IRVING (AP) – Free agent safety Eric Frampton has been signed by the Dallas Cowboys, who placed starter Barry Church on injured reserve.

The moves Tuesday officially end Church’s season. He ruptured his Achilles tendon in Sunday’s 16-10 victory over Tampa Bay.

Frampton is primarily a special teams player.

In 76 career games the past five seasons, including all 16 games last year for Minnesota, Frampton had four tackles on defense, all in one game. He had 61 tackles on special teams.

Drafted by Oakland in 2007, Frampton was cut at the end of his rookie training camp and signed by Detroit. He played five games for the Lions early in the 2007 season before being released and claimed on waivers by Minnesota, where he played 41/2 seasons before being released Aug. 31.
