Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith has been out of action for the past two week due to bone spur problems in his ankle. It appears that he is getting closer to his return.
Smith was officially listed as limited participant in Wednesday’s practice. This is understandable considering Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy expected Smith would go through individual drills this afternoon.
McCarthy stated that Tyron would be limited before Wednesday’s practice. “He will go through each segment of practice and then we will assess where he’s at.”
Although Smith isn’t expected to play against the Chiefs on Sunday, the Cowboys are making progress in his recovery.

Jerry Jones, Cowboys owner, commented recently on Smith’s status in Week 11. He said “I think we’ll include Tyron to that list of guys who can step up and play.”
Smith is one the NFL’s best left tackles when he is healthy. Smith has been through a lot of injuries in his career, but he has shown that he is capable of enduring them all.
Terence Steele will play left tackle in the event Smith is unable to play. The Cowboys’ second-year offensive tackle was the one who started the previous two games.
