FRISCO Kyle Okposo Jersey , Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have claimed safety Ibraheim Campbell and center Adam Redmond off waivers to address two positions that need depth because of injuries.
Dallas also signed defensive end Charles Tapper to the practice squad Sunday, a day after waiving the fourth-round draft pick from 2016.
Campbell, a fourth-year player, was in training camp with Houston before getting waived. The second-year pro Redmond was with Buffalo.
Dallas has just two healthy veterans at safety in Jeff Heath and Kavon Frazier with expected starter Xavier Woods likely to miss next Sunday’s opener at Carolina with a hamstring injury. The Cowboys aren’t sure when center Travis Frederick will return from Guillain-Barre syndrome, a condition that affects the nervous system.
Besides Tapper, the Cowboys brought back seven other preseason cuts to their practice squad: receivers Lance Lenoir and Dres Anderson Jamie Benn Jersey , running backs Jordan Chunn and Darius Jackson, tackle Jake Campos, cornerback Donovan Olumba and linebacker Kyle Queiro. They have two spots open on the practice squad.
LeBron James is inspiring more than just kids with his school in Akron.
Cleveland Browns cornerback T.J. Carrie said Wednesday that the NBA star has motivated him and other athletes to be more active in their communities. "Are we doing enough?" Carrie asked.
Earlier this week, James, who recently left the Cleveland Cavaliers and signed with the Los Angeles Lakers, opened the I Promise School Youth Jamie McGinn Jersey , a year-round facility designed for at-risk kids and their families, in his hometown.
The school is funded by a partnership between Akron City Schools and the LeBron James Family foundation. Along with a curriculum that caters to a student's needs, the school has a food pantry and provides transportation and other educational resources to some of the city's most needy residents. It currently serves only third- and fourth-grade students, but the school plans expand to grades 1-8 by 2020.
Carrie, who signed with the Browns as a free agent in March after four seasons with Oakland, said James' efforts lead him to want to do more. Two years ago Scott Darling Jersey , the 28-year-old launched his own youth foundation.
"I'm talking to my team now," he said. "OK, LeBron's doing this, we're not on his level, but the level that we're on, what can we do to achieve and make a huge difference within the community out here?"
Carrie said some of his teammates have discussed ways in which they can help others.
Carrie also has Ohio connections. The California native played at Ohio University before being drafted by the Raiders in 2014.
Although James is leaving after his second stint with the Cavaliers Marcus Foligno Jersey , Carrie believes his work in Ohio remains.
"LeBron has done an amazing job here in the state of Ohio, period," Carrie said. "It sets precedents for what we should do as athletes on how we are a role model to a lot of kids that we may not know, that we may not see but that know us."
