Cowboys bring back Jerome Long, put Ben Bass on IR

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have signed defensive tackle Jerome Long and placed defensive end Ben Bass on season-ending injured reserve with a dislocated shoulder.

The Cowboys brought back Long on Saturday, a week after he was among the final cuts. He provides depth on a line that is likely to be without two starters for the opener against the New York Giants on Sunday night. There are now two backups on injured reserve.

Bass worked as a starter early in training camp a year after making the roster out of rookie camp. He battled injuries throughout camp this year before injuring his left shoulder in practice Thursday.

Long spent most of last season on Kansas City's practice squad after getting drafted in the seventh round.
