Cowboys injury updates for Tyron Smith, Anthony Hitchens

The Cowboys won, but a couple of players are dinged up.

The good news is that the Dallas Cowboys beat the Oakland Raiders and kept their slim playoff hopes alive. The bad news is a couple of key players were injured in the process. All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith hurt his knee and missed the end of the game. Linebacker Anthony Hitchens was also hurt at the very end of the game.

According to Stephen Jones, the prognosis on Hitchens is better than Smith, although it’s possible both could play this week.

With the Cowboys in must-win mode every week, they really need Smith, but it sounds like there is a real possibility he is unable to go against the Seahawks. Just in case, start planning the help for Byron Bell now, Cowboys coaches. Jaylon Smith will get a chance to shine if Hitchens can’t go.

Day to day sounds okay, but the week to week stuff makes a Cowboys fan nervous. Just add this to the list of injuries Tyron Smith has suffered through this year.
