For most of the season, the Dallas Cowboys have had to deal with a series of injuries to their top players. They could be just days away to getting back one their most important stars.
Jon Machota, a Cowboys insider from The Athletic claims that Mike McCarthy, Cowboys’ head coach believes that All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith could soon be back. He expressed hope that Smith will be back in practice next week.
Smith has been out of action this season because of a preseason injury. The Cowboys chose to keep Smith available for his return once he heals.
Tyler Smith, a rookie offensive tackle for the Cowboys, has been a great asset. He has played every game at left tackle in this season’s Cowboys and was a major contributor to the team’s record of only 14 sacks over 11 games.
Tyron Smith is one of the NFL’s best offensive tackles when he is healthy. Unfortunately, Smith hasn’t been healthy enough to play for the entire season since 2015.

Smith has missed at most three games each of the six previous seasons. Since 2020 when he missed 14, Smith has not missed as many games per season.
The Cowboys are still two games behind Eagles in the NFC East race for the title, and they need all the support they can get this last stretch.
Will Tyron Smith make the difference in a Cowboys playoff run?
