CB Chidobe Awuzie Expected Back Soon

The competition at for the is one of the more intriguing battles in . , a starter for the last several seasons, is not only entering a contract year but he's dealing with rookie being on his heels for a starting role.

Diggs has gotten more first team work with Awuzie nursing a minor leg . However, according to the team's new Coach Maurice Linguist, Awuzie is expected back on the field soon.

If you watch Awuzie on film he actually has really good position on most routes he covers but his inability to turn his head around became a major issue in 2019. A switch to the safety position started floating around a few months ago and Awuzie has gotten some work there in addition to playing outside and slot corner.

Awuzie had been showing signs of improvement before his injury. Now, with the extra time off it'll be interesting to see if he can continue progressing and not let Diggs get snag the top corner spot.

Regardless if he's at corner or it's paramount that Awuzie takes the next step in 2020 as the Cowboys look to improve on their league-low seven interceptions in 2019.
