December 30 OUT-SMARTED The Dallas defense bailed out to help the home side hold onto its first-half advantage despite the Dallas Cowboys being outplayed twice in a brief second-quarter period by the Detroit Lions.
Clever play number one: Just short of the goal line, CeeDee Lamb was reaching in for a second touchdown throw from Dak Prescott when a Detroit defender batted the ball free, causing Lamb to fumble through the end zone and give up a touchback.During the next Detroit drive, Dallas’ defense held. However, the Lions executed a brilliant fake out of fourth-down punt posture, and their drive was maintained with a long completion on the play.
However, once more, Dallas’ defense held, forcing an incomplete on fourth down and preserving the Cowboys’ 7-3 lead with Detroit in the red zone.
DEC 28 TYRON GOOD There’s excellent news at left tackle according to the Dallas vs. Lions FINAL Practice and Game Status Report.
Tyron Smith is next, moving up to “questionable” (back). On Saturday night against the visiting Lions, he is anticipated to play.
O-LINE CONCERNS DEC. 27 Include all of this in the explanation for Matt Waletzko’s recent activation from injured reserve to the 53-man roster.
The Practice Injury Report is out as Dallas gets ready for the Detroit Lions’ Saturday night visit. Three Cowboys offensive linemen are included in the list.
Tyron Smith is not selected. That should come as no surprise when he resolves his back problem.
Zack Martin is not selected. Hopefully, that will only be a rest day even if he is experiencing quad discomfort.
Yes, but how is Chuma Edoga appearing? He’s the utility lineman that replaced Tyron at left tackle in Miami last week, and he’s had a toe issue
As they prepare for the postseason, the 10-5 Cowboys are optimistic about their general health. Upon perusing the injury report from Wednesday, it is evident that all of this calls for close observation.
DEC 26 ‘INJECTION’ TALENT? Tyron Smith, a left tackle for the Cowboys, was sidelined with a back injury on Sunday and did not show up for practice on Tuesday at The Star.
However, Jerry Jones, the owner of the Cowboys, is speaking candidly and confidently about Tyron being able to play when the Detroit Lions visit town on Saturday night.
“Perhaps Tyron will stop by,” Jones said to @1053thefan. “We gave him an injection last week, and that typically helps. I hope we get to have him. Tyron Smith is a significant difference maker.
Both of the playoff-bound clubs’ complete injury practice report is available above.
PRESCOTT FINDS COOKS DEC 24 With 17 seconds remaining in the second half, the Dallas Cowboys had trailed the Dolphins, giving fans little reason to celebrate.
Late in the fourth quarter, though, the Cowboys were able to grab the lead again when Dak Prescott connected with Brandin Cooks for an eight-yard touchdown throw in the end zone, giving Dallas a 20-19 lead.
