For the first time in two weeks Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith will get some work on the field Friday, according to Jason Garrett, but he did not go through any individual work during the portion that was open to the media as he works through a groin injury. The Cowboys are likely going to take the decision on whether he plays to game time Sunday. Jason Garrett said Smith has made progress this week in his rehab. Sean Lee (hamstring) and Jeff Heath (concussion) will not practice.
