Tyron Smith had a “real hit” on his return from injury in Week 11 against Chief of Kansas City, but instead, he was eliminated just before the match started. This is because Dallas Cowboys took all the variables into account, and a pretty heavy one was the fact that he would be asked to play two games in four days after not fully focusing on reality and after missing the previous two. due to – aggravated high ankle sprain – sources confirm to CBS Sports – and not the bony push described by owner Jerry Jones.
Smith was definitely missed on Sunday, as Chief continued to hit Dak Prescott a total of eight times was on track to fire him on five different occasions. No touchdown was scored by the Cowboys in the 19-9 loss at Arrowhead Stadium, but when they returned home to AT&T Stadium on Thanksgiving, the expectation was that Smith would return to his place for a game that suddenly becomes crucial to Dallas’ momentum moving forward.
“We get Tyron [Smith] return this week, “group executive Stephen Jones told 105.3FM the Fan on Monday.” … Felt really good about him playing this week and it was just a decision we had to make, and it’s been a long year, and we definitely miss him. Be great to bring him back. “
Jones went on to explain the team’s mindset when pitting Smith against the Chiefs, despite allowing him to perform the normal pregnancy ritual without issue. He also noted the Cowboys do not consider Smith’s injury an injury that will cause him pain for the rest of the season.
“Definitely we have to do everything that we think is in our best interest throughout the season,” Jones said. “And I don’t think this is anything we’re going to have to manage, unlike Dak [Prescott] – like Dak. We just feel like once he’s ready to roll, he’ll be ready to go. [We] reeling as if he was ready.
“With the exception of some unforeseen setbacks this week, he will be available this week.”
Smith escaped victory first Minnesota Vikings and has since recovered, the initial thought was that bye bye to Week 7 would keep his campaign from missing any games up to that point. Now that have missed two in a row, the sequence will probably stop there, and that will see the turn Terence Steele back to backup mission while La’el Collins still start at the correct resolution. In the absence of Collins, Steele plays well on the right, but the same cannot be said for him when he is flipped to the opposite side.
Smith’s continued availability was paramount to Prescott’s success and the Cowboys attack – often a cover of their own when the perennial All-Pro was not on the field. So, as Jones said, they couldn’t be more delighted to have him back to try to stop a Raiders pass in a hurry trying to knock Prescott like a turkey on Thanksgiving.
