Cowboys guard Ronald Leary has been unable to capitalize on the opportunity presented by starting left guard Nate Livings’ knee injury, because he himself suffered a knee injury that required arthroscopic surgery last week. But the second-year Memphis product is confident that he’ll return in great shape.
"You want to get out there and get these reps, but I'll be alright, I'll be back," Leary said, per ESPN Dallas. "Every time you have a MRI, it sees everything, you worry about that."
After undergoing the knee scope, Leary will most likely miss the rest of the preseason, but he hopes to return in time to play--if Livings isn’t back healthy by this point--in the regular season opener against the Giants on September 8.
"I'm not where I want to be, and I just want to build on it," Leary said. "It's not a setback. I'll be back."
