Dallas Cowboys fans offered prayers and support for a star defender whose career is in jeopardy after suffering a season-ending injury. Leighton Vander Esch suffered a painful neck injury in Week 5 against the San Francisco 49ers.
Speaking on 105.3 The Fan, owner and general manager Jerry Jones confirmed Leighton Vander Esch’s season is over because of a neck injury. Jones was not sure how it will impact Vander Esch’s ability to play again in the future.

The Cowboys 2018 first-round pick has been a staple of the defense. He earned second-team All-Pro honors in his rookie season. Vander Esch has been essential in one of the league’s premier defenses.
Now, the 27-year-old might not play again. Hopefully, he can heal this offseason. Whether Vander Esch plays again or not, neck pain is not something I’d wish on anyone.
