The Dallas Cowboys are struggling with injuries along the interior of their offensive line. Ron Leary left the Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, California to head to Dallas to have his injured right knee examined. It could require arthroscopic surgery.
Despite that, the Cowboys aren’t too worried about his injury.
“We don’t think it’s too serious,” head coach Jason Garrett said, via the Dallas Morning News. “We think it can get cleaned up here and he can get back on the practice field in a couple weeks. Again we take those things day by day and it is what we think it is.”
“I’m disappointed for him in the sense he was doing so well, but from what I understand he will have a quick return back,” offensive coordinator Bill Callhan said. “We’re two guards down at that spot, we’ll have to see what we do going forward.”
The Cowboys have pursued guard Brian Waters in the mean time, but there has been no progress. The Cowboys are trying not to get frustrated though.
“You can control what you can control,” Garrett said. “Frustration is not really a good emotion to have.”
Garrett also echoed Callahan’s comments.
“He has had a very good training camp,” Garrett said. “When he started practice, he came on strong and did a nice job for us. We don’t anticipate this being something overly complicated. We think it’s going to be a relatively simple procedure and hopefully he will be back soon enough.”
