Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said offensive lineman Mackenzy Bernadeau will replace Brian Waters in the starting lineup now that Waters is out for the season with a triceps injury.
"[Bernadeau] started for us the entire year last year and played well, came in and played about 20 snaps and played well (Week 8 at Detroit)," Jones said on 105.3 The Fan. "Then, we’ll look to what we do with depth off our practice squad."
Bernadeau started the first three games before Waters bumped him from the starting lineup in Week 4.
"It’s an adjustment just for the fact that you go from being in the game all the time to being on the sideline and waiting around," Bernadeau said Monday, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "You never want anybody to go down and get hurt. At the same time, when your number is called, you’ve got to be prepped, and that’s how I’ll be."SEE FULL ARTICLE
