Cowboys waiting on Brian Waters to explore all his options before making a roster move

While starting right guard Brian Waters likely is out for the season with a torn triceps, the Cowboys are willing to wait and let Waters explore all his options in what might be his final season.

"We just want to explore every option with him," Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Wednesday. "He has that kind of impact on our football team, so when you have a guy like that you just want to check every avenue before you make any definitive comments, and then we’ll have to make a decision one way or another here in the next few days."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said on his radio show Tuesday that Waters likely is out for the year. The Cowboys could have placed Waters on injured reserve Tuesday when they made a roster move, but elected to release defensive end Jason Vega instead.

Waters wants to try to rehab for two weeks and see if he can play with it after the bye week. The Cowboys, though, might not have the luxury to carry the roster spot that long.

Dallas has only three healthy cornerbacks and two safeties missed all or part of Sunday's loss to the Lions.

"We’ll see," Garrett said. "We’ll just see what the final medical evaluation is and what our best move is, and we’ll do that here in the next few days."
