After Dak Terminate Deal: Trevon Diggs Agree With Raiders For 2-years

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs out for season after tearing ACL in practice



Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs has suffered a season-ending knee injury.




Diggs, who turned 25 on Wednesday, tore his ACL during practice on Thursday, the team confirmed. Diggs went down during 1-on-1 drills and his ACL injury was later confirmed by an MRI. The news comes after Diggs was seen exiting Thursday’s practice on crutches.




The Cowboys said a timeline for his return to action has not been established, but Diggs is expected to miss the remainder of the 2023 campaign. The two-time Pro Bowl corner said he “will be back and better!



“Thank you for all the prayers and I appreciate everyone for checking on me!” Diggs said on social media Thursday in his first public remarks since his injury. “This is just God’s Plan. I will be back and better!”



Diggs, who signed a five-year, $97 million contract extension with the Cowboys in July to become one of the league’s highest-paid cornerbacks, is entering his fourth season in Dallas after being selected out of Alabama in the second round of the 2020 NFL draft.



In 47 career games, Diggs has registered 18 interceptions, including a league-high 11 in his breakout 2021 campaign. In two starts this season, Diggs had one interception and one forced fumble while allowing just a 1.0 passer rating when targeted in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. He has been a vital part of a dominant Dallas defense that has only allowed 10 points to opponents through two weeks.

Star pass rusher Micah Parsons sent a message of support following the news.
