The Dallas Cowboys will be without star defensive lineman DeMarcus Lawrence indefinitely. That is a major loss, but just one part of the issues the team has already faced to start the 2021 season.
In addition to the injury to Lawrence, receiver Michael Gallup suffered a calf strain in Week 1. He was placed on injured reserve and will be out a minimum of three games.
Right tackle La’el Collins is out five games due to a drug-related suspension.
Defensive lineman Randy Gregory recently tested positive for COVID and will likely miss Week 2.
Assistant defensive line coach Leon Lett suffered a right leg injury in practice and will need surgery.
Oh yeah, and let’s not forget that star right guard Zack Martin missed Week 1 due to COVID.
Injuries are an unfortunate part of the NFL season. The Las Vegas Raiders also experienced several injuries in their Week 1 game. Dallas will be down a few players entering Week 2 at the Chargers.
