NFL injury notebook: Cowboys QB Prescott suffers ugly injury
Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott underwent right ankle surgery Sunday night after suffering a compound fracture and dislocation in his team's 37:34 home win over the New York Giants. He'll miss the rest of the season.
Prescott sustained the injury in the third quarter after winning 9 yards in a so-called quarterback tie and being attacked by security Logan Ryan. He immediately grabbed his right lower leg. After a cast was placed on his leg, Prescott appeared to be crying as he was carted off the field at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Among the people who approached Prescott while he was being coached on the lawn was the New York Giants offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, the former trainer of the Cowboys.
The 27-year-old Prescott entered the game and led the NFL in completions (137), attempts (201) and overtakes (1,690). After the injury, veteran Andy Dalton replaced Prescott and led the Cowboys on the game-winning ride that ended with an accessible field goal.
- Kansas City security guard Kelechi Osemele left the field on a cart in the first quarter of the Chiefs' home defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders, and coach Andy Reid said the 31-year-old had torn tendons in both knees.
He was replaced by Mike Remmers, a veteran who made 14 starts for the New York Giants last season.
The Chiefs signed a 1-year contract with Osemele in the off-season. He started all five games this season and has made 101 career starts in nine seasons with the Baltimore Ravens, the then Oakland Raiders, the New York Jets and Kansas City.
In a two-time Pro Bowl selection in his first season in Kansas City, Osemele was injured and not hit while blocking a Patrick Mahomes fight.
The Chiefs also lost receiver Sammy Watkins to a hamstring injury in the second quarter. Watkins had two catches for 24 yards and a score.
- Arizona Cardinals linebacker Chandler Jones suffered a bicep injury against the Jets in New York and manager Kliff Kingsbury said the team fear the injury will end the season.
Jones has a sack this season after hitting a career high of 19 last season. He has 97 sacks in over eight seasons, the most in the NFL since New England drafted him in the 2012 first round.
- Washington quarterback Kyle Allen, replacing Dwayne Haskins, suffered an arm injury late in the first half of his team's 30:10 home loss to the Los Angeles Rams and never returned. Allen's exit meant Alex Smith was playing in a game for the first time since he sustained a compound fracture of his right tibia and fibula during a game in November 2018.
Allen, who shot a hard shot from Ram's cornerback Jalen Ramsey as he tried to get out of hand, was cleared for return in the second half, Washington announced. But the club stayed with Smith the rest of the way. Washington coach Ron Rivera said Allen will face hosts Giants next Sunday when he's healthy.
--Cincinnati Bengals Defensive Tackle D.J. The reader sustained a left leg injury during his club's 27-3 loss to hosts Baltimore Ravens. Multiple outlets reported the injury was due to Reader's quad (although the Bengals announced a knee injury shortly after his third drop out). Bengal coach Zac Taylor said after the competition that he had no updates to offer.
Long-time Cincinnati Wideout A.J. Green sustained a hamstring injury while competing. The 10 year old veteran had no catch and was targeted once before leaving.
- In the game between hosts Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles, three offensive offensive players couldn't finish the game as the Eagles lost Lane Johnson to an ankle injury, the Steelers lost security guard David DeCastro to an abdominal injury and Maurkice Pouncey injured his foot. Steeler's receiver Diontae Johnson was also out and sustained a back injury on a punt return.
After the game, Steelers manager Mike Tomlin said Johnson might be available next week while unsure of DeCastro and Pouncey.
- The giant's linebacker, Lorenzo Carter, injured his Achilles tendon in less than four minutes while playing a touchless game. He was carted off the field and did not return, although no additional information about his injury was provided.
