Cowboys’ Allen Hurns appears to sustain severe leg injury
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys receiver Allen Hurns appeared to sustain a severe left leg injury in the first quarter of a wild-card playoff game against Seattle.
Hurns was going down at the end of a 14-yard catch for a first down when his lower left leg appeared to buckle Saturday night. He writhed in pain on the turf as medical personnel rushed out to attend to him.
His leg was immobilized, and he was taken off the field on a cart after being placed on a stretcher, tears coming down his face. Several players from both teams crowded around the stretcher as Hurns was wheeled off.
Hurns held up his left fist as the crowd cheered while the cart was driven off the field.
The Cowboys signed Hurns as a free agent in the offseason after waiving franchise career touchdown catches leader Dez Bryant in a cost-cutting move. With the catch against the Seahawks, the 27-year-old Hurns had 21 catches for 309 yards with two touchdowns.
