The Cowboys were missing a key contributor for this Wednesday’s practice session.
Cowboys offensive tackle Jason Peters was listed as a non-participant due to a hip injury. The former All-Pro left Monday night’s game against the Buccaneers early.
While it’s still early in the week, Peters will have to make significant progress if he is to be ready for Sunday’s game.
In the event that Peters cannot suit up for the Cowboys, they will need rookie Tyler Smith to start at left tackle. Connor McGovern would then slide into left guard.
Veteran tackle Tyrone Smith, meanwhile, is on track to remain at right tackle.
Peters isn’t the only member of the Cowboys struggling with an injury this week. Jayron Kearse is currently nursing a sprained knee. Meanwhile, defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence has injured his foot.
The Cowboys will update their injury report on Thursday. We’ll find out if Peters’ condition improves.
