Cowboys Reportedly Suffered Significant Special Teams Injury

The Dallas Cowboys extended its winning streak to three games on Sunday, but lost their long snapper.

Nick Eatman reports that Cowboys long snapper Jake McQuaide was injured in a match against the Washington Commanders.

McQuaide will most likely be out for the remainder of the season.

Eatman said that Dallas had been working out snappers on Tuesday. According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero the Cowboys have signed Tucker Addington and Matt Overton to their practice squad.

ESPN’s Todd Archer confirmed Eatman’s original report.

McQuaide signed in 2021 with the Cowboys. McQuaide spent 10 years with the Los Angeles Rams before he made this move.

This is a serious blow for Dallas’ special teams. McQuaide is a trusted player on this unit.

John Fassel, special-teams coordinator, will need to find a way for John Overton and Addington to produce decent performances this Sunday.
