Cowboys release Fort Wayne native Jaylon Smith

The Dallas Cowboys have made a surprising mid-season move, and released Jaylon Smith, who has been plagued by injuries throughout his young career.

While Jaylon’s athletic ability was never in question – earning a second round selection from the Cowboys in 2016 – he was limited to only 8 games over two seasons due to injury. He tore his ACL during bowl practice in 2015, causing him to miss his entire rookie season. Jaylon then suffered a torn lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and a damaged nerve in his left knee during Notre Dame’s final game against Ohio State. Jaylon sat out the first two games of the 2016 season as well, as his recovery was slow and costly.
