Cowboys’ Chidobe Awuzie To Miss Time

Cowboys starting cornerback Chidobe Awuzie will miss multiple games with a hamstring injury, per a club announcement. Awuzie has not been placed on injured reserve, but that would be the logical move if he’s sidelined for three or more games.

Awuzie¬†went down late in the Cowboys’ win over the Falcons, adding another name to the team’s already lengthy injury list. Already, the Cowboys have cornerback Anthony Brown and linebackers Leighton Vander Esch and Sean Lee on IR. Brown hit the IR list just as fellow corner Jourdan Lewis returned to action and Awuzie’s absence marks yet another hit to the secondary.

In the interim, the Cowboys will likely turn to recent call-up Brandon Carr for support at corner. Ideally, the Cowboys wanted the veteran at safety, where he backed Darian Thompson and Daryl Worley.

On the plus side, rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs returned to the practice field after missing some time with a shoulder injury. They’ll need the Alabama product more than ever given the Cowboys’ injuries on the defensive side of the ball.

      “And on behalf of the five-time world champion Dallas Cowboys, Hall of Fame owner Jerry Jones…all the Cowboy players that played before me, that played with me, and played after me…with the 60th pick in the second round, the Dallas Cowboys select defensive back from Colorado, Chidobe Awuzie.”

      The SOB still pushed off of Nate Wright, but damn that was some great trolling by Drew Pearson, and against the perfect fanbase.
