Mackenzy Bernadeau focusing on New York Giants

The Dallas Cowboys have been struggling along the inside of the line for a while. During the 2012 offseason they signed guards Nate Livings and Mackenzy Bernadeau in hopes that they would fix the line problem. It seems like ideally the Cowboys wouldn’t have either player starting in the 2013 season.

The Cowboys have been practicing Ron Leary at left guard and just signed Brian Waters to play right guard. Waters didn’t get into practices until this week and most likely won’t be ready for the game. Nevertheless Bernadeau is not looking over his shoulder at Waters but focusing on the task at hand instead: the New York Giants.

“I’m here to work,” Bernadeau said. “He’s a great addition to our team. He’s a great player, and I’ve learned a lot from him just speaking to him. He’s a great guy. But I’m focused on the Giants.”

Bernadeau missed practices last week because of an ankle injury but he was not on this week’s injury report.

“It’s the best I’ve felt in a while,” Bernadeau said, “so I’m excited for the game.”

If Bernadeau plays well in the season opener it could make for a tough decision for the Dallas Cowboys, a problem they’d love to have. It seems like Bernadeau is just keeping Waters seat warm for now.

    Another injury prone player so expect Waters to be starting sooner than later.
