In what could be a great stroke of misfortune, the Cowboys’ may have just lost another offensive lineman.
Left guard Kyle Kosier limped off the practice field in Oxnard on Wednesday and will have an MRI on his left knee, but the team believes that Kosier may have suffered a sprained MCL. This is less than a week after Marc Colombo was carted off the field with a knee injury, which would require arthroscopic surgery.
Kosier may be out 4-6 weeks with the injury, and will miss Saturday’s preseason match-up against San Diego. In the worst case scenario, he could miss the season opener in Washington. It was thought initially that Colombo would miss 2-4 weeks, but after undergoing knee surgery Monday, it appears now that he will return earlier.
Kosier missed most of the 2008 season with a string of injuries, beginning with a broken foot, and suffice it to say, his absence was felt. He returned, and was arguably the most consistent offensive lineman on the team in 2009.
Back-up Montrae Holland will replace Kosier against the Chargers.
