If there is one universal truth about this season for the Dallas Cowboys it is that the hits just keep on coming.
We have seen Dallas lose player after player, starter after starter, seemingly every week of the nine-game long campaign to this point. Injuries have attacked at all levels and removed some of the most important contributors on the team. Needless to say they are a huge reason why the Cowboys are 2-7 at the bye.
Sunday was a more promising game from the team as far as outlook was concerned, but speaking of concern, it hovered over things in the aftermath regarding rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs. There was an air of question as to his status moving forward and the report is in, and it is not good.
Trevon Diggs suffered a fractured bone in his foot and is out 4-6 weeks
The Cowboys are already operating without their top cornerback in Chidobe Awuzie and now will be missing their second-best player at that spot as well. Trevon Diggs suffered a fractured bone in his foot according to NFL Network and is out 4-6 weeks which could mean he is gone for the rest of the season.
Sources: #Cowboys impressive rookie CB Trevon Diggs suffered a fractured bone in his foot late on Sunday and is out 4-6 weeks. Based on the timing, it’s possible his 2020 season is over. Either way, Diggs will make a full recovery for 2021. A big loss to that defense.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 10, 2020
Dallas will have seven games left when they return from their bye so practical wisdom might suggest letting Diggs get right in the name of 2021. Saivion Smith spelled Diggs when he left the game against the Steelers so this could be a bumpy road all the way to January.
CeeDee Lamb is obviously very special but Trevon Diggs has turned into a bit of a star on his own. The future is bright for him in the Cowboys secondary, but it appears his rookie season might be done.
