Cowboys Dump Injured Rossum

    The dismissal of New London football coach Jack Cochran will not be on the Board of Education's agenda Thursday night.

    The Dallas Cowboys dumped Allen Rossum who never did recover from a hamstring injury.

    The Dallas native injured his hammy on his first play as a member of the Cowboys. He returned the kick October 25 a grand total of 16 yards before leaving with the injury.

    Rossum became expendable when Patrick Crayton returned a punt for a touchdown against the Falcons and did it again a week later against Seattle.

    Felix Jones became the primary kickoff returner when he came back from a knee injury.

    Cornerback Cletis Gordon was signed Monday to take Rossum's spot on the roster.
