Cowboys running back Tony Pollard fractured his left fibula late in the second quarter, ESPN’s Todd Archer reports. The injury will require surgery.

Normal payback is 3-4 months and Pollard is expected to enter free agency in March.

The Cowboys missed the Pro Bowler when he left after catching an 8-yard pass from Dak Prescott with 1:24 left in the first half. 49ers defensive back Jimmie Ward rolled over Pollard’s left ankle while making the tackle.

Pollard was also diagnosed with a sprained ankle, which FOX said would keep the running back out for the second half.

Pollard had an air blast to his lower left leg as he was carried off the sideline into the practice room, and he was on crutches and in a boot after the 19-12 loss against the 49ers.

He had six carries for 22 yards and two catches for 11 yards before leaving.
