If it's not one thing it's another with the 2020 . , who missed two games due to neck stingers from an that occurred on September 17, returned last Sunday in the Cowboys 49-38 loss to the . However, that return may be short-lived.

According to Jon Machota of The Athletic, Smith will miss practice Thursday as his neck issue continues to be an annoyance.

Cowboys Mike McCarthy gave an update on his star on Thursday.

“He’s further back than he was this time last week, would be the best way to describe it,” McCarthy said.

If Smith can't go this Sunday vs the it will be the third game he's missed already in 2020, which would equal the number of games he's sat out in each of the previous four seasons after only missing one start in his first five seasons.

I don’t see the Boy’s recovering from this if Smith is lost for the year. The Cowboys need Smith to bring stability to the line. Boys now missing Smith, Frederick and Collins from last year’s line. Dak is going to be running for his life the rest of the year. We mat well have seen the last of Smith in a Cowboys uniform. He has been a phenomenal player in his time in Dallas but his injury problems over the last 5 years has made him a serious liability.


It’s what they get for always assuming they have a solid line. Teams are built from the trenches out. Not from flashy players. Jerry will never get that. Hell, draft a running back every couple years. No need to over pay for them. Concentrate on solid lines if you want to build a strong team
