Garrett cites growing comfort in LT Tyron Smith in efforts to protect Romo's blind side

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said left tackle Tyron Smith, 21, is “getting more and more comfortable” with his role protecting the blind side of quarterback Tony Romo with each practice. Smith played right tackle last season but switched sides with fellow starter Doug Free during the off-season.

“There are … challenges that he’s going to face going over on the left side,” Garrett said. “But he’s embraced those. And I think he’s getting more and more comfortable with his stance, with his pass sets, with his communication. I just think he’s an awfully good football player who’s getting better and better every day. It’s great to know that he’s 21 years old and has such a mature way about him and wants to improve every day. He’s certainly been a great asset to our football team.”
