Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said veteran guard Derrick Dockery might start this week, depending on how he practices.
“This may be the time that he gets more of the snaps, or possibly even the starting snaps,” Jones said Thursday. “But we’ll have to see how the practices go this week.”
Dockery, a nine-year veteran, was signed Sept. 4. He shared first-team reps at left guard with Bill Nagy in practice on Wednesday. Nagy, limited in practice Wednesday because a neck injury, was not at practice Thursday during the portion open to reporters.
“He had a specific purpose when we brought him here. It was to provide base in the middle, and we didn’t want anybody to get any idea we don’t have base in the middle,” Jones said.
