Smith lost seven yards on two carries during Sunday's 27-20 win over Tampa Bay.

It was the worst showing in what has been a mediocre statistical season for Smith, who has reached double-digit yardage just five times all season. A measly 2.9 yards per carry mark coupled with only seven receptions in 15 games hasn't helped Smith's cause, but the bigger stumbling block for him has been the fact that No. 1 back Ezekiel Elliott hasn't missed a game while handling sizable workloads each week. The Cowboys have little at stake in the regular-season finale against the Giants -- they'll be the NFC's No. 4 seed no matter what -- so it's possible that Smith gets his most work to date if Elliott and the team's other starters are pulled early in the contest.
