Injuries are an unfortunate reality that teams deal with throughout preseason camp and preseason games. And unfortunately for the Dallas Cowboys, it looks like one of their promising young players will now be out for the season after suffering a knee injury.
According to a report from Dallas Cowboys beat writer Clarence Hill Jr., Cowboys rookie linebacker DaMarvion Overshown suffered an ACL injury that will keep him out for the remainder of the season.
“Sources confirm a torn Acl for Cowboys rookie linebacker DaMarvion Overshown. The promising third round pick from Texas is out for the season. Big blow for Overshown and the Cowboys who are thin at linebacker,” Hill wrote on Twitter.

As Hill noted, the Dallas Cowboys do not have a lot of depth at linebacker this season, so this loss is particularly brutal for the team. As a result, people had plenty to say about it on social media.
Absolutely gutted for Overshown. He was going to have a great rookie year 😔 https://t.co/kXH2J1y0ml

This is brutal. Overshown was really playing well, and looked like a guy who could be a key piece for Dallas. https://t.co/076aFKSPsh

Overshown was selected in the third round in the 2023 NFL Draft and was emerging as a real asset for the Cowboys heading into his rookie season. But unfortunately for him, he will now have to wait another year before making his regular season debut with the team.
