The Dallas Cowboys secured an enormous win on Sunday night time after they defeated the Indianapolis Colts, 54-19, however they could have suffered a fairly large loss as effectively.
Speaking with reporters after the sport, Cowboys proprietor/basic supervisor stated the workforce believes that cornerback Anthony Brown suffered a torn Achilles that will finish his season. “I’m sick for him, sick for us,” Jones stated, in keeping with Yahoo! Sports.
Brown, a sixth-round decide in 2016, began each sport for Dallas this season, working because the No. 2 cornerback throughout from All-Pro Trevon Diggs. Earlier within the season, that duo was joined by nickel cornerback Jourdan Lewis, however Lewis suffered a Lisfranc damage again in Week 7 and is out for the yr.
Rookie fifth-round decide DaRon Bland stepped into the lineup instead of Lewis and has largely fared fairly effectively, however now Dallas is getting dangerously skinny at an important place. Last yr’s second-round decide, Kelvin Joseph, took Brown’s place because the No. 2 perimeter nook on Sunday night time, and can presumably fill that position down the stretch. Another 2021 draft decide, Nahshon Wright, has been energetic for under two video games this season, and now might be counted on to supply depth.
The Cowboys do have robust depth at security with Jayron Kearse, Donovan Wilson, Malik Hooker, and Israel Mukuamu, however none of these gamers is well-suited to enjoying as an outdoor nook, and the workforce has seen Bland as a slot participant thus far. The Cowboys could have to usher in one other cornerback by way of free company to take care of these depth points.
