Dallas Cowboys Tyrone Smith Team sources are considering placing a star left tackle on a reserve injured due to a neck injury confirmed to ESPN’s Ed Werder.
Smith’s neck injury burned in practice after the Cowboys’ season opening, and he missed the next two matches before returning to the Cleveland Browns in a defeat on Sunday. However, he was frustrated and the source missed the practice Wednesday.
Sources have also confirmed that Smith is seeking a second opinion to find the best way to solve the problem.

The NFL network reported for the first time on Thursday the possibility that Smith would miss the rest of the season.
Smith has missed the game over the past five seasons, covering neck injuries as well as back, hamstring, knee and elbow injuries.

The loss of both tackles is Doc Prescott But the quarterback is confident that the attack can be successful.
“Obviously, we can’t replace some of the players on this team with some of the original starters, but I’m sure the coaches and staff at the front office can make the right decision to place these people here,” Prescott said. “Not only that, but I see the way these young people come in and practice and prepare. It’s what gives me confidence and lets me know that I trust them. I trust them and I’ll go to war with them.”
