For the second time in three weeks, a key piece of the Dallas Cowboys’ rebuilt offensive line is dealing with an injury.
Left guard Ronald Leary suffered a groin injury in Monday night’s overtime loss to the Washington Redskins and his status for this week’s matchup with the Arizona Cardinals is unclear at the moment, according to head coach Jason Garrett.
“The X-rays were negative, meaning they’re positive for us,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “So we’ll just see how he is. Obviously when you play an offensive line position, having full groin strength is important, your ability to have power and explosiveness. So we’ll see how he is [Wednesday].”
On Monday, Leary was replaced by Mackenzy Bernadeau, last year’s starter at the right guard position. The Cowboys were already down a starter against Washington, as Doug Free was held out with a fractured foot. There’s a chance Free could return against the Cardinals.
