Story reported by Silver Star Nation's Mickey Spagnola.

Earlier in the week we were talking about the Dallas Cowboys possible loss of offensive guard Brian Waters, having injured his triceps muscle in the game against the Detroit Lions. Well now here at midweek it looks like he does have a torn tricep muscle. The Cowboys haven't put him on injured reserve yet but it looks like that's where his status is heading by the end of the week which would likely mean he's out for the season, and Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett knows not only is it a big loss with his physical talent  not being on the field, but they will miss his presence.

Jason Garrett said, "He's a good football player. He plays really well after the ball is snapped, and we're certainly going to miss that, but we're also going to miss his presence, his personality. He's a veteran guy who I think in a lot of ways showed a relatively young offensive line how to do it each and every day . Just his demeanor, his physicalness, just how he went about his job on a daily basis and during the ball game. Really impressive and I think contagious. I think good for a lot of young guys  and good for our football team."

So the Cowboys are back to square one  at the right guard position. Mackenzy Bernadeau will be the starter as he was projected to be at the start of the season.
