In this story:
FRISCO – The Dallas Cowboys are obliged to move on without star cornerback Trevon Diggs after he tore his ACL early in the season. But “out of sight, out of mind” is not quite the mindset here, as Diggs has remained a sideline presence for the 4-2 Cowboys … though that might be tabled for a bit.
And why? Because his rehab – a lengthy process to be sure, in anticipation of a healthy return for the 2024 season – is about to begin following his Tuesday surgery.
Diggs underwent his ACL surgery on Tuesday, and word is the doctors did not encounter any problems beyond what has been anticipated. Why the delay in the procedure? Conventionally, doctors want to wait until all the swelling is cleared up before performing the surgery.As the Cowboys wait excitedly for Diggs to get back on the field in order to show off why the playmaking star merited his recent five-year, $97 million contract, Dallas at 4-2 pushes forward while relying largely on the cornerback tandem of Stephon Gilmore and DaRon Bland to man the boundaries. Can they pick up the slack for the Cowboys in the department of ball-hawking, as Diggs famously recorded 11 interceptions two seasons ago? Can a trade help fortify the secondary as the NFL swap deadline looms on Oct. 31?
The Dallas Cowboys are (trust us!) working on that. And rehabbing standout Trevon Diggs? We certainly trust that he is working toward on the field success in 2024.
