The Dallas Cowboys lost starting left guard Bill Nagy for the season on Sunday, as Nagy suffered a fractured right ankle in the team’s loss to the New England Patriots in Foxboro.
Nagy, a seventh round pick out of Wisconsin who won the starting job out of training camp, suffered the injury while lead blocking for a Martellus Bennett catch-and-run in the fourth quarter. He will most likely be replaced by rookie guard/center out of Toledo, Kevin Kowalski, unless reserve guard Derrick Dockery quickly recovers from a nagging MCL sprain.
Kowalski’s most memorable action in a Cowboys’ uniform thus far came in the team’s third preseason game--the so-called “dress rehearsal game”--when he started at center in place of the injured Phil Costa and the soon-to-be-released Andre Gurode.
"I'm going to do everything I can to be prepared," said Kowalski, per the Dallas Morning News. "It's tough for [Nagy]. I hope he's able to come back and play again because the kid works hard, and he absolutely deserves it."
