Left guard Connor Williams to have knee scope, Cowboys hopeful he’ll be back soon

Another injury to report.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys have had some issues along the offensive line this season, so much so that they fired the position coach in Paul Alexander and promoted Marc Columbo to oversee the group. They now have their first big-time injury there this season (save for Travis Frederick obviously) as Connor Williams is going to have a knee scope and miss some time.

Connor Williams hasn’t exactly played well eight games into his rookie season, but this is far from ideal. The Cowboys problems along the offensive line are not going to be aided by missing a piece of it. Adding Williams’ absence to Travis Frederick’s they are now down to only three of their originally-planned healthy group. Yikes.

Jason Garrett did note that Xavier Su’a-Filo and Adam Redmond will compete for that spot, but there will definitely someone somewhere that wants to put La’el Collins back at left guard. For now the Cowboys are going to have to stomach this and move along as they get ready to play their next game on the road against the Philadelphia Eagles.
