The Dallas Cowboys suffered a blow to its defensive secondary.
Trevon Diggs, a University of Alabama alumnus, is one of the best cornerbacks in the National Football League.
The two-time Pro Bowl selection and first-team All-Pro sustained a torn anterior crucial ligament to his knee. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the news as the NFL’s best defense loses a leader. Diggs, a former second-round pick, has 18 career interceptions — including a league-high 11 in 2021. He also has 52 career pass breakups in his time with the Cowboys.
Diggs sent a heartfelt message to Cowboys fans on social media.
Thank you for all the prayers and I appreciate everyone for checking on me!
This is just God’s Plan. I will be back and better!

Hopefully, he will have a smooth recovery.
