The Dallas Cowboys should have a full roster for Sunday’s matchup against the Washington Football Team. On Tuesday afternoon, the team officially activated offensive tackle Terence Steele from the Reserve/COVID-19 list.
Steele was unable to play against the New Orleans Saints last Thursday due to a positive test. La’el Collins was the right tackle in the starting line-up.
Although it is not clear who will be starting at right tackle for the Cowboys this Sunday, Steele and Collins are two options available to the coaching staff.
The @dallascowboys made the following transactions on Tuesday:
Activated from Reserve/COVID-19:
– T Terence Steele
– TE Blake Jarwin (Restored back to Reserve/Injured)
– T.J. Vasher (Restored back to Reserve/NFI)
Restored to Practice Squad:
– WR Robert Foster

Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, said that the offense might use six offensive linemen in his appearance on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday morning. This means that Collins and Steele could be part of the Cowboys game plan.
“I think it’s the best we’ve been all year,” Jones said, via the Cowboys’ official website. ” You’ve got an improved Collins. You’ve got a Steele we know and are very confident he can play at the right tackle and play well here. We will use the fact that we’ve got Collins at his best this year and Steele and use that as a way to help our running game. We will do that. What that lets us do, relative to any other formations that what we want, we’ll use a big guy in that normally you’d have a tight end there. That will help us out.”
Regardless of who begins at right tackle first, the cowboys should be content with their current situation.
Later this week, we’ll learn who the Cowboys’ starting right tackle will be.
