Report: Cowboys' Tyron Smith (ankle) to have MRI after leaving practice

Wednesday October 15th, 2014

Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith left practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury that he's believed to have suffered in Sunday's victory over the Seattle Seahawks, according to a report from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The report says that Smith left practice to undergo an MRI after abstaining from team drills. 

On Monday, Smith became the first offensive lineman to be named offensive player of the week since the Kansas City Chiefs' Brian Waters in 2004.

Owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that starting right tackle Doug Free will likely miss three to four weeks with a foot fracture. The player expected to take Free's place in the starting lineup, Jeremy Parnell, reportedly practiced on a limited basis due to a chest injury.

The Cowboys announced Wednesday that they have signed offensive tackle Tony Hills from the Miami Dolphins' practice squad.
