Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns suffered a gruesome left ankle injury in the team's 24–22 NFC Wild Card win over the Seahawks on Saturday. 

USA Today's Jori Epstein reported owner Jerry Jones said Hurns was most likely in surgery after the game and that Hurns dislocated his ankle and fractured his knee.

Hurns was injured with 7:28 remaining in the first quarter. Medical staff came out to attend Hurns as teammates gathered around to show support. Dallas head coach Jason Garrett came out to hold Hurns's hand.

Medical staff placed an inflatable boot over Hurns's left ankle and foot, and the sellout crowd cheered as Hurns was carted off. Hurns gave a thumbs up to the crowd as he was taken off the field. He did not return. 

The 27-year-old receiver had 20 receptions for 295 yards and two touchdowns this season. Hurns signed with the Cowboys in March after playing for the Jaguars since 2014.
