The Achilles heel for the Dallas Cowboys in the 2013 NFL season is hamstring injuries. So many players, from Miles Austin and Morris Claiborne to Dwayne Harris and Sean Lee, have fallen to hamstring injuries this season. According to the team's website on Dec. 18, Terrance Williams is the latest to fall to an injured hamstring.

Dallas drafted Williams in the 2013 NFL Draft as a possible replacement for Miles Austin down the line. When Austin went down early with a hamstring injury, Williams got a chance to shine. He made a few rookie mistakes, but he proved he was a star on the rise in Dallas.

Now, as Dallas heads into some must win games against the Washington Redskins and Philadelphia Eagles, Williams is questionable and might miss the Redskins game completely. This is one reason that Dallas has signed Michael Surlock, since Williams was working special teams in place of Harris.

With so many players suffering hamstring problems this season, the fingers start to point at the Dallas conditioning staff. It is the conditioning program than is in place to protect players from routine injuries like hamstring problems, and there is something lacking in that area for the Dallas Cowboys.

Jason Garrett said that the team is trying to figure out what they might be doing wrong and what other teams are doing differently. Unfortunately for 2013, that is too little and too late.
