Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith did not play in Week Two against the Atlanta Falcons, as he was listed on the injury report with a neck injury. It is not that big of a deal even though it left the Cowboys in a tough spot as far as the offensive line goes. Owner Jerry Jones said the team was taking precautions on sitting Smith.
I'm more leaning towards the camp that Jerry is just talking out of his ass here, mostly because he doesn't say the severity of the injury or if Smith will be able to go this weekend.
Good thing the Cowboys didn't need him; of course, they lucked out because the Falcons couldn't hold a lead. Stop me if you've heard this one before.
Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith was added to the team's injury report yesterday (Thursday) with a neck injury. Usually, those things are never good, but head coach Mike McCarthy isn't that concerned about it right now. Which, I guess, is good news?
If Smith misses practice today (Friday), I'd say it's likely he'll be out this week. The Cowboys are already down offensive linemen - La'el Collins, for one. The good news? The Cowboys have the Atlanta Falcons this week.
Many conversations are going on in the sports world, and the world in general about social justice, reform, and change. As these continue, one thing we want to make clear: if you don't understand, we will try to educate each other to understand better.
That's the message behind what the Dallas Cowboys plan to do. Owner Jerry Jones hasn't been shy about his attempts to downplay the real issues at hand, including trying to find a "compromise" on kneeling for the anthem (which not only misses the entire point but is completely tone-deaf). Cowboys players are hoping to include Jones in their discussions, as he was magically out of town the past few days, and make him understand their points of view.
For once, Jones should just shut up and listen. If he doesn't change his mind or thinking, maybe he will at least learn something.
The Dallas Cowboys will be without their defensive tackle Gerald McCoy this season, after he tore his quadriceps tendon in the team's first padded practice on Monday. McCoy signed a three-year deal with the team this past offseason.
McCoy sent out a statement after the news was confirmed.
As always, we hate to see these things happen this early in training camp, especially with a player who is looking for a chance to prove himself with a new team.
