The bad news for the Dallas Cowboys continues unabated. Guard Brian Waters is likely done for the season because of a triceps injury according to owner Jerry Jones. On a radio show this morning Jones said it looks like he's done, even though reports are that Waters wants to attempt to play through it. Team officials are telling him not to do that but to get the triceps fixed now.
Waters brought a ton of ability and experience to a Cowboys offensive line that is definitely improved this year. Mackenzy Bernadeau will be the guy filling in for Waters for the rest of the season. That's scary.
In other injury news, reports are that Morris Claiborne will miss a few games with his hamstring injury but that Barry Church is likely to return this week. Also, DeMarco Murray will surely return after the coaching staff held him out of Sunday's game even though he was cleared to play. DeMarcus Ware and Miles Austin are both said to be close to playing, we'll have to wait and see.
The Cowboys will also bring aboard defensive lineman Everette Brown, a second-round pick back in 2009 for the Panthers who has bounced around to a few different teams without making any kind of serious impact.
