Cowboys Even Thinner at OT After Ty Nsekhe’s Hospitalization

    Already scrambling after ' was announced last Friday, the will now be without a key depth player at offensive . Veteran was hospitalized last night following heat-related illness and has now been declared out for Week 2.

    Thankfully for the Cowboys they'd already settled on Terence Steele as the starting right tackle for Sunday's date with the . But while not as disruptive as it could've been, losing Nsekhe now leaves Dallas very thin at two critical positions.

    , who's primarily played backup tackle for Dallas the last two seasons, will serve as the swing tackle in Nsekhe's absence.

    It's been quite a week for roster problems since the Cowboys' loss to Tampa Bay. Following Collins' suspension news we had DE go on the COVID list, break his foot in practice, and now both starting safeties working through injury issues.

    Missing La'el at is a huge concern with Los Angeles' to contend with, but at least will be back following last week's absence due to COVID. Even if he doesn't play RT, Martin will be a stabilizing presence for both Steele and .

    Dallas won't have the same opportunity for a “moral victory” this week as they did against the Bucs. Even in defeat the Cowboys earned respect and a brief feelgood swell by nearly upsetting the defending champs on the road.

    Going to 0-2 against the Chargers won't have the same cushion, even with these personnel issues to overcome. If the Cowboys don't get it done this Sunday then there will be a very different mood around the organization in the following days.

    I assume all the Cowboys must be inoculated? Say it ain’t so Mr Jerry? Losing even one more man due to non-inoculation would be unforgivable! Say it ain’t so? You too NFL!


    IMO, there is no such thing as a “moral victory”. A loss is a loss, period. Yes, they played better than expected, BUT getting FOUR TURNOVERS, (especially the one at our two yard line, saving seven points), dominating TOP, throw in Pats penalties and dropped passes, we should have WON.

    I know the Preseason games don’t count, but they do matter. And if you include them, we haven’t won a game yet this year, a dismal 0-5. If we lose to the Chargers, which is certainly possible, this team is obviously not going in the right direction. Too much hype and too many EXCUSES. More intestinal fortitude.

    One glaring excuse by some; Pats “great” front seven and missing Martin, so “best shape” EE suddenly becomes impotent. We can’t run the ball, so let’s abandon it. It’s like a fighter using just one hand. Ridiculous.

    It’s apparent by now, DP CANNOT CARRY THIS TEAM ON HIS BACK. Need to have a more balanced attack. Charger game is a very big game, even at this early stage! Only thing that makes it not a must win, is because of this weak NFC East division.

    Your on point again Vam! We have to be able to run the ball If it’s EE or Pollard. Yes we played hard and fought well against the Bucs but on the score card it’s still an L! We have to bring that momentum and intensity EVERY game to be able to be successful this season! That’s what I’ll be looking for today !!
