The Dallas Cowboys will have their first NFC East battle on Monday against the New York Giants and will have the tough task of stopping running back Saquon Barkley who is currently second in the NFL in rushing.
One of the players who will be called upon to stop him is dealing with a small setback. Defensive tackle Quinton Bohanna, who the Cowboys took in the sixth round in 2021, was limited in practice on Friday with a neck issue.

Bohanna had some good moments as a rookie but couldn’t consistently keep his pad level down when coming off of the line of scrimmage which caused him to get bottled up at times. The 330-pound behemoth has looked a lot better so far in 2022 as a space-eater for the Cowboys’ defense and a guy that can get off of blocks and pursue down the line.
The interior of the Giants’ offensive line is the weakest part of the unit so Bohanna and company will be vital to what the Cowboys want to accomplish defensively. It doesn’t appear that Bohanna will miss any significant time because of it, but seeing as their matchup with the Giants is just three days away, it’s something to keep an eye on.
