Better to be safe, than sorry
The Dallas Cowboys drafted Jaylon Smith in the second round last year knowing he probably wouldn’t be on the field until 2017. A year later, and they’re still waiting to see him in action.
His debut in team activities will have to wait a little bit longer than initially expected with the Cowboys allowing him to participate only in meetings and walk-throughs during rookie minicamp this week.
Jason Garrett said a few weeks ago that Smith would be on the field and taking part in drills, which was promising news. Unfortunately, Garrett was a bit overzealous in saying that because on Sunday, he hedged his news.
“He’s going to do the veteran stuff on the field on Tuesday and Thursday, so I don’t anticipate him doing a lot on the field over the weekend,” Garrett said, via the Star-Telegram. “But he’ll go through the meetings and the walk-throughs [during the three-day mini camp].”
