After the injury that occurred against the Houston Texans on Sunday, the Dallas Cowboys will be placing Offensive Lineman Tyron Smith at the RT spot. So how did this happen? Well, during last week's game Offensive Lineman Terence Steele went down with a leg injury on a play. Not only did the Cowboys come close to losing against the Texans, but they also lost a valuable player that day.
Tyron Smith also suffered an injury, but that was earlier in the season (in practice) and now he's ready to make it back on the field. Tyron is a very good offensive lineman and I believe he has a lot of potential in him. I am definitely glad to see him return, although, it still would have been better to also have Steele with him on the line.
The main question is, does Tyron have what it takes to play right tackle?
Absolutely, but he may need a bit of time to get re-adjusted to the game of football. I'm expecting him to let a couple of guys get the best of him on Sunday, but I also expect him to bounce right back and be the Pro-Bowler we all know him as. After all, his main position is left tackle and for someone to jump over to right can be a big change at first.
Overall, the Cowboys have not had much success when it comes to injured players. Many players have gotten injured throughout the season (important players at that). You had Quarterback Dak Prescott in week one, Cornerbacks Jourdan Lewis and Anthony Brown, and now Terence Steele.
A problem that has occurred for the Cowboys in the last few years is injuries. If the Boys can be more careful, especially in practice, then we wouldn't have near as many problems and worries as this one.
Luckily, Tyron came back at the perfect time. I am sure glad he's here and I am excited to finally see him play in the 2022 season. Hopefully, he's ready and set for a great game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
