Anthony Brown out for the year with a torn Achilles

is out for the season after suffering a torn Achilles' tendon late in the third quarter in the win over the Colts Sunday Night.

Team owner confirmed the news last night after the victory. “I'm sick for him, sick for us, Jones said.

When Brown exited the game late in the third, he was replaced by .

Brown, a sixth-round pick in 2016, had started every game for the Cowboys this season, working as the No. 2 cornerback lining up across All-Pro .

The Cowboys are already thin at the position as they lost in week seven with a Lisfranc , which also ended his season. At this point, I would look for them to add another body, even for depth.

Rookie , whom Dallas selected in the fifth round, has looked great stepping into the lineup. Now, the Cowboys may have to turn to a guy like , who has only been active for two games this season.

Kendall Sheffield, who is currently on the Cowboys , is another guy to keep an eye on if Dallas does not go outside the team to add any depth at Corner.

The Cowboys have much more depth at , but it is hard to believe one of them would be able to jump over and play a role as a cornerback. If they do anything, look for Sheffield. He played with in Atlanta as the best option for now. He's appeared in 38 games throughout his career.

I looked into the market, and nobody outside of A.J. Bouye stands out.

He last played for the Panthers a season ago in the slot, and if the Cowboys added him, he would probably be asked to play a bit of a more significant role, but what could it hurt? Bouye has 16 career interceptions.

Tough loss, and hope he can recover well. AB is a little underated and had played better as the season progressed, IMO. Bland has played well, but KJ obviously has not.


Kelvin Joseph is a Stinker that should never have been drafted at all. He has no obvious technique or the mental capacity to play a demanding position like Cornerback in the NFL. An empty shirt and a wasted draft pick.


Hello Shane. I was very sorry to hear about Anthony Brown being lost for the season. I hope the Cowboys can find someone somewhere that can play opposite Diggs other than Kelvin Joseph. I was surprised and relieved that the Colts didn’t go after him continously. He’s not very smart and he can’t cover without drawing a pass interference call or just simply getting beat like a drum ALL THE TIME! What a tremendous waste of a draft pick.
