The Dallas Cowboys are fortunate that wide receivers are considered to be a strong position. However, the latest injury diagnosis will really test their depth.
Michael Gehlken of the Cowboys, an insider for the team, said that wide receiver David Durden had a torn anterior cruciate ligament after undergoing an MRI today. He’s out for the near future.
Gehlken said that Durden’s injury was the latest of a series of ACL tears suffered by the Cowboys. It appears that Durden is the third Cowboys rookie to have suffered an ACL tear on his left leg in the last five day.
Durden was not drafted by the NFL in 2023. Durden was named to the First-Team All-Conference three times, between West Florida and Mercer.

CeeDee lamb, Brandin cooks, and Michael Gallup are the top three wide-receivers for the Dallas Cowboys. The fourth and fifth slot will be a hotly contested position throughout the season.
David Durden may have to wait until the year 2024 before he can compete.
