As far as homecomings go you couldn’t have scripted Sunday’s game with the Kansas City Chiefs better for Dallas Cowboys guard Brian Waters.

He spent the first 11 years of his career with Kansas City before playing one season in New England and sitting out last season all together.

After a lengthy contract negotiation Waters finally came to terms with the Cowboys on Sept. 3 to return to the game he loves.

It was not enough time for him to play in Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants but fittingly Waters seems on track to make his return this Sunday against his former team in Kansas City.

The Cowboys have not made a final decision on his status although Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said “I think he will get a significant amount of playing time” against the Chiefs. He has gotten snaps with the first team in practice this week and could play in a rotation with Mackenzy Bernadeau.

The 13-year veteran said he wants no part of the homecoming angle.

“I played 11 years there” Waters said. “I’m going to always have great affection for that area for Kansas City Arrrowhead Stadium for that organization. But I’m a pro. My job is to be prepared for those guys and represent the Cowboys as best as possible. I don’t want to make it about it. It’s not about me. It’s been a few years since I have been there. The familiarity with the guys is not as much.”

The story might not be about Waters but it will be about the offensive line that Waters was brought in to strengthen.

The Chiefs have an athletic and aggressive 3-4 front led by emerging nose guard Dontari Poe ends Tamba Hali and Tyson Jackson and rush linebacker Justin Houston.

In a 28-2 victory over Jacksonville the Chiefs held the Jaguars to 178 total yards on 70 plays and registered six sacks and two interceptions.
