The Cowboys are down to two tackles following the knee injury to Tyron Smith and the loss of Sam Young on a waiver claim by the Buffalo Bills.
Smith is expected to miss at least two weeks with a knee injury he suffered in practice Wednesday.
That leaves starting left tackle Doug Free and Smith’s backup, second-year undrafted free agent Jeremy Parnell, as the Cowboys try to get ready for the season opener against the New York Jets. Young was released Saturday and claimed by the Bills this week.
But Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the Cowboys have some flexibility for tackles.
“We’ve got nine offensive linemen. We’ve got enough position flex in there with maybe one, possibly two of those younger guys over there at tackle,” Jones said. “We won’t eliminate anybody from being able to give us a little flexibility there on game day.”
