 2019, seeing just three defensive snaps, so he'll likely assume a similar role if he suits up in Week 3.

Deante Burton: From Colts to Cowboys

Dallas signed Burton off the Colts' practice squad Wednesday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: Burton will fill Anthony Brown's roster spot with the Cowboys. The 25-year-old cornerback has yet to play a down in 2019, so Burton need not be considered for a fantasy roster spot at this stage of his career.
