    “I think I played the whole game,” Smith told me over the weekend. “I was gassed. And I played on the right side. My mind and my body weren’t used to that. I mean, it was a great experience and I’m honored to have been chosen, but …”

    More than a month after the Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Smith is still feeling the effects of the game. He’s battling tendonitis in his right knee, a result of repeated snaps at a position – and from a stance – he hasn’t played since he was a rookie in 2011. But playing out of position is what happens when you’re a 22-year-old newbie making your first Pro Bowl trip.

    He should be fine with rest, but he needs to make sure he gets it. Tendonitis is only significant if you don't allow yourself to get rid of it.

    Tendinitis is inflammation, irritation, and swelling of a tendon, which is the fibrous structure that joins muscle to bone. Tendinitis can occur as a result of injury, overuse, or with aging as the tendon loses elasticity. It can also be seen in persons with body-wide (systemic) diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or diabetes.

    they only thing that makes it go away is rest and even then it always comes back, this isn't going to be the only year we hear about this.

    The Transition tag was announced at 10.04m for OL. That is what Dallas must pay him to activate his 2015 option. I think they have to decide this week. Should be a no-brainer Yes. Hopefully they can work out a long term extension before next Spring.

    Dallas can always pick up his 5th yr option in 2015 on his rookie deal. And then work out an extension.

    That's what I'm saying. It will be for 10.04m(the Transition tag for 2014).

    R.I.C.E. and different modalities will help to reduce the swelling and/or inflammation. Also, get your nutrition right and plenty of sleep is a necessity.

    Dez Bryant had knee tendonitis in training camp, and it flared up bad the week after the preseason game in Arizona. He took about a week off if I recall and we never heard about it the rest of the year. So it's not really time to panic.
