NFL's game day active list policy made it difficult to have just a backup guy at one position as far as the trenches.
Injuries makes it just as tough.

It's different if it's a Terrence Steele who was a swing backup to Lael Collins and Tyron Smith ..

But if it's the Farniok's .. Matt Walekto's ...guys on the 2nd level of backups They have to being able to flex to vasrious roles

When injuries struck the DT roles ... guys like Neville Gallomore who normally be 3 techs .. have to adjust to fill roles such as 1 tech.
As out of position as it may sound.
Neville Gallimore switching between end and tackle would be more equivalent. Generally on offense, you have a swing tackle and a swing interior OL on game days. If injuries happen and you need multiple players, you switch the guys who are out there around, such as Tyler being able to play both tackle and guard and Martin being able to kick out to tackle. You are right that game-day rosters are limited, but making a young player have to learn multiple spots instead of mastering one isn't the way to fix it. Left tackle and right tackle are enough to learn on their own at this level without throwing guard in there as well.

Did Cee Dee get hurt?
It looks like he tweaked his leg a little bit making a one handed catch. Doesn't appear serious and the Cowboys didn't let him go back out there afterwards even though he wanted to.

Picked up right where he left off last season
This guy is in mid season firm already

Cue the “Dak is not a practice QB” excuse
Find a quarterback that has never thrown a pick in practice. And the guy that got Dak was Gilmore, a CB that literally has a Hall of Fame resume.

I swear this agenda on Prescott is ridiculous. If y'all hate the guy so much go find another team to be a "fan" of.

Oh, the “find another team” logic LOL
It's just a suggestion because it seems to me a lot of people here are so pained by the fact Dak is QB1; they could save themselves a lot of misery by waiting for the next QB. (and then probably hate on that guy too)

Too much moving around IMO........just leave Tyron at LT and Tyler at LG until Tyron is injured. Focus on finding a RT you for to start the season. This way you at least know your left side is secured and only plugging one hole with a question mark.
The way I felt about the end of last year.
