Viewed as an emergency Tyron Smith replacement, Jason Peters has been working at multiple positions during his ramp-up period. The Cowboys’ usage of Tyler Smith at left tackle in Weeks 1 and 2 could lead to the rookie staying there.

The team used Peters at a few positions in practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Athletic tweets. While the Peters-at-LT plan may still be in play, Machota notes the veteran may be an option at left guard or right tackle going forward. Peters signed with the Cowboys days before Week 1 but has been ramping up to full activity since. It would seem the 40-year-old blocker is close to being activated.
