Last weekend was downright brutal for the Dallas Cowboys, as they were shutout by the Indianapolis Colts. From struggling on the field to suffering several injuries during the process, it was definitely a game to forget for America's Team.

With Zack Martin and Tyron Smith already battling injuries this season, the last thing the Cowboys needed was another injury on the offensive line. Unfortunately bad luck struck Dallas on Sunday, when Xavier Su'a-Filo left the field after suffering an injury to his left eye.

Although the left guard was having issues with his vision over the past few days, the Cowboys should have a relatively healthy unit for this upcoming weekend.

Su'a-Filo is optimistic that he'll play on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, per Cowboys reporter Todd Archer.

If Dallas is going to play to its strength of running the football, then having its starting offensive line active will be important. Despite adding Amari Cooper to bolster the receiving corps, the Cowboys still pride themselves on winning in the trenches.

Luckily for the Cowboys, Connor Williams is more than capable of taking over in the event of an injury.

Dallas and Tampa Bay will kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET from AT&T Stadium.

The Cowboys are just one win away from clinching the NFC East division title.
