Veteran guard Brian Waters’ last start was in the New England Patriots’ Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants. It looks like his next will be on Sunday, against the San Diego Chargers.
Waters, who signed with the Cowboys on September 3 after spending all of 2012 out of football, has spent the last two weeks platooning at right guard with Mackenzy Bernadeau. But he’s been taking first team reps solo in practice this week, and it looks like he’ll go out with the first team and stay there against San Diego.
“That’s the goal, to try to make it through the whole game,” Waters said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We’ll see how it goes. Mack (Bernadeau) will be ready to go. I think we’re all confident he’ll be ready to go if anything happens.”
Even though he’s ready to return to a starting job this week, Waters still believes he has plenty of room for improvement.
“I’ve still got a ways to go,” Waters said. “That’s the way I’m going to always look at it. I’m going to be my hardest critic. I still feel like I have a ways to go.”
