Bad news for Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar, as Lance will likely miss the rest of the season due to a needed knee surgery.
This is especially disappointing after the Thanksgiving victory over the Raiders, where Lance ran for a punishing 82 yards on the ground.
An MRI on Dunbar’s left knee revealed that he suffered a posterior lateral corner injury that will need to be surgically repaired. The Cowboys believe he will miss the rest of the season, although it’s not clear if they’ll be putting him on injured reserve or holding out hope that he might be able to get back at some point in the postseason.
It's a tough break for Dunbar, who has been dealing with injury issues throughout the year. The Dallas rushing attack was key to beating the Raiders on Thursday, and it is that kind of balanced effort that will help Dallas reach the postseason. Hopefully, the Cowboys are able to produce these types of results on the ground without their number two back.
