The offensive line for the Dallas Cowboys will be a little different when they take the field against the Kansas City Chiefs this Sunday.
Connor McGovern will serve as the Cowboys’ starting left guard in Week 11.
McGovern will take over for Connor Williams as left guard on Sunday. This season, the former second-round selection has struggled.
Jones expressed his confidence in McGovern while discussing the move on 105.3The Fan
He has had an impressive fall and has impressed everyone. Jones stated via Audacy that he has impressed his coaches and teammates, and that this is a great chance for him. He will be a great player. It’s hard to remember a time when an offensive lineman got the same attention as a lead-blocker out of a special formation.
Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas Connor McGovern will start at left guard Sunday at KC. Mike McCarthy would not go that far in his media session but acknowledged Connor Williams has had too many penalties (13).

Jones acknowledged McGovern might have some growing pains, but it won’t impact his faith in the Penn State product.
Jones said that Jones believes he has earned the title. Jones said, “The problem with him is playing leftguard. He has sold the staff and the team on his ability to play right guard. He’s doing two things. He will not only be playing that role but he will also be doing it at the left guard.
We’ll find out if McGovern can improve the Cowboys’ offensive lines against the Chiefs on Sunday.
