Ankou had spent 11 days with the Texans after they claimed him off waivers on Oct. 19.

When Cowboys chief operating officer Stephen Jones was on Dallas-Fort Worth 105.3 “The Fan” [KRLD-FM] Friday, he said the club wouldn’t rule out any moves ahead of the Nov. 3 trade deadline.

“I think we kind of made the moves that we were pleased with, and obviously the trade deadline is Tuesday,” Jones said. “We’re still — we got a few things in play. Overall, I think we did what we needed to do in our mind with Coach [Mike] McCarthy and Jerry [Jones] and Will [McClay] and felt like we did the right things there to help our team.”
