Cowboys LT Smith to have neck surgery, out for year

Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Friday that left tackle Tyron Smith will have neck surgery next week and miss the rest of the 2020 season.

“My understanding is, it’s something that’s he’s been dealing with for some time,” McCarthy said. “If he doesn’t have the surgery, he’ll just continue to deal with this in the manner of how this season has gone. I mean, this is something that needs to be done.”

Smith, 29, started two games this season, playing every offensive snap in both the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Rams and last Sunday’s loss to the Cleveland Browns.

Smith is midway through an eight-year, $97.6 million contract that runs through the 2024 season. The ninth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, Smith is a seven-time Pro Bowl selection and two-time All-Pro (2014, 2016).

He hasn’t played a full 16-game season since 2015.
