Of all the injured players for the Dallas Cowboys, the one they can truly ill-afford to lose for any extended period of time is All-Pro LT Tyron Smith. Fortunately for the Cowboys, they might not have to worry about missing him for much longer.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett stated this week that Smith will “ramp up his activity” when the Cowboys practice today.
Smith has missed the last two games for the Cowboys due to a neck injury and was a limited participant in practice on Wednesday.
Other players limited or not practicing on Wednesday included Tavon Austin, Sean Lee, and David Irving.

The Cowboys’ LT has missed a grand total of nine starts since being drafted No. 9 overall in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Smith has made five straight Pro Bowls and earned First-Team All-Pro honors in 2014 and 2016 – both years in which the Cowboys won the NFC East title.
The Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday.
