Smith (neck) will be a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the Falcons, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Friday that Smith suffered a neck injury during individual drills, and he expects to have more clarity about the standout left tackle's status Saturday. With La'el Collins (hip) and Cameron Erving (knee) both already on IR, the Cowboys won't have much depth at the tackle position to fall back on if Smith is forced to miss time.
Smith (hamstring) took part in team drills during Friday's practice, David Helman & Rob Phillips of DallasCowboys.com reports.
The Cowboys had both their starting tackles back with the first-team offense Friday, as La'el Collins (undisclosed) also took part in team drills. Smith is on pace to be ready for Week 1, but various injuries have cost the 29-year-old 12 games over the last four seasons.
Smith (hamstring) returned to practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. "Everything is looking positive right now and moving forward like usual," the tackle said. "It's just a little nick. Getting past it and listening to the trainers."
Smith mostly did individual work on Thursday as he slowly begins to work his way back from a hamstring injury he suffered last week. The training staff will likely exercise caution when dealing with the veteran, so he could be limited in practice for some time yet.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Smith (hamstring) continues to progress from injury, David Helman of the team's official site reports.
Smith continues to miss practice after he exited Thursday's practice early. While it's unclear how long the injury is expected to keep him out, it's good news that Smith could return to the field soon. As of now, it's still too early to think Smith's status for Week 1 is in jeopardy.
Smith (undisclosed) exiting Thursday's practice early and was accompanied by an athletic trainer as he left the field, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
While the team hasn't released details yet regarding the injury, it apparently occurred during the individual drills portion of the practice. The fact that Smith was able to walk off the field under his own power is encouraging, but his history of neck and back issues is not. His exit was likely just precautionary, however, and at this point there's no reason to think Smith's status for Week 1 is in jeopardy.
Smith (back) is entering his 10th season with the Cowboys and remains under contract through 2023, The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith battled back issues and missed three regular-season games for the third straight year in 2019. He remains one of the best left tackles in the league when healthy, but if the past few seasons are any indication, he could miss a couple contests in 2020 due to his recurring neck/back problems.
Smith (back) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Redskins, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

Smith (back) isn't expected to play in Sunday's season finale against the Redskins, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports.
The team will still have the veteran test his injury in pregame warmups, however, Smith missed all three days of practice this week. It's likely that Smith will be held out of Week 17, and, in that case, Cameron Fleming is expected to draw the start at left tackle.
Smith is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a back injury, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith was unable to practice this week but still has a chance to play this weekend. It will take a lot for the 29-year-old to be held out as the Cowboys need a victory to have any chance at making the playoffs.
Smith (eye) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith didn't practice Wednesday, but Thursday's limited session puts him on track to suit up for Sunday's must-win tilt against the Eagles. The star left tackle told Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News on Thursday that his left eye is swollen due to a hair follicle, and that he expects to be fine for Week 16.
Smith (ankle) won't carry an injury designation for Monday's game against the Giants, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith was a limited practice participant this week as he continues to recover from the ankle sprain he sustained in late September, but the injury won't jeopardize his status for Week 9. The Cowboys' offensive line will be at full strength with Zack Martin (back/ankle) and La'el Collins (ankle) also ready to play.

Smith (ankle) is expected to play Sunday against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Smith worked as a limited participant Thursday and Friday before receiving the questionable tag, so it's not a major surprise he's expected to be available. The 28-year-old missed the last two games but looks as though he retake his starting post at left tackle Sunday.
Smith (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith finished the week with two consecutive limited practice sessions, and he appears to have a shot of suiting up for Sunday's divisional tilt. In the event that Smith is unable to play Week 7, however, Cameron Fleming will slot into the starting lineup at left tackle.
Smith (ankle) will be unavailable for Sunday's game against the Jets, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Smith went through a pregame workout with trainers, and they decided he is unable to go. The Cowboys' offensive front is in rough shape since La'el Collins (knee) has also been ruled out. Cameron Fleming is expected to fill in at left tackle.
Smith (ankle) has just a "slight chance" to suit up for Sunday's game against the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Smith didn't practice all week leading up to the contest, so his availability is certainly in doubt. The Cowboys are likely to be without La'el Collins (knee) for the game, so the depth could be severely tested. If Smith is officially ruled out, look for Cameron Fleming to be deployed as the team's starting left tackle.
Smith (ankle) is questionable for Week 6, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Smith has not practiced at all this week and will be a game-time decision. The word from the Cowboys' camp is that the veteran's chances of playing Sunday look good, but if Smith cannot suit up, Cameron Fleming or one of Dallas' interior linemen are slated to take over at left tackle, depending on if starting right tackle La'el Collins (knee) can play.
Smith (ankle) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

General manager Jerry Jones said Smith's (ankle) chances of playing Sunday versus the Jets are "looking promising," Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.
The Cowboys had no answer for the Packers' pass rush without Smith in the fold, so they'd benefit greatly by his return, especially since left tackle La'el Collins is week-to-week with a sprained MCL. Expect Smith to be monitored throughout the week with the hope he can participate in every practice.
Smith (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Packers.
Smith's absence means Cameron Fleming will have to step up on the Cowboys' line. Fellow starting tackle La'el Collins (back) is considered questionable, so the Cowboys could potentially be thin at the position come Sunday. Smith's absence will be his first this season.
