The Dallas Cowboys are still working on getting their offensive line in order, and received some good news for this weekend's game. According to ESPN on Sept. 13, Brian Waters will play in his first game since signing with Dallas against the Kansas City Chiefs.
This is a homecoming for Waters. After starting his career in Dallas as a rookie free agent he moved on to Kansas City where he became a multi-time All-Pro offensive lineman. He last played in 2011 as a member of the New England Patriots.
Dallas has suffered through offensive line problems for the last two seasons, causing numerous problems including broken ribs for Tony Romo. In the first game of 2013, Romo has already taken one severe hit - again to his ribs.
While Waters time will be limited, and he probably won't start, his presence alone is a promising sign for the Dallas' offense. Waters, more than anything, brings his experience into play. The Dallas offensive line is very young and he can help teach them a lot on how to play the game right.
Waters will likely share time with right guard Mackenzy Bernadeau, working as a rotation at the position. Dallas did the same thing in 2012 with Doug Free and Jeremy Parnell, but this one should be much better with Waters.
Brian Waters return will be for the Dallas Cowboys vs. Kansas City Chiefs game at noon on Sunday.
