Cowboys guard Mackenzy Bernadeau underwent a surgical procedure on his right shoulder this week, David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports, the third surgery he’s had since coming to Dallas last offseason with a four-year, $11 million deal.
Per the initial report, the Cowboys are hopeful that Bernadeau will be ready to participate in organized team activities when they open in early-May, but that isn’t a sure thing.
Bernadeau had an inconsistent first season with the Cowboys in 2012, but he did start all 16 games, including a couple at center--and owner and general manager Jerry Jones remains high on the veteran, as well as Nate Livings, the other starting guard picked up by Dallas in free agency a year ago.
“Bernadeau’s athletic ability last year didn’t show like we thought,” Jones said last month. “Given a little better health in the off-season, we ought to see some of his athletic ability.
“It didn’t show at all.”
