Even before the Dallas Cowboys endured a host of injuries in Sunday night's season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams, including to swing tackle Cameron Erving, offensive line depth was a question.
First, La'el Collins was sent to the IR during preseason camp, and now following the loss of Erving, there is a question as to whether or not Tyron Smith will be ready to go for this Sunday's home opener against the Atlanta Falcons.
The Cowboys seem to recognize that shortcoming, however, because in Friday's visit with 105.3 the Fan's GBAG Nation, Cowboys COO Stephen Jones said that the Cowboys were already fast at work looking at adding some depth to the position.
"Obviously when you've got five of those guys that you need to have to start with, and then each team has another nine or 10, you're getting deep once you start the season and you start to lose some guys, looking for guys who can do the job at this level," Jones told GBAG Nation. "So it is a challenge, but at the same time its one that we'll certainly embrace and move forward with. We've got an offensive lineman in here today, working out, and may be looking at having another one coming in."
Jones did not mention who the Cowboys had worked out so far this week, or who they are still planning on working out before Sunday. However, the Cowboys will need to find that answer sooner, rather than later, with pass rushers Takk McKinley and Dante Fowler coming into AT&T Stadium on Sunday.
