Dallas Cowboys RB Lance Dunbar to have surgery for torn ACL
Friday October 9th, 2015

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett confirmed that running back Lance Dunbar will undergo knee surgery on Friday.

Dunbar was carted off of the field during the second half of Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints with an injury to his left knee.

An MRI on Monday revealed that Dunbar had sustained a torn ACL, ending his season after just four games.

Used in tandem with Joseph Randle out of the backfield, Dunbar rushed for 67 yards on five attempts this season and caught 21 passes for 215 yards, second-most on the team.

Dallas will take on the New England Patriots on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET.
