The Dallas Cowboys defense has been humming after Week 2 of the 2023 NFL season.
They lead the league in total yards allowed, passing yards allowed, and points allowed per game.
The Cowboys only allowed ten points to the New York Jets and shut out the New York Giants in their season opener.
While Micah Parsons is the leader of the defense, Trevon Diggs coordinated the secondary.
Unfortunately, the Cowboys will continue their season without the All-Pro cornerback after suffering a torn ACL during practice.
Colin Cowherd sees his absence as a significant blow to Dallas’ campaign.
“It is a major blow… He really allowed you to play a certain way.” Cowherd said during a recent episode of FS1’s The Herd.

Cowherd also mentioned that Diggs allowed a passer rating of 1 to balls thrown in his direction through the first two games.
Diggs’ presence on the Cowboys’ defense was special.
While the Cowboys still have former NFL Defensive Player of the Year Stephon Gilmore, this could still pose for a problem for the Cowboys’ secondary.
DaRon Bland will have massive shoes to fill as Diggs’ replacement in the starting lineup.
Diggs’ injury is an unfortunate development for a player who signed a massive five-year, $97 million contract extension this offseason.NEXT: Mike McCarthy Comments On Drill That Led To Trevon Diggs' Injury
