Injured Cowboys linemen making progress

The Cowboys are on track to return starting left tackle Tyron Smith though he wasn’t a full participant in practice on Thursday. Smith was inactive for the Week 8 game due to a neck injury he re-aggravated, however, according to Stephen Jones, the team is “hopeful.”

His absence against the Rams was the third of the season after he missed Weeks 3 and 4 already. Since 2015, the veteran has missed at least three games or more each season.

According to team owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Smith would have played for the Cowboys on Sunday if it was a must-win situation. However, the team opted to play it safe with the neck “stinger” and held him out for one more week of rehab.

His backup, Chuma Edoga, started the game for Dallas, however, he suffered an injury to his ankle that knocked him out of the remainder of the game. After getting off to a rough start where the OL gave up three sacks, they managed to keep the QB clean on the way to the win.

Edoga left AT&T Stadium on Sunday without needing a walking boot despite taking a cart off of the field during the game. The former third-rounder out of USC underwent an MRI on Monday and according to Stephen Jones, the injury isn’t “as bad as they thought.” Now, both injured linemen are on track to play on Sunday vs Philadelphia, barring setbacks.
