ARLINGTON, Texas –The Cowboys will go back to the drawing board at a position where their search of consistency is seemingly unending.
Third-year former undrafted safety
“It’s either torn or partially torn, one of the two. I’ll find out tomorrow,” Church said. “There’s no way, probably (to return this season). I’ll be watching.”
With the Cowboys’ other opening day starter
“I’ll be ready to go,” Sensabaugh said. “But at the same time, we’ve got guys that can play. We’ll be all right. They all can play. We have a lot of guys that can play out there. It’s unfortunate for Barry. He’ll rehab and get everything right and be ready to come strong whenever his time comes up again. Crazy injury.”
Coincidentally, it was the Cowboys’ depth at another position in the secondary that helped them get through Sunday’s game with little incident despite the thinning of the safety position. The team has four cornerbacks it trusts, and chose to slide one of them,
It’s unknown if the team will utilize the same package moving forward to deal with the injury, or if another safety will be added to the roster. Other than Sensabaugh, McCray and Silva, the Cowboys have no experience at the position. Fourth-round pick
“We’re going to have to look,” defensive coordinator Rob Ryan said of the immediate future of the safety position. “We have to do what’s best for the team. We’ll look and get the best thing we think we can do.”
