Cowboys add Pro Bowl LT Tyron Smith, CB Anthony Brown to reserve/COVID-19 list

The Dallas Cowboys found out Wednesday that star linebacker Micah Parson was going on the reserve/COVID-19 list. On Thursday, it was reported that a crucial member of their offensive line and a starting member of their secondary will join Parsons.

Slater further reported that she was told a few players were feeling "under the weather" on Thursday. In brighter news, the NFL Network reporter tweeted out that Brown's wife gave birth to a baby boy on Thursday morning.

Smith has made eight Pro Bowls during his 11-year NFL career with the Cowboys and was named First-Team All-Pro in 2014 and 2016 as well. Brown has spent his entire six-year professional career in Dallas as well and has recorded career-highs in tackles (71), passes defended (17) and interceptions (three) this season through 16 games played.

The Cowboys are 11-5, have clinched the NFC East and will likely be the conference's No. 4 seed in the postseason. However, this is a slight chance that Dallas could move up to the No. 3 or No. 2 seed with a win in Week 18 over the Philadelphia Eagles, plus some help from a few other teams.
