While Ekeler's efficiency is sure to take a hit before long, Football Outsiders ranks the Bolts' offensive line a surprising eighth in Adjusted Line Yards, their proprietary run-blocking metric. Even without top tackle Russell Okung (blood clots) the unit has been average or better by most measures.

Devin Smith glances to his left and right in the Dallas Cowboys locker room while trying to explain how difficult it was to be out of the NFL for a year following two major knee injuries that derailed his career.
