The Cowboys have a very limited time to find Tyrone Smith.

Their financial condition can make the business viable on paper.

Smith is expected to be sidelined until at least December

due to a knee avulsion fracture and subsequent hamstring tear.

The Cowboys will not execute a trade for a stop-gap solution,

with Pro Football Network's Aaron Wilson tweeting that the Texans are not expected

to make Laremy Tunsil available to Dallas (or any other club).

The two-time pro bowler has two years left on his contract,

which includes a $17.7M cap hit given the Cowboys' current financial situation.

Wilson cites the dead cap charge (over 16.6M) that would be generated

by trade as unlikely as such a move at Houston's end.
