Shark Bites

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) is questionable for Sunday night's game against the Colts. He missed the 1st 2 days of practice but returned for a limited workout Friday. HC Mike McCarthy said he expects Diggs to play, according to NFL.com.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs suffered an ACL tear in Thursday's practice and will miss the rest of the season. That leaves one of the top-performing defenses so far without its lead cover man. Fantasy wise, it's probably not a big deal at least for matchups with the Cardinals and Patriots the next two weeks. And we're not significantly downgrading the Dallas DST overall. But losing a top coverage player and big-play producer certainly dings the upside of the Cowboys defense.

The Cowboys and CB Trevon Diggs have agreed to a five-year extension worth $97 million (plus incentives), according to multiple reports. The $19.4 million annual average ties Diggs for fifth at the position. The deal comes as no surprise. Diggs heads into just his fourth year and won't turn 25 until late September. He announced himself to the public with a league-leading 11 INTs in 2021. That number (predictably) tumbled in 2022, but Diggs improved in coverage. One measure: He allowed a career-low 12.1 yards per catch, down drastically from 18.7 in 2021. Diggs also saw 10 fewer targets in coverage last season despite playing 80 more snaps in coverage, according to Pro Football Focus. Expect the young CB to remain an inconsistent contributor in fantasy football leagues. Diggs sits low in our 2023 IDP rankings.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) and LB Micah Parsons (illness) are questionable for Saturday's game against the Eagles. EDGE Dorance Armstrong (knee) is also questionable. LB Leighton Vander Esch (neck) is officially out, leaving rookie Damone Clark to start in his place.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs hurt his right thumb in Sunday's win over the Texans. He left briefly but returned and played 91% of defensive snaps for the game. Diggs told reporters afterward that he doesn't expect to miss further game time with the injury.

Cowboys CB Trevon Diggs (illness) and S Jayron Kearse (shoulder) are active for tonight's game against the Colts.
