IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) — Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith has his hands full with this Sunday’s home-opener against Tampa Bay.

He’s got agent Joe Panos heading to New York for a Friday meeting with the NFL commissioner’s office to appeal the $15,750 fine issued to him by the NFL for an illegal horse-collar tackle in the second quarter of the Cowboys’ season-opening 24-17 win at the Giants two weeks ago. And in between, he’s trying to create something even more positive than the result of the tackle, which prevented a Giants TD.

“We’re working on using that (dollar) figure as a target for a really good cause,’’ Smith told me Wednesday. “There’s a way we can all pitch in and help people.’’

Smith, the 21-year-old budding standout, is directing Cowboys fans to raise money for Dallas-based Camp Summit. Camp Summit’s mission: to provide barrier-free outdoor experiences promoting personal growth and independence for children and adults with disabilities.

“This can make the whole experience a really positive thing,’’ Smith said.

Smith is asking Cowboys fans to donate to Camp Summit and to click the “DONATENOW” button and in the dedication line type in, “I support Tyron Smith & Camp Summit!”

This Friday, Smith’s agent has a date in New York. This Sunday, Smith has a date with the Buccaneers. And next Tuesday, on the players’ day off? Tyron Smith has a date at Camp Summit to participate in activities with the campers.
