Dallas Cowboys Pro Bowl running back Tony Pollard suffered a fractured left fibula during the Cowboys loss to the San Francisco 49ers during the Divisional Playoff game on Sunday and will need surgery, according to ESPN.

Pollard suffered the injury with 1:24 left in the first half hen he was rolled up after an 8-yard reception and needed assistance as he went to the sidelines. Pollard, who was ruled out for the remainder of the game, was wearing an Aircast on his left leg as he was carted to the X-ray room inside Levi’s Stadium.

Dallas turned to Ezekiel Elliot and rookie Malik Davis with Pollard out.

“That hurt,” Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott said. “Just a guy that brings so much to our offense, brings so much to our team. His energy. His energy on the sideline, in the huddle, the way he gets guys going. He’s a special teammate, special player and obviously that one hurt. It hurt us. Wasn’t able to create as many explosive plays as we planned, and I’m sure he would’ve been a big part of some of those had he not gotten hurt.”

Pollard is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
