Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith has yet to practice since missing Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears with back spasms.

Smith said the situation has improved since last Friday when the issue arose, forcing him to miss the game.

But he is still unsure if he will be ready to play Sunday’s game against the San Francisco 49ers. For now, Smith is following the treatment plan prescribed by the team doctors.

“We’ll see,” Smith said. “It’s spasms, just trying to get them to calm down.”

If Smith can’t play, Chaz Green will start at left tackle for the second consecutive week.

Cornerback Orlando Scandrick said he practiced full on Thursday for the first time since the Oct. 2 game against the Washington Redskins. He missed last week’s game against the Bears with tightness in both hamstring. He remains questionable for Sunday’ game against the San Francisco 49ers as the Cowboys might opt to give him another week to completely heal up.

After facing the Niners this week, the Cowboys return home to play Cincinnati on Oct. 9.

Rookie Anthony Brown would replace Scandrick in the nickel defense if he is unable to play with Morris Claiborne starting on the outside in the regular defense.
