Source: Season may be over for Cowboys’ Smith

The Dallas Cowboys are uncertain whether Tyron Smith will be able to play again this season and are considering placing the star left tackle on injured reserve because of a neck injury, a team source confirmed to ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Smith’s neck injury flared up in practice following the Cowboys’ season opener, and he missed the next two games before returning for Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns. But he has suffered a setback, the source confirmed, and missed practice Wednesday.

Smith worked with the Cowboys’ rehab group during Thursday’s practice because of the neck issue. He played every snap last week against Cleveland, but coach Mike McCarthy said Smith is “further back than at this time last week.”

NFL Network first reported the possibility on Thursday that Smith could miss the rest of the season.

Smith has been a Pro Bowler for the past seven seasons. He is a two-time first-team All-Pro and has twice been named to the second team.
