Dallas Cowboys insider Jane Slater had an update on left tackle Tyron Smith following this evening's loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Smith, arguably the best offensive tackle in NFL, left tonight's game against the Saints late in the fourth quarter.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott got sacked and went down near Smith's ankles. Smith had trouble getting off the field.
It didn't look good:
Smith was reportedly on the cart following the game and was upset.
"Just saw LT Tyron Smith on cart. He looked upset. Doesn’t look good," she tweeted.
This would be a significant blow for the Cowboys if Smith missed any time.
"Cowboys LT Tyron Smith went down late in the fourth quarter and needed to be carted to the locker room. It's unclear how severe his injury is, but the Cowboys would be in trouble if he can't go next week against a good Packers pass rush," Jason Hirschhorn tweeted.
The Cowboys fell to 3-1 on the season with tonight's loss.
Dallas hosts Green Bay at AT&T Stadium next Sunday.
UPDATE: Jerry Jones has announced that Tyron Smith has a high-ankle sprain. The severity is not clear yet, though it's typically a multi-week injury.
