The Dallas Cowboys are shutting down offensive tackle Tyron Smith and cornerback Orlando Scandrick before the final game of the season.

The Cowboys are planning to move Smith and Scandrick to injured reserve, a source informed of the moves told NFL Network's Jane Slater.

The second half of Smith's season has been hampered by knee, back, groin and hip injuries. His right knee injury is landing him on IR after it limited him to three games in last week's loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Scandrick has sat out the last three games with two transverse process fractures in his back.
