Arguably the best blindside protector in the league missed all but two games last season with a nerve problem that the Dallas owner / general manager described as a nerve problem that turned into a gnawing neck sting and required corrective surgery.

“The facts are that he’s a 10-year veteran, and that surgery is important for the rest of his career at this point, not after the season, but at this point,” Jones told the Dallas Morning News last October . “And that’s of paramount importance to the fact he’s obviously playing because this is about the sensitivity of the type of nerve that is getting generated – stinger type, if you remember the notion of the nerves in your neck and shoulder area and this is the area we are talking about. ” But the bottom line is that we all agree that he should have an operation, which will keep him out for the rest of the year. “

After playing without Smith, Right Tackle La’el Collins and Right Guard Zack Martin for much of last year, the Cowboys have predictably returned to their former elite form – and that is quiet without Collins, who ended a five-game suspension.

In Week 6, with the OL paving the way, Dallas’ offense ranks second in three major categories: total yards (439.6 yards per game), rushing (172.8 YPG), and scoring (34.0 points per game) Game). This while only nine sacks were dropped on quarterback Dak Prescott.

According to Pro Football Focus, Martin (92.3) is the club’s top-rated lineman as of this writing, and center Tyler Biadasz (54.8) is the lowest. Overall, the Cowboys’ offensive line ranks # 1 in the NFL.

“Even without La’el Collins, Dallas’ attacking line has improved tremendously, not least thanks to Tyron Smith’s return to his best game after he is finally healthy,” PFF’s Sam Monson wrote on Wednesday. “Smith has an overall PFF rating of 91.2, the second best rating in the NFL. It is the first time since the 2015 season that it is above 90.0. Smith and Zack Martin are two of the best offensive linemen in any position in the league, and the rest of the cowboys group has been solid with no really glaring weaknesses. Since the unit is protected by the system, playcalling, quarterback and running backs, this is currently the best offensive line in football.
