Dallas Holding Off on Sending Waters to IR

Right guard Brian Waters suffered a probably season-ending triceps injury on Sunday



    Right guard Brian Waters is most likely out for the season after suffering a torn triceps in the loss to the Detroit Lions but, because the Cowboys think so highly of what he brings to the team, they’re holding off on sending Waters to the injured reserve until they learn more.

    "We just want to explore every option with him," head coach Jason Garrett said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "He has that kind of impact on our football team, so when you have a guy like that you just want to check every avenue before you make any definitive comments, and then we’ll have to make a decision one way or another here in the next few days."

    The usually optimistic Jerry Jones acknowledged Tuesday that Waters was most likely done for the year, while Waters, reportedly anyway, wants to rehab and play through the injury.

    "We’ll see," Garrett said. "We’ll just see what the final medical evaluation is and what our best move is, and we’ll do that here in the next few days."
