Brian Waters hopes to start Sunday for Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys pulled Pro Bowl guard Brian Waters out of retirement to bring veteran stability to an offensive line in need of help.

After sitting out all of last season, Waters has been eased into the lineup since signing with the team Sept. 3. He played in 18 snaps at right guard in Week 2 and 31 in Sunday’s win over the St. Louis Rams. Splitting time now with Mackenzy Bernadeau, Waters hopes to start and play the entire way this weekend against the San Diego Chargers.

“That’s the goal, to try to make it through the whole game,” Waters said Wednesday, per The Dallas Morning News. “We’ll see how it goes. Mack will be ready to go. I think we’re all confident he’ll be ready to go if anything happens.”

The Cowboys‘ offensive line was abused by the Chiefs in Week 2. Kansas City nose tackle Dontari Poe manhandled rookie center Travis Frederick, leaving running back DeMarco Murray nowhere to go. It was a different story against the Rams. The All-22 revealed a Cowboys interior line that held its own, protecting quarterback Tony Romo and paving the way for Murray’s 175 yards on 26 carries.

Waters played exceptionally well for the New England Patriots two seasons ago. If he can return to that level, this Dallas line figures to be much improved in 2013.

Cowboys | Miles Austin listed as doubtful

Cowboys | Miles Austin listed as doubtful

Dallas Cowboys WR Miles Austin (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Week 5. He was able to do some light running during the early stages of practice Friday, Oct. 4, and will try to work out before the game.

Fantasy Tip: It appears Austin will sit out another game because of his hamstring injury, but owners will have to monitor the inactive list in case he does play. If he does not play, Terrance Williams and Dwayne Harris likely will see a bump in fantasy value. Williams could be a flex option in deeper leagues.
