Since 2016, Smith has missed at least three games or more every season. A few have been for veteran rest but most have been due to nagging neck and shoulder problems, plus other issues like his ankle in 2021.

Getting Tyron back for this Sunday would be huge for the playoff-bound Cowboys as they tangle with another NFC contender in Arizona. Currently locked in a three-way tie with the Bucs and Rams for seeding purposes, and only a game back of top-seeded Green Bay, Dallas should treat this one as an early postseason game.

While they've been slipping lately, the Cardinals were the NFC's frontrunner for much of the year and are still one of the top teams in the conference. After weeks of picking on their lesser division rivals, this a good test for the Cowboys as they get ready for the tournament.
