Two days in, the Cowboys are already seeing what made Brian Waters a six-time Pro Bowler and two-time All Pro.
Even rusty as he is.
“Even though he’s working himself in shape, you could see all the traits come alive on the practice field,” offensive coordinator and line coach Bill Callahan said Thursday at Valley Ranch. “Interesting, he worked in individual yesterday and he worked individual period again today. Within that, we did some competitive drills against the defensive line, and you could see all the explosiveness and strength that a Pro Bowl-caliber guard has.”
The Cowboys have not said whether they will try to get Waters, who last played in the Super Bowl between the Giants and Patriots in February 2012, ready for Sunday night’s game or not. But Callahan said Waters will have input.
“I think that’ll be based on how he feels,” Callahan said. “I think we go day to day and see how he feels and see how much more he can handle. I know we’re working him a little bit more later in the practice with the training staff and with the strength and conditioning staff trying to work on his metabolic workout a little bit and try to get him acclimated to drive series where he can six plays or eight plays or whatever it may be.”
