The Cowboys have reportedly made a significant roster move the morning after the season-opening loss at Carolina.

Dallas, which struggled mightily in its season-opening loss to the Panthers on Sunday afternoon, have reportedly made a move to bolster the offensive line.

The Cowboys' offensive line has been one of the best in the NFL in recent years, but it's currently pretty banged up. All-Pro center Travis Frederick is out indefinitely and a couple of the line's other key players are dealing with injuries.

NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reports that the Cowboys are signing a 2014 NFL Draft second-round pick.

Dallas is reportedly added former Houston Texans starter Xavier Su'a-Filo.

"The #Cowboys signed G Xavier Su’a-Filo, former #Texans second rounder, per @schwartzfeinsod," he tweeted.

The Cowboys struggled to protect Dak Prescott on Sunday afternoon and Dallas also had difficulty getting Ezekiel Elliott going. If Jerry Jones' team is going to be successful this season, it'll start with the offensive line.

Prescott didn't want to talk about any injuries or former players after the Cowboys' loss, though.

“I know we have a lot of great players on this team. A lot of good guys that come in and work the right way every day and gave everything they had tonight,” Prescott told reporters. “I’m not talking about the guys we used to have or guys that we’re missing. I felt like the guys on the field tonight, we gave it our all and promise we’ll do it again next Sunday and have a better performance.”

The move should be officially announced by the Cowboys sometime today. Dallas is set to host the Giants in a Sunday Night Football game this weekend.
