The Dallas Cowboys' offensive line is beaten up heading into the 2018 NFL regular season. The shape of the line appears to be getting worse as we approach Week 1, too.

La'el Collins, a 25-year-old offensive lineman, appeared to be injured at practice today. The Cowboys' offensive lineman had something going on with his lower-half, per those at practice.

ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer has the details.

"Cowboys right tackle La'el Collins has his left ankle taped pretty good and has been limping," he tweeted.

Collins is the latest Cowboys' offensive lineman to be injured.

Star guard Zack Martin suffered a knee injury in a preseason game earlier this month. He will hopefully be OK in time for Week 1.

Center Travis Frederick announced on Twitter last night that he's suffering from Guillain Barre Syndrome. You can view the full details here.

Here's the full status of the offensive line, from Archer:

"Cowboys right tackle La'el Collins has his left ankle taped pretty good and has been limping. Chaz Green is at right tackle. With Tyron Smith not practicing the current line from left to right is: Cameron Fleming, Connor Williams, Joe Looney, Kadeem Edwards and Green," he tweeted.


The Cowboys are set to open the 2018 season on Sept. 9. Dallas begins the year against Carolina.

Stay tuned for more injury updates on La'el Collins.
