But some star running backs might be ready to go this week.Things are looking positive for Philadelphia Eagles running back Miles Sanders, who missed Week 1 with a hamstring injury. However, the NFL’s latest injury news isn’t all positive with receivers Michael Thomas and A.J. Brown in serious jeopardy of long-term absences.

The 2016 sixth-round pick has spent his entire career with the Cowboys, starting 34 games along the way. Brown was limited to only nine games in 2019 thanks to a triceps injury, finishing the campaign with 17 tackles and five passes defended. Between the 2017 and 2018 campaigns, Brown started 20 of his 31 games, compiling 85 tackles, three sacks, three interceptions, two forced fumbles, and 19 passes defended. It was that production that led to Brown’s three-year, $15.5M deal with Dallas this past offseason.

Cowboys working out tackle Jared Veldheer

  Cowboys working out tackle Jared Veldheer Veldheer, now 33, has made 113 career starts. Considering the Cowboys also have Tyron Smith classified as questionable, it is not hard to envision them moving forward with Veldheer ahead of Week 2. Smith did not practice this week due to a neck injury. Veldheer has extensive experience at both left and right tackles, playing on the left side in Oakland and to start his Arizona stay. He has been a right tackle since 2017, however.Subscribe to Yardbarker's Morning Bark, the most comprehensive newsletter in sports.

Jourdan Lewis will have an opportunity to step up in Brown’s stead, and Chidobe Awuzie could see an expanded role. Dallas could even turn to defensive back Brandon Carr, who was promoted from the practice squad last week.

With the open roster spot, the Cowboys have promoted offensive tackle Eric Smith from the practice squad. The 2017 undrafted free agent out of Virginia will provide the team with some extra depth in case Tyron Smith is unable to play.
