Tyron Smith, who missed the Cowboys’ Week 2 tilt against the Falcons, is unlikely to play in the team’s game against the Seahawks on Sunday, Michael Gehiken of the Dallas Morning News reports. There’s optimism that Smith will be able to play next week vs. the Browns.
“Tyron’s making progress,” McCarthy said. “He’s getting better.”

More on the Dallas Cowboys
- Right tackle La’el Collins, who is on the “minor” injury reserve with a hip ailment, doesn’t appear to be on track to resume practice when eligible next week. Although, McCarthy said Collins’ status “hasn’t been set yet.”
- Seattle has scored on 100% of its RedZone trips this season and Sean Koerner of the Action Network believes we’ll see some immediate regression in Week 3. The analyst predicts that the expected high-scoring affair will deliver an under for bettors (the O/U is coming in as high as 57.5 in some books).
- If the Cowboys are going to stop Russell Wilson and the Seahawks, they’ll need defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence on the field. He’s listed as questionable with a knee injury. Lawrence practiced on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday.
- CB Chidobe Awuzie was previously ruled out with a hamstring injury and he’ll miss multiple weeks, per McCarthy. CB Trevon Diggs (shoulder) will start Sunday.
