Dallas Cowboys' Tyron Smith facing surgery for torn hamstring, possible December return, sources say

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith is unlikely to return before December after his left hamstring tore and came off the bone during Wednesday's practice, sources told ESPN on Thursday.

Smith could have surgery as soon as Thursday, pending a potential second opinion, sources told ESPN.

He was hurt on a running play and went to the ground as he went to make a block on linebacker Leighton Vander Esch. He was able to walk to the locker room without any help, and the initial tests indicated the ACL in his left knee was intact.
