Is he truly out? The latest on Tyron Smith.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys Training Camp Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We have on report from a reputable journalist that Tyron Smith has already been ruled out for the game against the Eagles. In addition, it’s going to be Byron Bell who will get the chance to replace him this week. This is according to Jane Slater of the NFL Network.

The interesting thing is most of the local media has yet to report the same. That doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s not true, but they might not be talking to the same source or aren’t hearing the same definitive statement. There is no reason to doubt Slater, she’s been right on most things before.

I think you would have to believe this is the case, even if it’s being reported that Smith might practice this week.

There are also reports that Rod Marinelli will turn to Justin Durant as the main MIKE linebacker, and that Jaylon Smith will only see spot duty.
