Late in the season it’s not so rare to come up with more than seven inactive players.

In attempting to figure out the Dallas Cowboys’ 46-man active roster for Sunday night’s game against the Oakland Raiders, it’s easy to come up with more than seven players to sit.

First, cornerback Orlando Scandrick (back), defensive end David Irving (concussion), linebacker Justin Durant (concussion) and wide receiver Brice Butler (foot) have been ruled out because of injury.

The Cowboys also don’t need a third tailback (Trey Williams) or a fourth tight end (Blake Jarwin).

You can make the case they don’t need an eighth offensive lineman (Chaz Green), ninth defensive lineman (Daniel Ross) or eighth defensive back (Bene Benwikere), too.

So when you get down to the final few spots, who brings the most value?

Let’s start with Benwikere. He has become a pretty big part of the special-teams unit, but if something were to happen to Chidobe Awuzie, Jourdan Lewis or Anthony Brown at cornerback, Benwikere can step in and play.

Given the presence of Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, Ross makes some sense because he can bring size to the defensive line at 305 pounds. Ross has yet to play since the Cowboys claimed him off the Kansas City Chiefs’ practice squad, but his addition was made with a long-term view.

With La’el Collins getting two practices in for the first time in three weeks because of a back injury, Green would seem to be the most dispensable. With Byron Bell already active as the swing tackle, Green’s only real function without two injuries up front would be on the field goal protection unit. Is that enough value to dress on gameday?

Datone Jones opened 2017 with the Minnesota Vikings, but a shoulder injury led to a settlement on Sept. 8. He spent one week with the Detroit Lions in October before joining the San Francisco 49ers.

He played three games for San Francisco and made six tackles.

On Sunday, he joined the Dallas Cowboys, his fourth team in three months, with a two-year deal.

“I’ve been on multiple teams, bouncing around; it’s kind of hard finding a groove,” Jones said. “It’s kind of easy to get down and give up on yourself and start thinking about life after ball. For me, this opportunity has been a blessing for me and my family. All I can do is come in here and compete and challenge myself to be the best Datone Jones I can be and create a competitive environment inside the defensive line room.”

Jones was a first-round pick of the Green Bay Packers in 2013. He played in 59 games with seven starts and had nine sacks. The Cowboys liked Jones in prepping for the 2013 draft, although they did not have a first-round grade on him.

“Really just want to get him in the mix, want to get him out at practice and just see how he fits,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “We feel like he has some versatility in our evaluation of him when he came out of school. And so we’ll just see how he’ll practices and where he can fit in our defensive front.”

The Cowboys have 10 defensive linemen on the roster with the addition of Jones. They recently added Daniel Ross from the Kansas City Chiefs practice squad, but he has yet to be active for a game.

By signing Jones to a two-year deal, the Cowboys can almost get a free look at him in the final five weeks of this season and use the offseason program and training camp to get a longer assessment at him if they choose.

Jones is just hoping to fit in as quickly as possible.

“For me, I don’t want to do anything to shift those blocks, like Jenga, you know? I don’t want those blocks to fall,” Jones said. “I just want to keep helping this team build and bring my competitive environment into the defensive line room so they know I’m serious, I’m here to work and I’m ready to get out there.”
