Cowboys receiver Hurns suffers ugly leg injury

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns was stretchered off the field after suffering a gruesome left leg injury in the first quarter of an National Football League playoff game against Seattle on Saturday.

Hurns, 27, caught a 14-yard pass and was tackled by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald. McDougald fell on the Dallas receiver, whose leg bent awkwardly, leaving his foot cocked at an unnatural angle as he lay face down on the field. Cowboys teammates and Seahawks rivals watched as he remained on the field for several minutes. Medical personnel put an air cast on his leg and a cart was called out to remove him, with players from both teams talking to him before his exit. Dallas coach Jason Garrett held Hurns’s hand as he was tended to on the field and the player raised his fist to salute cheering fans as he was driven away. “Obviously not a good situation for Allen. It’s a serious injury that he has,” Garrett told reporters after the Cowboys’ 24-22 victory. “Allen’s in good hands. He’s going to come back. He’s going to play a lot of football for us in the future.”
