“I thought Jason really did a tremendous job going in there and playing in that situation,” coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday. “Jason’s been in that two-minute situation for, you know, a couple of decades compared to Josh Ball. I think the personnel usage was really well done.”

The Cowboys opened a 21-day practice window for the Pro Bowl left tackle Tyrone Smith last week, and the hope is to see action against Jacksonville Jaguars this week. Smith suffered a hamstring strain that required surgery during training camp. He said he felt “really great” after the first practice of the regular season.
