Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevor Diggs suffered a knee injury at practice on Thursday after getting an MRI, the Cowboys fear became a reality.
According to NFL Network’s Tom Peliserro, Trevon Diggs tore his ACL and is out for the year:
The Cowboys had suspected Diggs’ injury would be bad after the 25-year-old had to use crutches to get to the MRI room.
Diggs and the Cowboys agreed to a five-year, $97 million contract extension in July. The deal, which could be worth up to $104 million, was structured to keep him in Dallas through the 2028 season.
He snagged his first interception of the season in the Cowboys Week 2 win over the New York Jets last weekend. In a defense that has allowed just 10 points over the first two games, he is expected to play a major role.
