NBC 5 reporter Todd Barrie says via Twitter that he spoke with Cowboys starting right tackle Tyron Smith and that Smith told him that he would play tonight against the Jets.
Tyron Smith just told me he’s playing tonight. Said his knee feels good. #cowboys #nfl #jets #nfceast
Smith hyperextended his knee in practice Wednesday and was initially thought to be out for 2-4 weeks, but he’s recovered quickly and now could play despite receiving very little practice time during this week.
Todd Archer tweets that Smith’s pregame preparations have been without a brace.
Tyron Smith and Phil Costa working out early before the game. Neither in a brace.
Costa is expected to start at center. Even with Smith and Costa the Cowboys will start two rookies and a second year player in the offensive line.
Mike Jenkins and Miles Austin are both expected to play. Terence Newman and Martellus Bennett are out for Dallas.
