Report: Tyron Smith left Cowboys loss in New Orleans on a cart

New, comments

The Cowboys had a bad game that might get worse with an injury.

NFL: Preseason-Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys had their first loss of the season in New Orleans... it was ugly.

Among the many bad things that happened to Dallas in the Big Easy was that their star left tackle, Tyron Smith, left the game (near the end of it, salt in wound) with what looked like an injury. Smith has had injury issues over the last few years but they’ve mostly been related to his back. While we don’t know what he’s dealing with, NFL Network spotted him leaving the game on a cart.

Jerry Jones said afterwards that it’s a high-ankle situation. That’s... not good.

Swing tackle Cam Fleming came in for Smith at the end of the game, and he promptly got beat shortly after he entered. Smith missing any stretch of time would be very bad for the overall state of the offense, and considering the fact that they are coming off of a 10-point performance they are not in any position to have setbacks.

We’ll have more here at BTB as information becomes available on Smith.

Update: 11:50pm

The Dallas Morning News reported that Tyron was standing and walking in the Cowboys locker room. Hopefully that’s a good sign.

Fingers crossed.
