Cowboys right guard Mackenzy Bernadeau, who is coming of hip surgery, said he “felt fluid” in workouts Friday with a resistance cord and is experiencing no pain in his leg. Bernadeau, a free-agent signee, is expected to start at guard and also work at center this season.
He will begin training camp on the physically unable to perform list but indicated Friday that he does not expect to remain there much longer.
“I’m getting closer every day. I’m getting better every day,” Bernadeau said. “The leg’s a little stronger. I’m pushing it more and being more active. I’m feeling good. I can’t wait to get in pads and go at it. When that will be, we don’t know. But I’m feeling great. ”
Bernadeau said he has been working on the resistance cords for roughly a week. That usually is one of the final steps in the rehab process.
“Being with the cords is a lot different than being in pads. But it’s a step closer,” Bernadeau said.
