Cowboys News: Another offensive lineman likely to lose for the season

Report: Matt Waletzko to undergo shoulder surgery and likely to miss rest of season – Charean Williams, Pro Football Talk

The Dallas Cowboys’ depth of tackle will take another hit. Rookie left tackle Matt Waletzko will be absent for the remainder of the season. The Cowboys should hope Tyron Smith can make a return sooner rather than later.

The Cowboys added offensive tackle Matt Waletzko to the practice report Thursday with a shoulder injury. It’s probably his last practice session of his rookie season.

Waletzko subluxated his left shoulder For the third time in the past year, Michael Gehlken from the Dallas morning news reports. Waletzko will undergo shoulder surgery to repair the partial dislocation, which is expected to put him on season-ending injured reserve.

Waletzko first injured his shoulder in a game against Illinois State last November while playing for North Dakota. He was injured again on July 28 at training camp. He missed most of training camp before returning to play the preseason finals against the Seahawks.

The Cowboys made Waletzko a fifth-round draft selection this spring. He played 10 special team snaps and only one on offense as one of six offensive linemen on a 1-yard touchdown that ran wide Ezekiel Elliott against the giants.

veteran Jason Peters is the left backup tackle.

Micah Parsons: It’s ‘Shark Week’, ‘1 Lion’ & ‘I Want My Interception’ in Cowboys vs. Detroit – Adam Schultz, Cowboys Country

Micah Parsons knows the Cowboys’ defense against the Eagles last week didn’t live up to their own standards. They’re out for blood and unfortunately for the Lions, they’re the prey this week.

Parsons, a leader of the 4-2 Cowboys, shows no disrespect to the 1-4 Lions, just as he was enjoying himself with returning Dak Prescott when he told the QB on Thursday’s practice field that the Cowboys are still one defensive “show”.

Detroit’s Parsons said, “They’ve got a great front line everywhere, a dominant running game, a great group of defenders. We have to go out there and just try to stop the run and be resilient out there.

A truth about Detroit: Despite their record, the Lions have done a good job of keeping Jared Goff going by allowing just seven sacks in five games — a joint league-best along with the Chargers.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, lead the NFL in sacks, 24 total.

lion vs lion. “Shark Week.” Dak’s return. And an interception of Micah? The Sunday stage at AT&T Stadium needs to be filled.

Blue Chips: Identifying Detroit’s Top Seven Players – Bucky Brooks, Dallascowboys.com

A quick look at the opponent for Sunday.

If you ask old-school scouts what it takes to field a championship contender, they’ll be quick to tell you that it takes eight to 12 blue-chip players to compete for a title. This premise has been the standard for general managers across the league, and I rely on it to identify the players to watch on game day.

With that in mind, let’s identify the players who will be eyeing the Cowboys’ next opponent. Here’s a quick look at the Detroit Lions’ current blue chip players.

Aidan Hutchinson, Rand

The powerful pass rusher was almost touted as a disruptive factor from the edge. Hutchinson leads the Lions in sacks (3.0) and QB hits (6) as a designated pass rusher from the edge in a defense designed to apply pressure early and often from all angles. With the Lions building their pressure systems around Hutchinson’s talents, the No. 2 overall pick is a destructive force at the center of attack.

Jeff Okudah, CB

Former first-round picks have shown promise as a ‘lockdown’ corner this season. Okudah has successfully shadowed some of the top wideouts (SEE: Justin Jefferson, AJ Brown and Devonta Smith) in the Lions’ blitz-heavy man coverage tactic. Though the pro has thrived in his third year this season, he’s still prone to double moves and deep shots on the periphery.

Jared Goff, QB

The veteran passer regained his All-Star form in his second season with the Lions. A fast, rhythmic passer with outstanding instinct and awareness, Goff shatters defense with pinpoint shots using “catch, rock and throw” concepts designed to get the ball out of his hands quickly. He has compiled a 109.5 passer rating on quick throws with a 69.1% completion rate and a 7:1 touchdown-to-interception ratio on such passes. Considering Goff also ranks fifth in passing touchdowns (11) despite playing just five games, the veteran passer is more than capable of torching a secondary when he has time in the pocket.

CeeDee Lamb on how Dak Prescott looks after a five-week break: ‘He’s back’ – Clark Dalton, Yardbarker

With the offensive struggling for Dallas lately, nobody should be happier to see Dak Prescott than CeeDee Lamb. The #1 recipient is certainly happy to see his man.

Dallas wideout CeeDee Lamb smiled when asked about Dak Prescott’s upcoming return.

“He looks like Dak. He’s back,” he said in a press conference on Thursday. “He made some great shots in one-on-one and team phases.”

Perhaps Lamb is excited because he expects his numbers to increase.

Over two seasons, Lamb produced big numbers with Prescott and became one of his favorite targets. He scored eight touchdowns and caught 104 passes for more than 1,000 yards while playing with Prescott.

Despite playing five games with backup quarterback Cooper Rush, Lamb produced a solid stat line. He was averaging 76 yards per game and catching 31 goals. He’s on track to finish with a career-high 94 receptions.

Prescott, who can extend plays with his arm strength and legs, creates more opportunities for Lamb and the entire passing game.

The Cowboys are 4-2, but they need to expand their playbook. They average 182 passing yards per game, 27th in the NFL.

Cowboys rookie tight ends making the most of Dalton Schultz’s injury situation – Lauren Barash, The Landry Hat

Dalton Schultz was brought back after a career season. In 2022, he was beaten up and didn’t live up to expectations. That didn’t stop two rookies from taking his place.

While it’s never ideal to have a start or someone missing time through injury, the Cowboys have done a great job of securing a depth that used to not really exist in the tight end position. In the absence of Schultz 2022 draft pick Jake Ferguson and UDFA Peyton Hendershot took full advantage of the snaps they got. In fact, they can give him a snap fight once he’s back to full health.

Both rookie tight ends and deep-piece Sean McKeon made important contributions against the Eagles. In fact, Ferguson had an impressive, borderline-basketball-looking move that earned him his first NFL touchdown.

The Wisconsin product started in Schultz’s place, and to the Joneses’ likely delight, it looked like a future that starts at the end (which would save them big bucks in 2023). Ferguson had four catches, 40 receiving yards and a touchdown against one of the best teams in football with a backup quarterback.

He was also a multifaceted threat. Ferguson showed his speed as a receiver, his blocking ability and his quick hands. His touchdown even brought the Cowboys to a field goal against Philly.

Indiana’s UDFA also had an increase in its snap count. To his impressive hurdle movement he got more moments to shine with Schultz in the game against the New York Giants. He was involved in 61% of the offensive snaps and half of the special teams snaps. Hendershot also caught two passes for 22 yards.
