(Reuters) — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott left with an apparent serious leg or ankle injury in the third quarter of Sunday’s game against the visiting New York Giants.
Prescott gained 9 yards on a called quarterback draw and was tackled by New York safety Logan Ryan.
He immediately clutched his right lower leg. After a cast was placed on the leg, Prescott appeared to be crying as he was carted off the field at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Dallas led 24-23 at the time of the injury. Veteran Andy Dalton replaced Prescott.
Prescott completed 14 of 21 passes for 166 yards with one interception. He also caught an 11-yard touchdown pass.
The 27-year-old Prescott entered the game leading the NFL in completions (137), attempts (201) and passing yards (1,690).
