2. That’s my cornerback!

The word injury spooks Cowboys Nation right now. Look, I get it: Injuries are part of the league and this year is unlike any other. The Cowboys were already thin on defense, but taking away a spotlight definitely hurts.

Yes, Trevon Diggs is growing before our eyes. He has his pains, but he’s also had gains.

With him on the sidelines, the defense is now third-rate with lackluster depth. The defense was already in an “oh gosh, not again” default mode. Now, the nasty narrative trend continues with the best, and most exciting, defender sidelined.

With Diggs in the lineup, you could see some hope and growth for the upcoming years. Now, progress is slowed and the Dallas Cowboys will face even more explosive plays from opposing teams. It’s not going to be pretty.

This is a big loss for the team. Diggs has been a small bright spot on Sundays. Now, we’ll see how big of an impact he’ll have now that he is out four to six weeks.
