Ron Leary can play now, might need microfracture surgery in future

According to a Cowboys source, the concern with undrafted free agent guard Ron Leary is that he has something his knee that if it pops could force him to have possible career ending microfracture surgery.

They believe the knee will hold up in the short term but the negative long-term prognosis is why the Memphis product went from a possible third round prospect to undrafted. 

The Cowboys have been high on him since taking him through a private work out at the school and believe they not only signed an undrafted free agent who could make the team but who could also compete for a starting job.

Despite the chronic knee problem, Leary was consistent and reliable in college at Memphis, not to mention versatile. He started 36 straight games to end his career. As a senior in 2011, he started the first six games at left tackle and then the final six at right guard. He was recognized as the Co-MVP of the team, which is quite an honor for an offensive lineman.

"The issue for him is how long [he can play], it's not now. It's how long he can play," an ecstatic Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of Leary. "That's why he fell the way he fell. We had our coach think he might be the readiest of any [drafted] offensive linemen."
