DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys receiver Allen Hurns suffered a gruesome first-quarter injury during Saturday's NFC Wild Card Playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

It was a lower left injury that was sickening and tough to watch at home, and for his teammates and opponents on the field.

"So, when you see a guy like that go down, it hurts," said Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott during the postgame press conference. "Just seeing how nasty that was, it hurts a lot."
