Every Cowboys fan knows how important it is to have Tyron Smith protecting Dak Prescott when the Cowboys play the Atlanta Falcons. The Cowboys fanbase still has nightmares about the Adrian Clayborn game. We probably won’t know until sometime on Sunday whether Smith will be able to go, as of now he is listed as questionable.
Tyron Smith is questionable for Sunday’s game against Atlanta with a neck injury but Amari Cooper is not on the injury report and said he would be available despite a bruised foot. Anthony Brown was added to the report with a rib injury and is questionable.— Todd Archer (@toddarcher) September 18, 2020
With La’el Collins already out, if Smith is unable to go the Cowboys are going to have to go with some very inexperienced players on the outside, unless they shift someone from the interior to tackle. That would then leave a gap in the interior that would need to be filled.
The good news is that Amari Cooper doesn’t appear on the injury list at all, which means he is good to go. Jourdan Lewis also appears to be a full go for this week, which is good news considering Anthony Brown has been added to the injury list as questionable.
As for the Falcons:
Kendall Sheffield is officially ruled out for his second straight game, and starting left tackle Jake Matthews is listed as questionable for Sunday against the Cowboys. Rookie defensive tackle Marlon Davidson is doubtful. https://t.co/e7Vaf4gS0D— William McFadden (@willmcfadden) September 18, 2020
