ARLINGTON, Texas -- As the tensions between Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones and the NFL grow, Jones says he does not believe they have affected his team on the field.

"I don't in any way have a second thought about that, not at all," Jones said. "I really do want to be inspirational to our players, my players. And I want them to know that I'll do everything I can to help the Dallas Cowboys and help the NFL, and they should benefit from that."

Jones has been locked in a contentious battle with the NFL and the six owners on the compensation committee over an impending extension for commissioner Roger Goodell. Jones has been upset with how Ezekiel Elliott, who missed the second of six games due to a suspension handed down by Goodell for violating the personal conduct policy, has been treated by the league.

Jones has threatened legal action against the league should the extension be finalized before the entire ownership group can look at it. Next month, there will be an owners-only meeting regarding Goodell's deal at a meeting in Irving, Texas.

Jones did not deny what ESPN reported after he learned Elliott would be suspended: "I'm gonna come after you with everything I have."

"I won't address that here tonight as far as those particular comments," Jones said after the Cowboys' 37-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. "I've had really thousands of words with Roger over the years and so I don't want to address anything that was reportedly said or recorded."

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith will miss his second straight game with a groin injury, according to a source.

Smith went through a rehab session roughly three hours before kickoff that included resistance cords, pass sets and firing off the ball. On occasion he was noticeably favoring his leg.

With Smith out, Byron Bell will get the start at left tackle against the Philadelphia Eagles. With Smith out last week against the Atlanta Falcons, the Cowboys allowed eight sacks, including four on his replacement, Chaz Green. Bell allowed two sacks in his two series of work in the fourth quarter of the 27-7 loss.

There is hope Smith could be able to play on Thanksgiving against the Los Angeles Chargers in four days. He has not practiced since suffering the injury in the fourth quarter of the Nov. 5 win against the Kansas City Chiefs.
