Tyron Smith suffers stinger
By Todd Archer
TAMPA, Fla. -- Tyron Smith's night was cut short with 1:45 to play because of a stinger, but the rookie right tackle does not anticipate it affecting him for next week’s game against Philadelphia.
“I’ll be fine,” Smith said after Saturday night's game. “Just something I’ll have to shake off.”
Outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware has been working through a stinger and was limited in Saturday's game.
Smith said he has had a couple of stingers in his time at Southern Cal and with the Cowboys. He was replaced for the final few snaps by Jermey Parnell.
He is also playing with a dislocated finger on his right hand that forces him to wear a cast during practice but not during games.
