With the preseason over, it is a worrying time for roster bubble guys.
Whereas this recreation was to a fantastic diploma an extended audition for gamers whose finest hope is to make a apply squad someplace within the NFL, there have been a number of positions the place the sport, notably the primary half, may need offered some readability. Sadly issues remained extra murky than we might have wished.

This nonetheless is a deadly state of affairs for the Cowboys as they search somebody to start out week one in opposition to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That could be a proficient defensive position coming to city. We will solely hope that they get this proper, as a result of Dak Prescott has to remain wholesome, and the working recreation wants these large guys up entrance to thrive. The backups are practically as essential because the starters, as we had been harshly reminded on Thursday. The staff ought to nonetheless be wanting exhausting at doable choices from outdoors the present roster.
