NFL roundup: Latest league news from Monday, Nov. 1

The Dallas Cowboys received good and bad news on the injury front, and they are awaiting word on another key player.

Rookie cornerback Trevon Diggs should be fine after suffering an ankle injury Sunday, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. The NFL's interception leader was sidelined for the final two plays of the Cowboys' win against the Vikings.

There is a bit more concern with left tackle Tyron Smith and his sprained ankle, per Rapoport. The former Pro Bowler missed the entire second half in Week 8 and will undergo tests Monday to determine how significant his injury is.

Meanwhile, linebacker Jabril Cox is feared to have suffered a torn ACL, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reported.


  • New York Giants receivers Sterling Shepard (quad) and Dante Pettis (shoulder) were ruled out of Monday's game against the Chiefs. Shepard suffered the injury just before halftime. Pettis walked to the locker room shortly after he was injured on a muffed punt in the second quarter and did not return. Rookie WR Kadarius Toney briefly exited in the fourth quarter after his left thumb was stepped on at the end of the play, though he would return before the game was over. Toney told reporters that he couldn't remember why he went to the locker room but said the thumb is fine, as is his injured ankle -- Toney's availability was initially in doubt coming into the game because of the ankle.
