© Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports The Dallas Cowboys will wait a minimum of another week before putting Tyron Smith back on the field. The All-Pro left handle is managing neck stingers that kept him out of the painful Week 2 comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons, and the Cowboys have actually once again ruled him out for the battle with the Seattle Seahawks after noting him as skeptical on Friday’s injury report– noting he ‘d be a game-time option as quickly as once again. In the lack of Smith, the Cowboys are anticipated to start undrafted novice Terence Steele at left handle and undrafted second-year talent Brandon Knight on the opposite edge, the latter filling in once again for a hurt La’El Collins. Collins is eligible to return from harmed reserve next week, however Mike McCarthy made it clear today the group has in fact not made any decisions on his status since yet. As for Smith, things look a lot more appealing, thinking of owner Jerry Jones said Smith had a possibility to bet the Falcons however was claimed future methods. Put simply, the Cowboys do n’t want to rush him back and run the risk of losing him for a coming slate of video games that includes squaring off with All-Pro protective end Myles Garrett in Week 4. Garrett is a game wrecker by any and all meanings,
and having Smith healthy for that match will be critical to keeping Dak Prescott upright for 4 quarters. Jones noted today that Smith had a”better chance”of handling the Seahawks, and this might very well be yet another chess relocation by McCarthy. For while Smith isn’t yet one hundred percent, it feels as if he ‘d be on the field this week if Dallas didn’t see strong play by
both Steele and Knight in Week 2. Integrate that with the reality Seattle’s protective line does not have the pass rush equivalent to what was dealt with when the Cowboys broke the Los Angeles Rams and the Falcons in subsequent weeks, and it makes good sense McCarthy and Co. would choose to provide Smith another week to get closer to a complete tank.
