Two Cowboys Tackles Continue to Miss Practice Getting Ready for the Jets

A couple key Cowboys players are still out of practice on Thursday, as PFT reports that left tackle Tyron Smith and right tackle La’el Collins are not on the field for the team.

There was hope that both would be ready to go for the game against the Jets on Sunday, but right now it’s a big unknown if they will be able to take the field.

Neither player took part in practice on Wednesday and head coach Jason Garrett said that they would both be on the sideline for Thursday’s session as well.

“Hopefully they can practice before the week is over with,” Garrett said, via Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News.

Smith missed last Sunday’s loss to the Packers with an ankle injury and Cameron Fleming took his spot in the lineup. Collins hurt his knee during the game and gave way to Brandon Knight.

Garrett also said that linebacker Leighton Vander Esch will miss a second straight practice because of illness, so there will be several things to watch once the Cowboys close out the practice week on Friday.
