08/21/15 - T Tyron Smith will not play against the 49ers on Sunday because of a biceps strain. The injury is not considered serious. He should play against the Vikings in the third preseason game.

09/08/14 - T Tyron Smith celebrated his historic contract extension in the off season with a rough opening day. He opened the game with a false start. He was flagged for a leg whip and gave up a sack. He allowed only one sack last year.
07/30/14 - T Tyron Smith was the first ever pick of the Jason Garrett era when the Cowboys tabbed him ninth overall in the 2011 draft. It proved to be a quality investment that the Cowboys will lean on for years to come. Smith, who doesn't turn 23 until December, is coming off his first Pro Bowl season where he allowed just one sack in 2013.
The Cowboys gave him an eight-year contract extension, worth $97.6 million, making him the league's highest paid offensive tackle with an average of $12.2 million a year.
Add in the final two years of his rookie deal and Smith's package is worth $109.7 million, including a $10 million signing bonus and $40 million in guaranteed money.
"We talk about building a program and building a football team and he was the first player that we took three years ago in that draft," Garrett said. "He's just been everything we've wanted to build this program and this team around. His work ethic is fantastic. His mental and physical toughness are as good as I've been around. He just continues to grow and develop as a player. Technically, he's getting better. He's getting bigger and stronger. And he's just tough, competitive. He's what you want on your football team at a really, really important position."
He has started 47 of 48 games since his rookie season.
"After careful consideration, I decided this long-term deal was exactly what I wanted," Smith said in a statement. "Over the past three years, the Cowboys organization and Jones family have helped me through trying times and I felt this was my opportunity to return the gratitude. I am beyond grateful for the Cowboys staff, my teammates, and the fans, and wanted to ensure I was locked in as a "Cowboy for Life". I want to thank everyone for their support and look forward to having a star on my helmet for the remainder of my career."
