When the Cowboys lost left tackle Tyron Smith to a knee injury before the season, it seemed like it could be a devastating blow to their offense. It hasn’t been, thanks to the arrival of rookie left tackle Tyler Smith.

Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy praised Tyler Smith today, saying he was outstanding in Monday night’s win over the Giants that improved the Cowboys to 2-1.

“I thought he played his best game so far,” McCarthy said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

McCarthy praised Smith for his hard work during the week, not just on the practice field but in the classroom, and says it is paying off during games.

“He’s played better in each of the games,” McCarthy said.

Tyron Smith is expected to return by the end of the season. If Tyler Smith keeps improving, the Cowboys will have a tough decision to make about who their starting left tackle will be.

  1. He’s a baller. Another first-round hit for Steven and Will McClay. And yes, there were misses (Taco and LVE), but overall the Cowboys have drafted well throughout the past few years.

  2. Anyone giving McCarthy credit for being 2-0 without the all mighty Dak? That’s ok, let’s say nothing positive and resume blaming the head coach when Dak comes back.

    Winning against Giants, who’s record is misleading, and Bengals that have superbowl hangover is nothing to start beating your (or McCarthy’s chest over). Let them beat a contender before we can credit McCarthy.
    Also, for the guy who started touting Tyler Smith, let him face a few better pass rushers and a few more games before anointing him as a hit. Not saying he won’t be but it’s too soon to tell.
