Cowboys News: Tyler Smith, Donovan Wilson questionable against Giants

Injury Report: Tyler Smith, Wilson questionable against Giants – Patrick Walker,

It would probably be a huge blow not to play Tyler Smith.

The witching hour is approaching for the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants, as the two clubs are scheduled to meet in the 2023 regular season opener at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, September 10 under the bright lights of prime time, but both enter the game with injury concerns. Tyler Smith and Tyron Smith lead that group of cowboys.

The elder Smith appeared on the injury report Thursday with an ankle injury that kept him limited in practice that day — described as a sprained ankle (mild sprain). The younger Smith did not participate in practice on Wednesday or Thursday after suffering a hamstring strain on Monday.

The final injury report provides a clearer look at both of them, as well as defensive end Sam Williams and safety Donovan Wilson.

Tyron Smith, OT (ankle) – Doubtful

Sam Williams, DE (toe) – Doubtful

Tyler Smith, OL (hamstring) – Doubtful

Donovan Wilson, S (calf) – Doubtful

Why the Dallas Cowboys might wait until the postseason to extend Dak Prescott’s contract – Clarence Hill, Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Prescott’s contract extension may take a little longer.

Given Prescott’s cap hit of $59 million in 2024, a new deal is needed to lower his cap number so they can sign other players, especially with deals for receiver CeeDee Lamb and linebacker Micah Parsons on the horizon.

Jerry Jones and Stephen Jones had different reasons why the Cowboys planned to wait for their radio shows on 105.3 The Fan Friday.

Jerry Jones said he would have to “cut four players” to give Prescott a contract extension before the end of the 2023 season and is not interested in doing that because “I want to use these players this year to win now.”

Dallas Cowboys prepare for rainy season opener in New York against Giants – Michael Gilken, Dallas Morning News

Cowboys may need umbrellas.

The game starts at 7:20 PM As of Friday afternoon, according to the hourly forecast from the National Weather Service, there is a 72% chance of rain and a 30-50% chance of thunder throughout the game in East Rutherford, NJ. Less than a quarter inch of rain is expected during that period.

If these are indeed the conditions, there is little reason to expect the weather to have a visible impact on how running and passing are distributed in the game. While rain can affect the equipment a team wears, including cleats, wind is more restrictive to the passing of the game.

Jerry Jones: The Cowboys are “as good as we’ve ever been” – Todd Archer, ESPN

Jerry Jones looks at this season with expectations.

“After some years, I realized we were in better shape than others,” Jones said in a conversation that will be broadcast on ESPN’s “Sunday NFL Countdown.” “There are parts of this team we’re as good as we’ve ever been since I was a Dallas Cowboy.”

Ahead of Sunday’s season opener against the New York Giants, Jones isn’t calling 2023 a Super Bowl season or a failure.

“I feel strongly that we should aspire, frankly, to do anything at any time that can make us better now to compete at this level,” he said. “I think I’m saying a lot when I say that. It’s not about the coming years. The good news is that you can make decisions that can help you now first and foremost, but they can also be a plus for the future.” .These are the people I look up to and give up on every single day.”

Here’s How Cowboys vs. Giants Will Hold Fans’ Attention in Week 1 – Mike Crum, Cowboys Wire

Offensive line is the question.

Dallas has five high-quality starters on paper but is riddled with question marks. Does Tyrone Smith have anything left? Is Steele fully back and ready after recovering from an ACL injury? Has Martin lost a step? Then there’s the hamstring problem that just came up for Tyler Smith.

This mismatch can be a game changer. If the Cowboys can’t disrupt the Giants’ front four, Dallas could be stuck in a lot of third-and-long situations, which led to a lot of Prescott’s interceptions last year. Tackle New York’s defensive line and get an easy win; Let them run amok in crime. There can be turmoil in business.
