Dallas Cowboys Lose Key Star
The Dallas Cowboys lost a key star ahead of Sunday’s big game.
Coming into their Week 17 match-up versus the Washington Redskins, the stakes are clear for the Cowboys.
If they lose, they are out of the playoffs.
A victory will not guarantee Dallas a postseason spot, but a defeat definitely ensures that the team will be watching the postseason from home.
Unfortunately, it looks like the Cowboys will be going into the Redskins game shorthanded.
According to NFL Network insider Jane Slater, a key offensive line player will not be available for Sunday’s vital outing.
#Cowboys LT Tyron Smith is not expected to play today per sources. He missed 3 days of practice with a back injury. They’re still going to test it and have him go through drills in warmups similar to the approach for NY Jets game but remember he didn’t end up playing in that one

All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith will not be available to participate against the Redskins.
“Tyron Smith is not expected to play today per sources,” Slater said.
“He missed 3 days of practice with a back injury.”
The only way for Dallas to secure a playoff berth is with a win over Washington and then the Philadelphia Eagles losing to the New York Giants.
