    IRVING, Texas – What has gone from a contingency plan to a probable occurrence, Mackenzy Bernadeau[IMG] is expected to start Sunday’s game at center against the Browns.

    The starting right guard for every game this season, Bernadeau will likely slide to center and replace Ryan Cook[IMG], who hasn’t practiced all week with a knee injury. Cook was listed as “doubtful” to play against Cleveland.

    “I think I’ve gotten better every day in practice. I’m getting better so I am ready,” Bernadeau said. “I’ve played before in the past years … even though I haven’t played in a regular season game, I’m comfortable at the position and comfortable with the guys I’m playing around. And I’m familiar with the system calls.”

    Bernadeau said the technique is the biggest adjustment to make, over the snaps and line calls.

    At least Romo won't have to search for where the leak in the line will come. Just look straight ahead, Tony.

    Interesting to see if we make a roster move here. We only have 7 healthy guys and may not want to dress Arkin

    Broaddus just tweeted that's it's obvious they have no plan for Arkin.

    Cook has had injury problems for several weeks now.

    Why do I think this has more to do with Cook not getting enough push in the running game and less to do with his knee problem?

    I'm actually a bit interested at the direction this experiment takes.

    He is harder to move, as is Dockery next to him.

    I wasn't aware that the front for Cleveland was next in line to the Ravens.

    And they both should be hard to bull rush against.

    this might actually be better in the middle. we might be able to get some push up the middle in the run game. if not it will be a long day tomorrow.

    an experiment is "Let's start Cole Beasley at #3 WR" or "Let's go with Dunbar at RB ahead of Felix"

    this seems more like "we ran out of duct tape, get Bernadeau"

    Oh, I'd say an increase in size and ability to run block is an experiment allright.

    This arrangement should be good for at least one turnover tomorrow. :(

    It might be a little better at C but it might be a little worse at RG.

    The snap issue is a concern too.

    They're not, but that's not the concern. This will be yet another offensive line change this year for an already patchwork line, and just fyi, Bernadeau has never started at center before.

    So no, I'm not exactly thrilled with the situation....
