Reports: Cowboys DT Hill out for season with torn ACL
Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Trysten Hill suffered a torn right ACL on Sunday and will miss the remainder of the season, according to reports.
NFL Network and the Dallas Morning News both reported Monday that an MRI revealed the tear that Hill suffered during Sunday’s victory over the New York Giants.
Hill had to be carted off the field in the third quarter, prior to quarterback Dak Prescott’s gruesome injury later in the game. Hill was injured in pursuit of a tackle when the injury occurred.
Hill, a UCF product, was a second-round pick of the Cowboys in 2019. The 22-year-old had started all five games for Dallas this season after playing in seven games (zero starts) as a rookie. Hill had nine tackles on the season.
Hill was fined by the NFL earlier this season for a gator-roll tackle he put on Seattle running back Chris Carson. The tackle drew the ire of the Seahawks but Carson was able to play the following week. Hill was also the player who rolled up on Nick Chubb’s leg while the Cleveland Browns running back was pass protecting. Chubb is on injured reserve but is expected to return this season.
Veteran Tyrone Crawford and rookie Neville Gallimore are expected to see more action in Hill’s absence.
