Dallas Cowboys G Nate Livings sidelined for a while

The Dallas Cowboys interior offensive line has been of some concern for the past few seasons. The Dallas Cowboys addressed it with their first round draft pick by selecting center/guard Travis Frederick. He’ll spend time at center and will be Tony Romo’s 6th center in his tenure with the Cowboys.

Livings didn’t practice Thursday as he nursed a knee injury. He sat out a few of the first training camp sessions with a foot injury. The Dallas Cowboys have 5 guards, yes 5, nursing injuries: Mackenzy Bernadeau, Kevin Kowalski, Ryan Cook and Ray Dominguez.

Livings had surgery in the offseason on his right knee but quickly re-injured it in OTAs. The Cowboys might be forced to replace him despite how well he played last season.

“He does have a health situation,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News. “He hasn’t practiced a lot in training camp and he is kind of managing his way through a couple of different deals. So we will just manage him day by day and see how he does. It’s still very early….We have to make sure we do a good job managing our guys, especially the older guys that are banged up a little bit.”
