To make room for Amari Cooper, Brice Butler will be released. He signed in September but did not have a catch and barely played when he was active.

As the Cowboys enter their bye week, they are scheduled to have two brief practices on Wednesday and Thursday and then have four days off before they get begin their preparation for the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 5. Amari Cooper had been in the concussion protocol after getting hurt in Oakland's last game against Seattle in England.

Here's what Jason Garrett had to say about Amari Cooper prior to the Cowboys playing Oakland last December: “Obviously highly regarded coming out and not a surprise to anybody who's studied him that he was going to be this good this quickly,” Garrett said. “Really a complete player. Does everything you would ask a receiver to do. Great route runner. Got great speed, quickness, acceleration. Can catch the ball, run after the catch. He's just a really good football player. Well trained at Alabama obviously but transitioned smoothly and doesn't surprise us one bit that he's been the impact player that he's been over the first couple years.”

In giving up a first-round pick for Amari Cooper, the Cowboys are further casting their lot with Dak Prescott as their quarterback of the future. If the Cowboys were going to be in the quarterback market in next year's draft, they would almost have to have a first-round selection to make that sort of pickup. Now the Cowboys have to hope the acquisition of Cooper works out far better than the trade for Roy Williams in 2008 worked out.

After loss, Cowboys at a loss on snap penalty

A first-ever snap penalty for the Cowboys' L.P. Ladouceur pushed a game-tying field goal to 52 yards, and it was then missed by Brett Maher when the ball hit the upright.

Dak Prescott said he was checked for a concussion in the first half after taking a big hit along the sideline on a 5-yard scramble. “I've been hit many times and it was a good solid hit, but I was fine,” Prescott said. “Obviously I got checked for all that. We have the best doctors. They called down for me to get checked again. I was fine.” Prescott said his left hand was dinged on the play but did not affect him in the game.

Only stranger ending to a Cowboys-Redskins' game I've seen than today's 20-17 Dallas loss came in 2006 when Mike Vanderjagt's potential game-winning 35-yard try was blocked, picked up by Sean Taylor and returned 30 yards. A 15-yard facemask penalty moved the ball to the Dallas 29 and Nick Novak made a 47-yarder on an untimed play for a 22-19 Washington win.

Brett Maher had made 16 straight field goal attempts before his game-tying 52-yarder hit the left upright. He said he pulled the kick slightly and the wind may have played a part as it was coming down. A snap infraction penalty moved the attempt from 47 to 52 yards. “That penalty had zero impact on the result of that kick, I can promise you that,” Maher said. “(Snapper L.P. Ladouceur and holder Chris Jones), like they've done all year, they made my job easy and it was the same in that situation. Yeah, I felt like I was very capable of making that kick. Just didn't get it done.”

Cowboys long snapper L.P. Ladouceur said he followed the same pre-snap routine prior to the officials flagging him for a snap infraction prior to the attempted game-tying kick.“I just adjusted down so I could put my hands on the bottom of it so I could snap it in the right direction,” Ladouceur said. “Exact same thing I've been doing for 14 years … I'm not even trying to get him offside. I know the situation. Just too bad.” Brett Maher's attempt went from 47 to 52 yards.
