It's brutal news for Pollard, who enjoyed a bit of a breakout campaign in 2022 as he began to supplant Ezekiel Elliott as the Cowboys top running back. He tallied over 1,000 rushing yards for the first time in his career and was set up for a nice payday in the offseason whether it be from Dallas or elsewhere. The injury will take an estimated three months to recover, so the market for the former Memphis Tiger may dwindle just a bit.
