Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Allen Hurns was carted off the field after sustaining a gruesome left ankle injury in the first quarter of Saturday's playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Hurns' foot was caught underneath him as he was tackled by Seahawks safety Bradley McDougald at the end of a 14-yard catch. The foot was wrenched unnaturally to the outside in an apparent dislocation or break.

Hurns was down on the field for several minutes, with seven or eight trainers tending to him. Tears came down his face as he was loaded onto the cart, and players from both teams offered their support as he was taken off the field.

The 27-year-old finished the regular season with 20 catches for 295 yards and two touchdowns after joining Dallas on a two-year, $12 million deal.

The Cowboys' receiving corps was already hobbled, with Cole Beasley leaving briefly in the first quarter with an ankle injury. Beasley soon returned, but was seen limping heavily on the ankle.
