Dallas Cowboys Rule Out Veteran Offensive Tackle

The Dallas Cowboys finally got the monkey off their back over Wild Card weekend, as they dominated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-14, and they will now take on the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday for a place in the NFC Championship game.

Unfortunately, they didn't come through that game completely unscathed, as veteran offensive tackle Jason Peters suffered a hip injury that will now cost him this weekend, as the Cowboys officially ruled him out for their key clash against the 49ers elite defensive front.

With an elite offensive line, the Cowboys will be able to survive the loss, but if they find themselves with another injury, their depth will certainly be tested, but as we've seen all season long, this team can run the ball and protect Dak Prescott incredibly well, and they'll need to be at their best this weekend.
