Dak Prescott might be without one of his primary protectors in Week 1.
Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that starting right tackle La’el Collins will miss practice again Friday.
“We’re in a holding pattern,” McCarthy said.
Collins has been sidelined for the past week with a neck stinger, an injury that first arose during training camp. The vacant reps have gone to reserve tackles Ty Nsekhe and Terence Steele, whom McCarthy said will be ready to start next Thursday’s NFL Kickoff Game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers should Collins not be available.
Injuries, of course, have been a recurring issue for Dallas’ offensive line in recent seasons. Collins sat out the entire 2020 campaign with a hip injury.
