On Friday Dallas Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy acknowledged the loss of cornerback Trevon Diggs for the season was a blow.

Diggs suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during Thursday's practice.

"Obviously you feel sick [for] him," McCarthy said Friday. "It's definitely a punch to the gut for our football team, but this is an opportunity for our defensive depth to stand up and continue to move forward."

"This is an example of what we're talking about when we speak on culture, the strength of the locker room," McCarthy said. "It's something that you're going to have to deal with throughout the season. It's part of the adversity to win a championship. The focal point really for us is really on Trevon, the person, because he needs our love and support, but this is part of the NFL. It's definitely unfortunate."

DaRon Bland is expected to move outside from the slot to Diggs' role.

"Very confident in DaRon," McCarthy said. "If you look at his history here, whether it was to start on special teams or the opportunity to play in the nickel, the opportunity to play outside, he's always stepped up and played. He's very, very professional for a young player. This is another opportunity and he'll take the challenge."
