Alston to IR; Norris promoted


Linebacker Jon Alston was placed on injured reserve after missing last week’s game with residual symptoms from a concussion, with rookie fourth-round pick Slade Norris taking his place on the roster.

Norris is inactive for today’s game against Dallas, as is David Nixon, the linebacker who was promoted from the practice squad last week. Both are sitting because Isaiah Ekejuiba, who did not practice because of an ankle injury during the week is active and will play.

Also inactive are linemen Erik Pears and Khalif Barnes and wide receivers Javon Walker, Nick Miller and Todd Watkins. Charlie Frye is the third quarterback.

In another transaction, John Bowie, the fourth-round draft pick from the Randy Moss deal, was waived off injured reserve and is free to sign with another team.

    JR had no business starting for us this year. You know it. The world knows it. The only reason is cuz of Al Davis. If it was Bill Parcells, JR would have been referred to as Mrs. Russell…AND YOU KNOW IT.

    T Scott is being used very wisely in several fronts. at DE/SLB it’s an excellent scheme and gameplan. It has Romo confused as well as their line.
