Cowboys rookie Tyler Smith learns OL versatility on the fly

FRISCO, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys offensive lineman Tyler Smith knew versatility would be a key to an NFL career. The former Tulsa left tackle didn’t figure there would be so much shuffling his rookie year. Smith is expected back at left tackle for a divisional playoff against San Francisco on Sunday night. He spent most of the season there after eight-time Pro Bowler Tyron Smith tore a hamstring in training camp. Tyler Smith worked at left guard before the elder Smith’s injury. The 21-year-old played there again late in the season, and now is going back with injuries forcing multiple changes.
