Dallas Cowboys running back Lance Dunbar had the biggest day of his professional career on Thanksgiving Day as he helped to lead a second half charge for the Cowboys to take down the Oakland Raiders, but his season also came to an end on the same day.

Dunbar suffered ligament damage in his left knee during the game that was set to require surgery.

The recovery time for Dunbar will take three months, which effectively ends his season, but there was no official confirmation to this point.

However, Dunbar confirmed on Saturday that he will be out for the remainder of the year.

From Rainer Sabin of the Dallas Morning News:

It is an unfortunate end to Dunbar’s season, but he goes out after making a big impact.

Entering next season, Dunbar can expect to be a bigger part of the Cowboys offense as part of a one-two punch with starting running back DeMarco Murray.
