    I am very curious about Smith. I mean if he can actually make it back AND play at a high NFL level that last draft will be a killer. He sure looks the part. Add a bloodthirsty Passrusher and the Cowboys could be off to the SB.

    Desperate Cowboys fans reading tea leaves... lol

    Evidence for signs of recovery - IMO strongest signs are #1 #3 and #5:

    1. Jaylon treating hints at progress knowing that it will cause major speculation - and he does not seem like the trolling type
    2. reported progress seems to match a gradual functional recovery
    3. picture showing no brace at home while wearing shoes
    4. previous reports that Jaylon said he could not walk without the brace
    5. Brandt's comment about week 14 after dinner with Jaylon
    6. Jerry and Stephen saying that they are not ruling out Jaylon for this year

    Evidence against:

    1. Some with drop foot can limb around without brace, but is partially in conflict with #4 above
    2. Can Jerry Jone control his mouth for weeks if indeed there are signs of progress (even if recovery date may be after the season)?
    3. Leaving Jaylon on NFI does not cost a roster spot

    From Brandt interview:

    Gil Brandt: He's feeling good. I think that he could come back later on this season, maybe the 13th-14th game of the season. Now he's doing everything. He tells me he's cutting on it and so forth.

    As people have said, it's not necessarily something they'll announce to the media. Plus it may not be a light switch, it could take time for it to fully recover then strengthen the foot due to inactivity.

    They would have to keep it a secret from Jerry.

    gotta agree here, as long as Jerry doesn't know and there isn't a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue Label nearby it can probably stay under wraps
