DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - The Dallas Cowboys' dominant defense was dealt a devastating blow on Thursday as two-time Pro Bowl cornerback Trevon Diggs exited practice with a knee injury.
In a statement released Thursday, the Cowboys announced that Diggs was diagnosed with a torn ACL, ending his season.
"Cornerback Trevon Diggs suffered a left knee injury during today’s practice. A subsequent MRI was performed that confirmed a torn ACL. A timetable for Diggs’ return to play has not been established, but he is currently projected to miss the remainder of the current season."
Diggs' injury reportedly occurred during 1-on-1 drills, with Diggs seen leaving the Cowboys facility on crutches. Prior to the injury, Diggs had not missed a game since the 2020 season.
Diggs, who is in his fourth year with the Cowboys, was coming off of a stellar performance against the New York Jets on Sunday, in which he held star receiver Garrett Wilson to two catches, while coming away with an interception.
Diggs, who signed a massive five-year extension worth up to $104 million in incentives this summer, is just two years removed from his 11-interception campaign of 2021.
According to Jane Slater of NFL Network and 105.3 The Fan, Dallas will turn to DaRon Bland at outside corner opposite Stephon Gilmore and Jourdan Lewis will move to slot corner, beginning Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
