On Friday afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys received some bad news.

According to a report from NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, offensive lineman Connor Williams suffered a torn ACL and is now out for the season.

Williams suffered the injury in the first half and attempted to come back out for the second half. However, he was unable to play and now we know why.

Here's the news from Rapoport.

It's a tough break for the Cowboys and Williams, who had been playing well until suffering the injury. The former Texas star provided a solid fill-in on the offensive line as the Cowboys have dealt with a rash of injuries this season.

Dallas suffered a brutal loss to Buffalo on Thursday. After the loss, the Cowboys sit at 6-6 on the season and are in danger of missing the playoff.

A crucial game against Philadelphia looms large in Week 16 that could decide the the division.

Williams suffered a knee injury during his final season at Texas that caused him to fall in the draft. Dallas selected him in the second round of the 2018 NFL draft and he's played a significant role in the team's success ever since.
