The Cowboys are clearing the decks, and creating roster spots for some guys they want to protect for the future, and shelving one of their best players.

Via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys are putting left tackle Tyron Smith and cornerback Orlando Scandrick on injured reserve.

They’re filling the roster spots by promoting offensive lineman Kadeem Edwards and wide receiver Lance Lenoir from the practice squad.

Smith has been dealing with back and groin problems this year, and started last week but only lasted three snaps before leaving the game with a knee injury.

The 27-year-old Smith has been one of the top left tackles in the game, but the long list of medical issues has to be a concern. With the team out of playoff contention, it made no sense to put him out there at less than 100 percent.

  1. Smith is huge for the cowboys success. Anyone out there that is dealing with back troubles can attest that back problems can be very debilitating. I can’t imagine playing left tackle in the NFL. It is going to be difficult for him to overcome this. He will just be average going forward

  2. Just Cut Dez he has never been a number 1 is a loser cant catch and is a major problem on the team as seen last week on tv. also he is a 16 mil cap hit. that’s what a mil a drop . Get rid of the bum now why keep him he sucks

  3. The major problem with this team is the talent evaluation, this team is said to have league class scout team but the coaches and Jerry wont listen to them. I know its gotten better but they still suck. This team just does not have the talent to compete. Its like the Reds against the sox or Yankees. 2 different talent levels. Church went to Jacksonville and within 2 weeks called they have better talent in Jacksonville. Jerry needs to listen to the people who know and understand Jimmy J chose the talent over 20 yrs ago he didn’t.
