Offensive tackle La’el Collins will be placed on injured reserve for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, sources told ESPN, causing him to miss at least the first three games.

Collins has been dealing with a hip issue that kept him off the practice field late in the week, and he did not work much at all during training camp.

The loss of Collins, who had his best season in 2019, would be a blow early in the season to the offensive line. The Cowboys would go with veteran Cameron Erving at right tackle, but late last week Brandon Knight suffered an ankle injury in practice. Rookie tackle Terence Steele, who saw first-team snaps early in camp while Collins and Erving were out, made the roster as an undrafted free agent.
