According to a report in the The Dallas Morning News, Akwasi Owusu-Ansah is back with the Cowboys.

The 24-year-old safety, who was most recently a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars, was claimed off waivers Tuesday along with former Tampa Bay punter Jake Rogers during a flurry of activity that included the release of undrafted rookie cornerback Troy Woolfolk.

Owusu-Ansah was selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round in 2010 and was cut last November after the team moved him from defensive back to wide receiver.

Although he started two games for the Jaguars, he never played a defensive snap during the regular season for the Cowboys and was used exclusively on special teams, where he served primarily as a returner during his rookie campaign that was cut short by an ankle injury.

Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray says he’s 100% and ready to go.

“I’m back 100 percent,” the running back said Sunday at Cowboys Fan Fest, an event the club’s marketing department organized to help make up for the team moving its training camp from San Antonio to Oxnard, Calif.

Murray’s record-setting rookie season was cut short last year when he fractured his right ankle in the first quarter of a 37-34 loss to the New York Giants on Dec. 11. He had surgery the next day and missed the final three games.

Before the injury, the Oklahoma alum was on track to eclipse Tony Dorsett’s club rookie record of 1,007 rushing yards. Murray finished with a team-high 897 yards, including a franchise-record 253 on 25 carries in a 34-7 romp over St. Louis in Week 7.

Now that’s what I call awesomeness!
