Well, our mystery man Jaylon Smith did not have a good time in 2016 season. If you recall he didn’t play a down for the Cowboys as a rookie last year, and he, unfortunately, suffered a severe left knee injury in his final college game at Notre Dame and experienced some nerve damage. Ever since then he has been working hard to regain full use of his left leg after the grueling surgery he had to have. After the injury and a hard recovery he actually still hasn’t fully regenerated and he will probably never will and never will be a 100%. He still suffers from drop foot and has to play wearing a brace. It was a tough period for him without any doubt, we just hope that the future will hold something better.

His 2017 season is shaping to be a bit different. The Cowboys expect Smith to start at middle linebacker and are proceeding as if he’ll be good to go from the opening kickoff. Smith even practiced with his teammates for the first time this entire off-season and thankfully hasn’t experienced any problems along the way. What is the unfortunate thing is the fact that he will probably never fully regain his college form that made him one of the elite prospects in the 2016 draft. Every high ranking representative of Cowboys that made any comment regarding this situation is so far happy and pleased with Smith’s progress, but they are also aware that he hasn’t played a down of football since Jan. 7, 2016.

My name is Miloš Kalajdžić and I come from Brčko DC in Bosnia. I was born on July 20 th 1988 and so far I obtained a BSc in economics and one year of working experience in my field of study. I am a very hard-working person who leaves nothing unfinished and halfway done. When I commit to something I give my best to make sure that everything is done the way as it is supposed to be. I like cars and everything that comes with them. My passion are American muscle cars, but unfortunately the closest I managed to come near one is behind my laptop watching an image of the new Chevy or Dodge and writing about it. But that’s ok I’m still optimistic. When I’m not behind the laptop writing I’m on the streets and auto shows admiring all stuff rolling on four wheels being propelled by a petrol engine!
