    Jerry Jones Confirms Jaylon Smith Will Play Vs Colts On Saturday

    With the NFL world awaiting comments from now member in regards to suspended Cowboys' , Jones instead delivered much more relevant news about a player his team will actually have on the field come their  home opener against the Colts – LB , who will make his official Cowboys debut on Saturday.

    Smith has been working towards seeing live game action at an impressive pace since the start of , repeatedly practicing in pads and looking like the all-around stud he was out of Notre Dame before his despite playing with a “Richie brace”.

    On Monday, Smith was noticeably excited after ending the Cowboys' practice with his signature swipe move and unabated sack of the quarterback. Doing this in a practice that has amazingly become a regular part of Smith's life as the 34th overall pick in the 2016 draft, it is hard to imagine how #54 will be feeling when he puts everything together on Saturday to actually line up and play for the at .

The Cowboys have failed to put much long-term, consistent talent next to at linebacker in particular.

    Smith's NFL debut will come exactly 597 days after the scene in the above picture unfolded, as Smith suffered a gruesome injury in a New Years Day bowl game against Ohio State, where Ezekiel Elliott was there to console his eventual Dallas teammate.

    The Cowboys as a team have collectively shown their support for Elliott through his off-field issues, and I expect even more love to be directed Jaylon Smith's way from his teammates, coaches, and fans on the field Saturday – as the Cowboys will host one of their most intriguing preseason games in recent memory, with other key starters such as QB expected to participate.
