FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys will wrap up their 2022 NFL preseason on Friday when they host the Seattle Seahawks. In what is usually called the final “dress rehearsal” for a team before the regular season begins, it’s a little different for the Cowboys, as coach Mike McCarthy has indicated that the starters will sit down again in the preseason finale. .
McCarthy suggested before Tuesday’s practice inside the Ford Center at The Star that good work from its starters over the next two days would allow the team to repeat the approach for preseason game No. 3. In other words, Dallas will continue with the plan for the previous game. matchups on the Broncos and Chargers: Dak Prescott and Micah Parsons and the first teams on the sidelines.
“We’re going to work our (headlines) as hard as we can over the next two days,” McCarthy said. “We anticipate that we will play the third game like we did the last two.”
First-round draft pick Tyler Smith will not play in the preseason finale due to a minor ankle injury. And that’s not the worst news on the offensive line, as veteran left tackle Tyron Smith is out “for months” after suffering a torn hamstring in practice here at The Star.
It may be time to panic down the offensive line, even if the Cowboys bosses aren’t.
Prescott’s backup could still be in question, as Cooper Rush and Will Grier have been competing during camp, but McCarthy said Grier will get “a cut” of replays in his duel with Cooper Rush.
The Seahawks will also focus on the quarterback position, but what is in question is the initial sign between Drew Lock and Geno Smith.
The door remains open for Lock, who despite testing positive for COVID last week and missing the second preseason game, can still earn the job. If he starts Seattle’s season opener, it will be against Denver, the team that drafted him in the second round in 2019.
