Smith won't play in the Pro Bowl due to neck and elbow injuries, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
Smith missed three games of the final six games of the regular season due to the stinger and right elbow issues, but was able to play through the injuries in both playoff games. Neither injury appears overly serious, but it isn't worth taking the risk to play in the Pro Bowl.
Smith was a limited participant in practice Tuesday and Wednesday, but he was a full go Thursday. The veteran left tackle will resume his usual starting role versus the Seahawks.
Smith was a full participant in the first two practices of the week, but he was downgraded to limited for Friday's session. The Cowboys won't risk anything with their starting left tackle, especially with their No. 4 playoff spot locked in. Expect Cameron Fleming to fill in for Sunday's game.
Smith (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the Colts, Brandon George of The Dallas Morning News reports.
After missing a Thursday night game against the Saints in Week 13 with a neck stinger, Smith returned to action for the Week 14 victory over the Eagles and came out of it no worse for the wear. The Cowboys still restricted Smith's participation in practice Wednesday through Friday this week, but his availability for gameday was never believed to be in much doubt.
Smith (neck), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Colts, is expected to play, sources tell Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The left tackle sat out the Cowboys' Week 13 win over the Saints before returning to action in the Week 14 victory over the Eagles. Smith experienced no apparent setbacks out of the contest, so he should be ready to handle a full snap count again Sunday.
