Cowboys Vs. Chargers: David Arkin Heads List Of Five Non-Starters To Watch

The Dallas Cowboys are counting on David Arkin to step up and provide depth at the center position, says Blogging The Boys' Tom Ryle in his piece about five non-starters to watch in Saturday night's preseason game vs. the San Diego Chargers.

After reading what seems like hundreds of articles about the event, loosely termed a football game, involving the Oakland Raiders, I am not sure just how good or bad Arkin is. Given the frequent and lingering injury situations in the interior of the offensive line, the odds are very high that he is going to be called on at some point in the regular season, and the team needs him to step up. He is struggling with the center position. He ought to, given that he never played it before. Having undergone his baptism by fire, so to speak, it will be interesting to see how he does in his second game. If he just looks reasonably competent, it could bode well for the Cowboys down the road.

Kickoff is slated for 8:00 p.m. CT, and the game will be televised on NFL Network.
