    Cowboys Running Game Could Hinder After Injury to Tyron Smith

    The loss of Tyron Smith comes weeks before the first regular season game. The offensive line that was already thin lost its All-Decade player to a torn left hamstring that will keep him out until at least December.

    Smith has not played an entire season since 2015, and Dallas did next to nothing this to help ease a situation like this. The Cowboy's needs to run the football, and when they are most successful, the running game is dominant.

    Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard need to be the offense's focal point. “It's still a fact; we go as Zeke goes,” said yesterday on First Take on . The Cowboys go as the running game goes. Pollard might be the better back right now because he doesn't have nearly the carries Elliott does, but Elliott will continue to see the most touches. Let Elliott wear you down, then unleash Pollard and let him hit the with a gashing run.

    The loss of Smith will hinder the running game, no doubt about it, but we will have to wait for the regular season to start to see how bad it might be. Who fills the role of LT? First-round pick is the player that jumps off the screen immediately. Jones has also noted that they will look to fix the problem by looking at players on the roster and not reaching out to a guy like Eric Fisher or someone similar.

    Whether the Cowboys move some players around or they wind up someone, they also figure out a way to ensure the running game can still be a factor. I find it hard to buy into the possibility of moving players around on the OL this close to the regular season, trying to find a lineup that may work.

    This is why the Boys go 26 years of failure. That Jerry could think Elliott is the center of the offense is just delusional. That this writer could share the delusion is sad.
    The offense is about the pass attack and Dak . Just as it was about Romo.
    Yes, Jerry , in the mid 1990s, Emmett led the offense. Elliott is not Emmett and the year is 2022, not 1992. Everyone move along.

    EE first three years, yes, he was the focal point, no doubt. Unfortunately, IMO, he is not that player any longer. That said, if I am reading between the lines of what JJ said in that video, it sounds like he doesn’t have a whole lot of trust in his QB1 being able to carry this team. I don’t blame him there, but he created that monster.

    As far as replacing Tyron within the current roster, good luck there. How exactly would that be done? Do you put the 1st round rookie there and then McGovern at LG? Or you start that 5th rounder at LT or Ball? Or move Steele over? Is there something else I’m missing?

    Regular season is coming up soon, and they have some tough games early. My take, bring in a vet LT FA and do it quickly to get some continuity with the other linemen, otherwise, IMO, us fans may be in for tough season. My two cents.
