Cowboys RB Pollard Completes Successful Surgery On Leg Injury

Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard underwent successful surgery on Tuesday to repair a high ankle sprain that he suffered in a 19-12 loss against the 49ers in Sunday's NFC Championship game, via ESPN's Todd Archer. 

Pollard is also nursing a broken left fibula which he suffered alongside his ankle injury that is to heal on its own over time. 

The 25-year-old rusher went down late in the second quarter after completing a pass from quarterback Dak Prescott and did not return after being carted to the locker room in the aftermath of his unfortunate injury. 

Pollard, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, should garner attention from multiple teams upon his recovery due to his productive 2022-23 campaign, which awarded him with his first Pro Bowl selection of his career. He led the Cowboys two-man rushing attack with 193 carries for 1,007 yards, and 12 touchdowns (9 rushing, and 3 receiving). 

The Cowboys also have the option to franchise tag Pollard if a deal cannot be made by the two parties. 

Pollards timetable for a full recovery is expected to take at least three months, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport
