Dallas Cowboys guard Connor Williams tore his ACL on Thanksgiving, officially done for season

Awful news.

The day after the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving was already rough, given the low confidence in the team, but the bad news keeps on coming.

During the game against Buffalo guard Connor Williams left the game with an apparent injury (he’s been battling a few things this season). Connor ultimately returned to the contest which had some people feeling positive, but that was short-lived. Jason Garrett announced on Friday that Williams tore his ACL and is done for the season.

This is devastating for a Cowboys team that is hanging on by a thread at the moment. The coaching situation is one that many people are unsettled about, the Philadelphia Eagles could pull even with Dallas this weekend record-wise, and now the offensive line is without one of its starters for the rest of the year.

The Cowboys have Xavier Su’a-Filo as a reserve guard but he did not inspire confidence against the Bills. Considering that Connor tore it in late November his 2020 season is obviously in some question, but some people around the internet are optimistic right now.

Jason Garrett said that it was unclear when exactly Connor tore his ACL. Assuming it was when he first left it would be pretty amazing that he came back and played on it. He’s pretty tough.

All the best to Connor in his upcoming recovery process.
