Cowboys CB Chidobe Awuzie Battling Minor Knee Injury

, one of the projected starting cornerbacks for the 2018 , missed last night's Blue White Scrimmage with a knee . Thankfully, the problem appears to be minor and should not restrict him for long.

Awuzie injured the injured the knee during practice on Saturday. According to the team's official website, he was able to participate in individual drills yesterday but did not take part in the team portion.

It remains to be seen if the injury will keep Chido out of the team's opener on Thursday night. Dallas will head from in , CA down to Santa Clara to meet the 49ers.

Granted, Awuzie was unlikely to play big minutes in the first preseason game. Few starters ever do.

In his absence, third-year CB is likely to get the start on Thursday night. He played Chido's spot last night in the scrimmage.

Thankfully, Awuzie's issue shouldn't keep him out long. The Cowboys have avoided any major so far in their training camp.

Of course, I just jinxed that and will probably blow out every ligament in his body now.

Sorry if this is nitpicking, but it’s odd to say Dallas will be traveling “down” to Santa Clara when it’s north of Oxnard.
