    Breaking: LT Tyron Smith Suffers a Torn Left Hamstring, Out Indefinitely

    The were hit with horrible news Wednesday night as they learned LT Tyron Smith suffered a torn left hamstring. According to reporter Todd Archer, Smith's could sideline him for months, but more tests will be conducted on Thursday to determine the severity of his injury.

    His injury comes as a surprise as there was positive news during the evening around his ACL being intact, and LG told the media that Smith gave him a reassuring grunt after he was injured during practice.

    But with Smith now out, the Cowboys may be pressured to either explore the idea of sliding LG over to LT or sign a . While some fans may say, “they could just throw in Smith's backup,” if you haven't kept up with the team, his current backup is LT .

    And I'm not knocking on Waletzko's talent, but he hasn't seen much action this .

    But, if the franchise elects not to go with either Smith, Waletzko, or any other guy on their current roster, there are three who have experience under their belt they could consider.

    They include Nate Solder, Eric Fisher, and .

    While those three may not be the sexiest of names, having a veteran along that line could do wonders for the already-young Cowboys , and they could hold down the fort until Smith gets back.

    For now, the main thing fans can do is light their Cowboy candles and pray that Smith's injury isn't too serious because it would be a shame if we couldn't see one of the most talented guys at his position available for the Boys on Sundays.

    Plus, I wanted to see that Smith x2 action, so I'm crossing my fingers that he's back sooner than later.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery, Tyron.

    It’s long past time to wash your hands with Tyron Smith. Hurt EVERY YEAR with one thing after another. Even if does make it back this season, time to move on from him. Haven’t played in the pre-season and gets hurt at a practice session. Ridiculous to keep being disappointed season after season with Smith! Next Spring go get a GOOD young tackle in the draft and when Tyron Smith’s at home getting hurt in his backyard it won’t affect Cowboys Fans or the Team! To He’ll With This Guy And His Many Injuries!!!

    TS has served the boys well and as I’ve stated before I believe that he is the second best OT the Cowboys has ever had with Eric Williams being the best! BUT it’s time for him to pick it up and ride into the sunset and enjoy life while he has relatively good health! The bottom line is we that like to complete think in our minds we can still preform at the same level as if we were in our twenties when in Reality ole Father Time catches up with us and shows us differently!!

    Forgetting about Rayfield? If he’s your 3rd best, you’ve done well at the position …

    Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time. Maybe better now than later. Now they will most likely have it bring in a vet free agent. Question for everyone.

    Any thoughts on who would be best?

    Eric Fisher was decent last season with the Colts despite coming back quickly from a torn Achilles very late in the previous season. That would be my first choice.

    Second choice, Nate Solder. Likely washed up, but still better than Ball or an injured rookie in Waletzko.

    Jason Peters was probably the best at his peak, but that peak was many injuries and a long time ago. He’s 40 years old and even though he’s been “staying in shape”, he wasn’t in the greatest shape with Chicago last year.

    I’d still prefer Peters. Playing in CHI likely makes you look worse than you really are. Fischer has simply never lived up to his pedigree … ever. Solder is a turnstile, but with rings (something this team needs?).
