A linebacker has been added to the Dallas Cowboys‘ active roster in advance of their Sunday game against the Carolina Panthers.
The Dallas Cowboys have placed defensive lineman Viliami Fehoko on injured reserve and added Rashaan Evans to their active roster this Saturday, according to a statement from the team’s public relations account on X.

Evans, an Alabama native, was chosen by the Tennessee Titans as the 22nd overall pick in 2018. Before agreeing to a one-year contract with the Atlanta Falcons last year, he played with the Titans for the first four years of his career.
Prior to this most recent development, the 28-year-old joined with Dallas’ practice squad in October after recording a career-high 159 tackles (86 solo).
With a 1-8 record against their opponent, the Cowboys are seeking to improve to 7-3 this weekend and should well expect to accomplish so.
