Cowboy running back Emmitt Smith escaped injury in a two-car collision Thursday morning in Irving, Tex.

Smith's car and another vehicle collided at an intersection as the player was driving to Valley Ranch, where the Cowboys practice.

The accident occurred about two miles from the training facility. A motorist turned left in front of Smith and their vehicles collided, police Lt. Richard Bailey said.

Neither driver was ticketed, Bailey said.

Cowboy owner Jerry Jones drove to the scene and picked up Smith.

Cowboys offensive lineman Erik Williams is out for the season after an Oct. 24 accident in which his Mercedes-Benz hit a concrete retaining wall. A Dallas County grand jury has been reviewing the Williams accident.


Free-agent defensive end Keith McCants, placed on waivers Tuesday by the Houston Oilers, was signed by the Arizona Cardinals.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

McCants, 26, is reunited with Cardinal Coach Buddy Ryan, who was the Oilers' defensive coordinator last season.
