Team owner Jerry Jones has said the plan is for Smith to work every day in OTAs and have no restrictions for training camp. His left knee is 100 percent and the nerve issue that affected his foot is improved to the point that he might not have to wear a brace to open the season, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.

Summary

Smith was a consensus top 5 pick prior to a catastrophic knee injury in the 2016 Fiesta Bowl that left him with nerve damage and a condition known as drop foot that leaves a player unable to left up their foot. Cowboys EVP Stephen Jones recently stated that Smith is starting to regain feeling in his toes and could have full nerve regeneration by Week 1. If this is truly the case, the Cowboys could eventually have one of the most dynamic linebacker duos in the league in Smith and Sean Lee. This will be one of the more interesting situations to watch during training camp and the preseason. (May 14)
