BREAKING: Terence Steele out for the season with a torn ACL

The Cowboys win yesterday came with a cost. According to multiple sources, starting is out for the year after his MRI revealed a torn ACL.

The occurred when Steele stepped on 's foot in the second quarter.

He was helped off the field and went to the locker room. The news was confirmed at around 11 a.m. CT. Monday.

Steele has been one of the best offensive linemen for the Cowboys this season. What hurts the most is that they are getting back this week, and now they lose Steele.

The Cowboys first went with , but after being beaten several times by the Texans' , turned back the clock. Peters has not played RT since 2005, but he did an AWESOME job. He was great on the 98-yard touchdown drive that won them the game.

With Steele out for the season, the Cowboys could have two future guys playing both tackle spots.

We could see a few different rotations, but the way Peters looked on the final drive, there is no reason not to give him a chance. Ball looked horrible in the snaps he was given.

If Peters can play anything like he did for the last drive Sunday, I won't worry to much right now, but we need to see if he can still play at a high level for four quarters.

The Cowboys are hitting that point in the season where start to play a part in being successful, right as they get and Tyron Smith back, they lose and now Steele.

The early reports say Steele should be good to go by the time rolls around next season, I just hate this for him. He was an outstanding season. One of the cornerstones of the Cowboys team.

Too bad for Terrence Steele. He’s been thru a lot, but he continued to work and seemed to maintain a good positive attitude. His improvement was obvious and we’re going to miss him in the home stretch. Thank goodness for Jason Peters. Hopefully he can continue to man the right tackle spot the rest of the way. May be time to get rid of Josh Ball and certainly time to get rid if that penalty magnet Kelvin Joseph. I hope Jerry and Stephen Jones will FIRE Kellen Moore after this season. He continues to out this offense in bad positions and acts like Dak Prescott is Patrick Mahomes. Prescott’s best friend is a punishing ground game. Let the 3 backs do the heavy lifting. Elliott, Pollard, and Davis can keep this offense humming if Kellen Moore would allow them to get going. Wish McCarthy would be more forceful in his approach.

From an UDFA to starting Tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, he has come a long way, and I wish him a good and speedy recovery. Hopefully Peters can play at a good level moving forward.
