How Much Can Dallas Trust Chaz Green As The Starting LG?

With the departure of and the move of La'el Collins to right , there was was suddenly a big hole to fill at the position for the . Opinions varied depending on who you talk to about who should start, but the Cowboys ultimately decided that was the best option. But, how much trust do the Dallas Cowboys actually have in Green to remain the starting LG for the entire season?

Trust is a funny thing. It can take a lifetime to earn, but only a few seconds to lose. So far, Chaz Green has earned the trust of the and was granted the opportunity to become the starting LG for the . Unfortunately, Green's on the field performance has never been the problem. His problem has always been his inability to remain healthy.

Chaz Green has a long list of dating back to his college days at Florida. He basically redshirted his first year with the Dallas Cowboys with a hip , and then was sidelined once again after four games, including two starts, in 2016 with toe and ankle injuries. He has already battled with a shoulder injury and cramps in 2017, which doesn't really inspire a lot of confidence he will be available to start the entire season.

With all of that in mind though, the Dallas Cowboys still believed that Chaz Green was their best option to start at the left position. I'm sure it wasn't an easy decision to make, but I personally believe it was the right one.

I've always believed that Chaz Green was the Dallas Cowboys fifth best offensive lineman. Every time he has had to step up because of injuries he performed really well. It didn't matter if it was at for or . He always stepped up and handled the job regardless of position. Now, he has to seize the opportunity he's being given and become this years starting LG.

He had a pretty solid debut at LG against the last Sunday night (see Kevin Brady's breakdown of Green's Week 1 performance against Giants) and I'm hoping he can build on that momentum against the this week. The Broncos don't have the interior “beef” the Giants did, but that doesn't mean they aren't talented.

Chaz Green has all the talent to become an NFL starter at just about any position on the . The only thing that has held him back so far in his career is injuries. Let's all hope that he is able to put all of that behind him and finally prove why the Dallas Cowboys drafted him in the a few years ago.

Do you think the Cowboys should trust Chaz Green?
