FRISCO, Texas — Every step Jaylon Smith took Wednesday during the Dallas Cowboys‘ organized team activity was watched.

For the first time since the Cowboys drafted him in the second round in 2016, Smith took part in drills in front of the media in his comeback from a severe knee injury.

He went through individual drills with the linebackers, sprinting from one side to the other, punching a bag and simulating a tackle. He went through the walk-through portion of run drills. He went through special-teams drills, working on the kickoff return unit.
