Eight-time Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith will miss Sunday night’s home game against the Washington Football Team due to a left ankle injury.

It will be the second straight game and fifth overall that Smith has missed due to the troublesome ankle.

He missed three games earlier this season before returning for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders. Smith then played in three contests and reinjured the ankle during a 27-20 road win at Washington on Dec. 12.

Smith sat out last Sunday’s 21-6 triumph over the New York Giants.

Smith, 31, has started all 143 games in which he has played during 11 seasons with the Cowboys.

Dallas also announced that cornerback Jourdan Lewis was placed on the COVID-19 list. He joins safety Malik Hooker, defensive tackle Trysten Hill and running back JaQuan Hardy in the protocol.

Defensive line coach Aden Durde and assistant special teams coach Matt Daniels also are in the protocol.
