FRISCO, Texas – Head coach Jason Garrett said starting left guard Xavier Su'a-Filo had a "positive checkup" Monday on the eye injury he suffered in the Cowboys' loss to the Colts.
Su'a-Filo was injured on the offense's fourth-down try near the Colts' goal-line in the second quarter. He did not return to the game and was replaced in the lineup by Adam Redmond.
The Cowboys return to practice Wednesday. Garrett said the team would monitor Su'a-Filo's progress on a day-to-day basis.
"He still doesn't have great vision coming out of that eye, but our doctors are optimistic," Garrett said.
The Cowboys were already without starting right guard Zack Martin (sprained knee) against the Colts. Rookie Connor Williams started in his place.
Martin, an offensive captain, had never missed a game in his five-year career.
"He's as tough as they come," Garrett said. "He's going to give himself every chance to practice and play in this (next) ball game."
The Cowboys (8-6) host Tampa Bay (5-9) this Sunday at AT&T Stadium with another chance to clinch the NFC East.
