Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Earns third sack
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith posted 12 tackles (six solo) and a sack in Sunday's 19-16 loss to the Texans.

Smith played 99 percent of the team's defensive snaps and his 12 tackles bested everyone except rookie Leighton Vander Esch. His sack of Deshaun Watson was Dallas' only takedown of the night, as the pass rush, though consistent, repeatedly failed to contain Houston's quarterback. The 23-year-old linebacker has accumulated 41 tackles and three sacks so far in 2018.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Eight tackles in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded eight tackles (four solo), including a sack, in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks.

Smith's sack gives him two on the year, besting his total from 2017. Fellow starting linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) could be out for multiple games, meaning that Smith will be the team's top linebacker. He'll aim to come out strong once again as the Cowboys host the Lions in Week 4.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Ten tackles in win over Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith racked up a team-leading 10 tackles in Sunday night's win over the Giants.

His huge hit on Eli Manning in the red zone will make a lot of Cowboys' highlight reels at the end of the 2018 season, but in the here and now, Smith's IDP is soaring. He has 14 tackles, including a sack, through two games to Sean Lee's nine, and it looks like the torch is being passed as the leader of the Dallas defense to the younger linebacker.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: One sack Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith recorded four tackles (three solo) and a sack across 62 defensive snaps in Sunday's loss to the Panthers.

Smith still may not be 100 percent healthy as he is coming off a recovery process stemming from a career-threatening knee injury he suffered in his final collegiate game with Notre Dame in January 2016, but he is showing increased mobility as time goes on. His next task, taking on the Giants Sunday night.

Cowboys' Jaylon Smith: Wants to ditch brace in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith hopes to play without a knee brace during the 2018 season, Kate Hairopoulos of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Smith recently parted ways with an Ankle Foot Orthosis foot brace that had been used as part of his broader recovery process from the career-threatening knee injury he suffered in his final collegiate game with Notre Dame in January 2016. After sitting out his rookie season with the Cowboys, Smith returned to play all 16 games in 2017 while sporting the brace, accruing 81 tackles, two forced fumbles and a sack. Even if he's still stuck with the brace when Week 1 of the upcoming season kicks off, the mere notion that Smith might be able to play without any extra stabilization offers encouragement that the leg won't be a recurring issue for the youngster throughout his career.
