2 Leighton Vander Esch replacements Cowboys can sign (and 1 they should avoid)

The Dallas Cowboys received numerous regrettable injury updates on key players, 

As if their 42-10 defeat on Sunday Night Football was not agonizing enough. Leighton Vander Esch, 

A linebacker, KaVontae Turpin, a wide receiver, and C.J. Goodwin, a special teams gunner, are also on the list.

The news that Vander Esch will be placed on injured reserve with a neck strain is particularly unfortunate because the Cowboys were already short on

linebackers to begin the season after DeMarvion Overshown, a rookie, tore his anterior cruciate ligament.

Devin Harper, a longtime member of the practice squad, was also lost to the waiver wire.

Damone Clark and Vander Esch have been amassing lots of snaps. Markquese Bell, 

a linebacker who converted to safety, is listed as the next player in depth, though it makes sense that Micah Parsons will see more action at linebacker.
