Per Mike Garafolo and Jane Slater, Cowboys LT Tyron Smith is gathering medical opinions on his neck after suffering a setback this week and is considering shutting himself down for the rest of the 2020 season.
Smith has been dealing with stingers in his neck that caused him to miss two games so far this season. He returned for this past week’s game against the Cleveland Browns but has not practice this week after appearing to suffer a setback.
Dallas has already lost starting RT La’el Collins for the year due to hip surgery, so it would be a big blow for the Cowboys to be without their other bookend tackle the rest of the way.
Smith, 29, is a former first-round pick of the Cowboys back in 2011. He signed a ten-year, $109 million contract with Dallas back in 2014 that includes $40 million guaranteed.
Smith was set to make a base salary of $10 million for the 2020 season until he reworked his deal back in August.
In 2020, Smith has started two games for the Cowboys at left tackle.
