Mike McCarthy Announces Cowboys Lose Another Key Starter To Injury

The injury bug just keeps biting.


With Dak Prescott out for the season, the Dallas Cowboys failed to move the ball on offense. Ezekiel Elliott fumbled twice, while Andy Dalton looked like a JV quarterback in a 38-10 blowout loss to the Arizona Cardinals.


If that wasn’t enough, head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that offensive lineman Brandon Knight suffered a knee injury during the game and it required surgery. According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, McCarthy said that Knight will be out a few weeks.


“Cowboys lose offensive left tackle Brandon Knight, who suffered a knee injury last night and has already had surgery, coach Mike McCarthy said. Knight replaced Tyron Smith, who is out for the season following neck surgery.”

Smith was lost for the season just a couple of weeks ago as Knight took his place. This is a devastating blow as Zack Martin was also lost on Monday to a concussion.


Along with Smith, La’el Collins is lost, while Travis Frederick retired before the season. This once stellar offensive line is looking very rugged.


Despite being depleted, the Cowboys sit at the top of the division with a 2-4 record and will take on the 1-5 Washington Football Team on Sunday.
