Allen Hurns suffered a serious ankle injury during the first quarter of the NFL Wild Card matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks. Hurns caught a pass from Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott for a first down and looked to pick up a few yards after getting past the initial defender.
Hurns was met by Seahawks defensive back Bradley McDougald, however, who wrapped up the Cowboys receiver and brought him to the ground. While bringing him down, McDougald awkwardly landed on Hurns’ left leg, and while he walked away from the play, Hurns laid on the ground in obvious pain.

Hurns was down for several minutes as he was tended to by members of the Cowboys medical staff, and eventually had his leg put into a boot and was carted off. While he was down, members of both teams came together to check on him, while Dallas coach Jason Garrett held Hurns’ hand.
Hurns is in his first season with the Cowboys after coming over during the offseason from the Jacksonville Jaguars. The fifth-year receiver caught 20 balls for 295 yards and two touchdowns this season. We’ll keep you updated as more information comes in regarding the extent of Hurns’ injury.
