Derrick Dockery latest Cowboy casualty

At some point it is going to be easier to list the names of the Cowboys offensive players who aren’t dealing with injuries than the ones who are in need of medical attention.

For now, though, we’ll stick with the traditional way of dealing with things. The latest addition to the list is Derrick Dockery, who will miss Monday night’s game against the Redskins with a sprained MCL in his right knee and a fractured tibia. He suffered the injury against the 49ers, but, a la Tony Romo, he remained in the game until the end.

Dockery’s injury means that the Cowboys will actually revert back to their starting offensive line from the opening week of the season. Rookie Bill Nagy started at left guard in that game, but missed the 49ers contest with a neck injury that has healed enough for him to get back in the lineup for Week Three. Center Phil Costa missed practice on Thursday with a knee injury, but he is expected to play on Monday night.

All in all, it was wise that coach Jason Garrett downgraded Thursday’s practice to a non-contact session. We’re a couple of injuries away from Michael Irvin starting another reality show to find an entire offense for his old team.

    As soon as he signed with the Cowboys his career and reputation was a casualty.

    “We’re a couple of injuries away from Michael Irvin starting another reality show to find an entire offense for his old team.”

    What’s scary is that Irvin’s show was able to come up with a solid player who held on to a spot and might even start this week unless Bryant and Austin get well real soon.

    The Cowboys might benefit from another show like that. Worst thing that could happen would be to have a practice squad player.

    What doesn’t kill you,only makes you stronger. Time for jason Garrett to measure the “metal” of his team. So far young line has been ok,, corners on defensa have survived. NO PITY PARTY’S. Speaks volume for the future under this coach…………
