Dallas Cowboys cornerback Trevon diggs has performed historically well at this position through seven games. However, a serious injury could slow down his momentum.
Diggs is currently undergoing treatment for an ankle injury. He spoke to the media Thursday. Although Diggs said it was improving, the Cowboys cornerback did not give a timeline for his recovery.
It’s improving every day. Just keep treating it. But it’s getting better. It’s getting better every day. Diggs stated that she felt better.
Diggs has participated fully in practice to this point. However, ankle injuries can be difficult especially in a position such as cornerback.

Trevon Diggs had seven interceptions during the first six weeks, totaling 142 yards and two touchdowns. In that time, he also defended 11 passes.
He is the league’s leading scorer with all four marks, despite not adding anything in Week 8 against Minnesota. Cousins chose to throw far less than he did, and he only had one tackle during that win.
Diggs is a clear front-runner to win First-Team All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors at his position. If he can reach double-digit interceptions before December, Diggs could break the 70-year-old single-season record of 14, which Night Train Lane held.
He hopes that the ankle injury won’t hinder his efforts.
