Cowboys lose O-line depth after Colts claim Dakoda Shepley off waivers, end his season

The Cowboys waived Shepley on Monday after signing him to the 53-man roster Saturday.

The Cowboys hoped to re-sign an offensive lineman to their practice squad Tuesday.

Instead, his season is over.

Guard/center Dakoda Shepley was signed Saturday to the 53-man roster and played seven snaps Sunday against the Washington Commanders. The Cowboys waived him Monday, planning for him to rejoin the practice squad, but the Indianapolis Colts intervened and claimed him.

The Colts did not qualify for the playoffs.

So, rather than work alongside Cowboys teammates at practice Wednesday and prepare for Monday evening’s first-round game at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Shepley won’t practice again until the Colts’ spring workout program. He also loses any postseason pay that he stood to collect in Dallas.

The development hurts the Cowboys’ interior line depth, too.

Guard/center Matt Farniok (hamstring) resumed practice last week and could be activated from injured reserve soon. Additionally, Brock Hoffman and Alec Lindstrom are options at the practice-squad level. Lindstrom, however, would need to be activated from a Reserve list; he’s missed several weeks with a back injury.
