Report: Cowboys G Connor McGovern Suffers Setback Recovering From Torn Pectoral Muscle

The bug has hit the once again. Third-round Guard Connor McGovern has suffered a major setback during his recovery from a torn pectoral muscle that happened during the program according to ’s Todd Archer.

He only participated in two practices after the injury. The hope was for McGovern to challenge for the starting spot, and create a situation where the could have their five best offensive linemen on the field. Now, his entire is in jeopardy even though it’s uncertain if he’ll need to repair this latest bump in the road.

The biggest beneficiary here is backup Guard Xavier Su’a-Filo who started eight games last season in relief of Connor Williams. A likely cut casualty, now he will probably make the final and the active 46-man roster against the on September 8th.

This is a tough break for the out of Penn State who had high hopes of making an immediate impact in 2019. He could be placed on at Saturday’s final and then be put on IR a day later which would allow him to return at some point before seasons end.
