Dallas Cowboys News: Mackenzy Bernadeau Has Hip Surgery

Earlier on Wednesday at SB Nation Dallas, Jonathan Tjarks talked about the offensive line for the Dallas Cowboys, and how big questions marks still remain. Dallas' offensive line took a hit on Wednesday, as free agent addition Mackenzy Bernadeau underwent hip surgery over this past weekend, and will be sidelined for 10-12 weeks while he recovers.

According to multiple sources, Bernadeau, who signed a four-year, $11 million deal as a free agent in March, had surgery over the weekend to repair a tear in his right hip and the hope is he could be back in 10-12 weeks.

Bernadeau's agent declined comment.

Well, that's certainly not good news. As Todd Archer over at ESPN Dallas pointed out, Bernadeau was signed to be a starter, after leaving Carolina for Dallas this past offseason.

If Bernadeau is out closer to 12 weeks, then he'll be likely to return sometime in mid-August from his injury. Consequently, Bernadeau is likely to miss a fair amount of training camp as he recovers from his injury.
