Smith will see more action in the early part of the season than the Cowboys initially intended due to Anthony Hitchens' knee injury, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. "It will definitely cause him to have an accelerated approach to how this year starts for him," owner/GM Jerry Jones said Tuesday. "So, yes, I think it's going to be more activity, more snaps for him right off the bat."

2016

A devastating knee injury that included nerve damage ended a fantastic college career for Smith and took him out of a possible top five draft spot, but the Cowboys were comfortable enough with the risks involved that they selected him early in the second round anyway. It'll be a long hard road to recovery for the linebacker, with no guarantee at the end that he'll be able to return to form, but if he does the Cowboys will have a dynamic, game-changing player in the middle of their defense. Don't expect to see him on the field in 2016, though.
