O-line health a huge factor in NFC East in Week 1

The NFC East may be decided in the trenches early on. Several NFC East offensive linemen are dealing with injury issues heading into Week 1.

For the Cowboys, right tackle Marc Colombo and left guard Kyle Kosier will both likely miss Week 1. Colombo is still recovering from August 16 knee surgery. Kosier is still dealing with a sprained right knee. The Dallas Morning News notes that neither player has practiced this week.

Former Ram Alex Barron will start in place of Colombo. Barron is a liability at times (his technique is perpetually raw and he’s prone to penalties) but he’s a good athlete who has started his entire NFL career. Montrae Holland, who was once upon a time a starter in New Orleans before going to Denver and losing control of his weight, will start at left guard. Holland cannot offer the Cowboys’ front five the kind of run-blocking mobility that Kosier could.

In Philadelphia, it was expected that Nick Cole would be filling in at center while Jamaal Jackson continues to rebound from the ACL injury he suffered late last December. But Jackson’s rebound has already concluded, and he’s expected to take the field against Green Bay this Sunday.

The Giants are also getting their center back. Shaun O’Hara had been out with Achilles tendinosis. Paul Schwartz of the New York Post notes that the two-time Pro Bowler is practicing this week but must be leery of overworking the injury.
