According to a Thursday afternoon report from Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, the Dallas Cowboys could be adding yet another weapon to their already dynamic offense at some point later this month. Per the report, Cowboys’ guard La’El Collins is expected to return to the lineup either in late December or for the postseason.
While the Cowboys already sport one of the league’s best offensive fronts, if not the best, Dallas will now be able to add Collins to the likes of Tyron Smith, Ronald Leary, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin and Doug Free.
The 23-year-old guard was originally signed by the Cowboys as a free agent after going undrafted as a result of the 2015 NFL Draft. Despite serving as one of the most talented offensive linemen in the 2015 draft class, some legal trouble while playing collegiately for the LSU Tigers ultimately hindered is worth at the professional level.
Nonetheless, the Cowboys elected – as they so often do – to take a chance on the up-and-comer while he will now provide a boost to an already stout offense headed by the rookie tandem of quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott.
Entering play on Thursday evening against the struggling Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys will be sporting the league’s best record as Dallas currently sits at 10-1 on the season. After losing to the New York Giants all the way back in Week 1, the Cowboys have since rattled off 10 consecutive wins despite suiting up one of the youngest teams in the league.
