Bad News For Cowboys, Tyron Smith Could Be Out All Season

Videos by OutKick

Dallas Cowboys star left tackle Tyron Smith might be out for the season due to setbacks with a neck injury. The team is now considering placing Smith on the injured reserve and that could place more workload on Dak Prescott. Dak could leverage this extra responsibility into a monster contract.

“Gathering medical opinions” are never a good sign for athletes. They usually mean that they’re weighing their options to avoid the inevitable bad news of being out all year. It’s always heartbreaking when athletes who work their whole lives to play have one bad moment, and their season is gone.

Football-wise Dak Prescott has an exposed blindside and judging off of this season’s results, he needs all the help he can get. It’s not everyday when a quarterback throws for over 500 yards and can’t win a football game. Most of those yards came against a prevent defense, but his teammates still need to be better.

Rumors before the season were that Dallas wanted to move on from Smith largely because of his 8-year, $97.6 million contract. A season-ending neck injury might force them to move on from the pro-bowler and relocate that cashflow to Dak. Luckily for Tyron Smith, over $22 million of that contract is guaranteed.

Light work

The Dallas Cowboys have one of the lightest schedules in the NFL that includes the NY Giants, AZ Cardinals, Washington, and Philly. Let’s be honest. They don’t need a pro-bowl tackle to beat some of those squads.

Dak Prescott has a big opportunity to show for the next month that he’s worth a mega-deal. This Tyron Smith injury just might be the first financial domino to fall and make room for Dak’s new deal.

  1. What is this going to do to Dallas’ pre game, America and cops are racist protests? I mean, they spent the weeks leading up to their first game talking about the big splash they were going to make with their protest. I’m sure they spent time watching film of other teams kneeling. Get some ideas. What names were they going to put on the backs of their helmets. Obviously more time than blocking and tackling drills, and taking care of the football. Dallas fan since the 70s. They disgust me. Haven’t watched a game, but enjoyed some highlights of them getting throttled by Cleveland.

  2. I dunno Cleveland laid a pretty good smack down on them in Dallas i know their schedule is favorable but if i were a Cowboy fan nervous time. It’s their defense to allow Cleveland almost 50 points the question is can they stop anyone.
