The Cowboys are swimming in injuries as we just found out yesterday that Brandon Knight, who was replacing Tyron Smith, had knee surgery and will miss at least a few weeks. That means that this week Dallas will be down to its third choice for left tackle.
One possible candidate for that spot is Cam Erving. He was hurt in the first game of the season, but coach Mike McCarthy reported earlier today that his knee is fine, so as long as he is over the illness he had a few days ago, he will be back in the rotation. Today, he was able to practice.
Cameron Erving was able to practice Wednesday after he was sick Monday, which prevented him from being added to the active roster. He remains on injured reserve, but the expectation is he will be called up to play Sunday at Washington. The Cowboys will be without left tackle Brandon Knight (knee) and Erving could work into that spot despite not playing since the season opener.
We’re still waiting on the Cowboys injury report. They were doing a walk-through practice today so it would be an estimated one.
The Cowboys injury report finally came out and it has a bit of concern with it as Aldon Smith was out with a neck injury. Zack Martin remains out with his concussion.
Here is Washington’s injury report.
