The fourth-year Alabama product had an interception and four tackles for a 2–0 Dallas team. It looked like Diggs was set to play a starring role on a bona fide Super Bowl contender.
However, Diggs’s season appears to have come to an end. Per reports from Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Diggs tore his ACL in practice Thursday and is out for the rest of the season.
Dallas’s fans were universally devastated.

High-profile fans like YouTuber Cameron Magruder voiced their displeasure.
The past antics of lifelong Cowboys fan Skip Bayless were referenced.
Some Dallas fans offered sacrifices.
