NFL: AUG 20 Preseason - Cowboys at Chargers

The news isn’t getting any better about Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith.

Wednesday brought word that Smith tore his left hamstring during practice and will miss months while he recovers. Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports on Thursday that Smith actually suffered an avulsion fracture of the knee.

An avulsion fracture occurs when a tendon or ligament tears a piece of bone away from the main piece. Jets tackle Mekhi Becton suffered one earlier this month and has been placed on season-ending injured reserve.

The Cowboys have not made any move like that with Smith at this point, but Rapoport reports that he won’t be able to return until December if he is able to return at all. The Cowboys could keep the door open by waiting until after the cut to 53 players to put Smith on injured reserve, but any move before that would eliminate the chance of playing again this year.

  1. As a close friend of the organization I feel bad for Tyrone as if he were healthy throughout his career he would have been a first ballot HOFer

  2. Wonderful career for Tyron and he can stay go at it when healthy but wouldn’t be surprised if he’s played his last down in the NFL.

    Only 31 but injuries have been wrecking his career lately and he’s already more than set financially.

  3. Wow. Really feel bad for Smith. This is a really bad injury. The Cowboys season is pretty much over before it begins.

  4. Did this to my bicep on Memorial day weekend. Still being told not to lift more than 2 pounds.

  5. He wont be playing anymore this year IMO. Who knows he may miss a lot of time. Wish him well

  6. I didn’t really see Dallas doing much this year but with all the injuries so far, 3rd place NFC East below the Redskins but above the Giants, Birds take the division

  7. Tough break for the boys. Best of luck to Tyron, great player just cannot stay healthy.

  8. thank god Mekhi Becton got hurt 1st tbh, the Jets were able to get Duane Brown. This was huge as you know Dallas would of jumped on that.

    lmao

    Duane Brown has been cooked for 2 years. Teams need to develop linemen internally.

  10. So this means we’ll be hearing the same thing from Cowboys fans….. oh you just wait till next year…… Just wait till next year… You’ll see when we have everybody back we’ll be unstoppable 🤣🤣…… How bout dem Cowboys

  11. In all seriousness which I never do here, and as a guy who finds glee in every cowboys misfortune, this is a bummer even I cannot get excited about. I’ve never heard any bad things about Tyron Smith and I feel bummed for the guy.

  12. They have a really good possible replacement at LT named Zach Martin. How they would replace him at guard? No idea.

  13. But what does Dr. Jerruh have to say about this. We all know that unless Dr. Jerruh says something, it is of no value.

    Duane Brown has a 79.4 PFF rating over the last 2 years which is better than all but 1 player on the “vaunted” Patriots offensive line

  15. Iasaih Wynn from the Pats might be an adequate replacement. Rumor has it that he is available for cap reasons. Probably would only take a mid-round pick.

    Just keep in mind that Aaron Rodgers has only won one more Super Bowl than Dak.

    …and Dax has 4 less league MVP’s than Aaron.

  17. It’s probably over, but a twelve year career with seven straight Pro Bowls and $112 million is not bad! Tyron should be very happy with that.
