Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe is out for Sunday's game at the Los Angeles Chargers after being hospitalized overnight because of heat illness. Coach Mike McCarthy said Nsekhe was treated after practice Thursday, and the athletic trainers decided to send him to the hospital because they didn't like the way the 35-year-old was responding to rehydration. The Cowboys have been practicing mostly outside since training camp ended, with temperatures generally in the 80s and low 90s.
Starting offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga was placed on injured reserve by the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday. Bulaga was battling groin and back injuries throughout training camp. Storm Norton came in for Bulaga last week and is expected to get the start at right tackle.
