Cowboys starting CB taken to locker room on cart vs Colts

Brown has had a resurgent year, but has had two of the worst corner performances in Weeks 1 and 12. If the club feels that 2021 rookie Kelvin Joseph is ready for primetime, which there hasn't been any evidence of yet, then Brown could be a place the team looks to find savings.  He has one year remaining on his deal, so his entire base salary would be savings if released.

The Cowboys cornerback room beyond Trevon Diggs has been a worry throughout the season. This became even more of a focus once slot corner Jourdan Lewis went down with a season-ending injury early in the season. Since then, DaRon Bland stepped into the nickel role and is finding form as the year goes along.

Meanwhile the starting boundary corner opposite Diggs, Anthony Brown, hasn’t been perfect by any means, but his role is paramount. Late in the third quarter in their Week 13 matchup against the Indianapolis Colts, Brown left the game and went into the medical tent. When he emerged it was to be carted off the sideline and into the locker room. It appears he suffered a serious ankle injury.

Kelvin Joseph entered the contest in relief of Brown and was subsequently beaten for a touchdown by rookie Alec Pierce. Pierce beat Brown earlier in the game for a big play to set up Indy’s first score. With such a thin cornerback room, opposing offenses will continue to target the odd man out and the severity of Brown’s injury looms large in this game and beyond.
