Jaylon Smith’s Preseason Debut “A Blessing”; Gets Tackle In Start vs. Colts Jaylon Smith waited more than 19 months for that moment Saturday night. Not just his first game back on the field. His Ezekiel Elliott Jersey first tackle, too. In the first quarter of the Cowboys' preseason game , Smith raced in to stop Indianapolis Colts tight end Jack Doyle on third down and force a punt – the highlight of his dozen or so snaps working with the first-team defense at middle linebacker. It was Smith’s first game action since his devastating injury Jan. 1, 2016, in his final college game at Notre Dame: a torn ACL and accompanying nerve damage that still requires the use of a brace on his left foot. Saturday, Smith used his signature “Swipe” celebration after his milestone tackle. “It’s a blessing,” he said. “It’s a blessing to be out here. It’s a blessing to be playing for America’s Team. I’m so honored just to play the Ezekiel Elliott Jersey game I love. “From day one, I’ve believed in myself, and I thank all the supporters everywhere, even everyone who doubted me.” Earlier this week, Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Smith would likely be on a pitch count in his NFL debut. He played in the Cowboys’ first three defensive series, starting in place of Sean Lee as the All-Pro linebacker rested a hamstring injury. Smith’s debut was the latest step in his return to the field after the Cheap Jerseys 2016 second-round pick spent his rookie season on the Non-Football Injury list. The Cowboys and the athletic training staff have been deliberate with his recovery process, and he took scheduled rest days during the team’s padded practice work in Oxnard, Calif. “It was great to see him out there,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said. “He’s worked so hard to earn this opportunity to go play. He looked like he was around the ball, looked like he played with a great spirit. We’ll check out the tape to see how he actually played, but it was fun for all of us to see him out there." It’s been nearly two years since Smith got ready for a game at any level, but he said he didn’t treat it any differently. Same pre-game routine: Take a lap and line up at the 9-yard line for stretches. “I wore (No.) 9 my entire life,” he said. “(No.) 54, five plus four equals nine." What went through his mind as he took the field for his first play as a Cowboy? “'Jaylon, be you. Just be you,’” he told himself. “So, going out there, the thought process of was to get the call and have a sense of urgency. Once I aligned correctly, then go through my assignment in my head and read my keys and just do my job. “The rest will take care of itself. And that's what I did. It was a great feeling.” Want Dallas Cowboys Jerseys to buy one? welcome to our shop http://www.buyjerseysshop.us.Despite Attention, Cooper Rush Keeping His Focus On Earning A Roster Spot Like any undrafted rookie in an NFL training camp, Cooper Rush’s goal is to keep his head down, work hard and earn a roster spot. For the most part, the young quarterback is doing a good job with that. But he can forget about keeping a low profile from here on out. As he spoked to a mob of reporters on Tuesday morning, Rush acknowledged that it’s become a bit harder to remain oblivious to the world outside his playbook. “Well, now, yeah – usually I am, but now it’s a little bit different,” he said. That has everything to do with Rush’s fantastic play during the Cowboys’ preseason – but also the results of that play. The Cowboys promoted the rookie on Monday, giving him a chance to work with Ezekiel Elliott Jersey the second-team offense toward the tail end of practice. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett didn’t make any sweeping declarations about the move, or whether Rush is in competition with Kellen Moore to be the team’s backup quarterback. Both players worked with the second-team offense at times on Monday. But Garrett did say it’s a trend that will continue. “We gave him some work with the twos and he did a nice job with that,” Garrett said. “We moved Kellen Moore to work with the threes, we moved them back again during practice, we just wanted to see how each of those guys responded.” Rush got to this point in the first place by responding well to his opportunities. Garrett, Dak Prescott and others praised his efforts throughout the OTAs and minicamp, but he has demonstrated his ability to a national audience during the preseason. There are currently 23 quarterbacks with 30 or more attempts Dallas Cowboys Jerseys in the 2017 preseason, and Rush leads all of them with a quarterback rating Ezekiel Elliott Jersey of 125.2. Only two of those other 22 quarterbacks – highly-prized backup Jimmy Garoppolo and No. 2 overall pick Mitchell Trubisky – have ratings in the triple digits. “The way he prepares at that position gives him great chance to show when he comes into a game-type situation,” said Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones. “I've heard the word 'gamer.' I've heard it mentioned by the coaches in the coaching rooms that, boy, he's a gamer. He's just even better when he gets in a game.” It’s hard to hear Dak Prescott Jersey that and not think of Dak Prescott, given the way the Cowboys’ current starter raised his game during his preseason opportunities last summer. Rush’s situation is a little bit different, as there have been no injuries pushing him up the depth chart. But it’s easy to draw parallels between how the two young quarterbacks have so calmly responded to their chances in the spotlight. “I think he understands how you play this position – it’s from the neck up,” Prescott said. “You don’t let when you were drafted, when you were picked or anything like that affect you. I think he’s used that to motivate him. Him being undrafted, he knows how good of a player he is. He’s using that as a chip on his shoulder, and he’s smart. He’s learning.” All of that might be true, but Rush is too smart to think he’s made it. Asked Tuesday if he wanted to compete for the backup job, he kept the focus much closer than that. “I don’t even really think of it. I’m just so focused on making this 53,” he said. “That’s been my No. 1 goal, and I think staying true to that goal is what’s helping me keep progressing.” He’s got two more weeks to accomplish that goal, with five practices and two games between now Dez Bryant Jersey and cut down day. It might be too soon to speculate on the future, but things are certainly looking good in the present. “It’s not a bad sign,” Rush said. “So you just take it, you go in stride with it and you stick with what you’ve been doing.” Want to buy one? welcome to our shop http://www.buyjerseysshop.us.
