LANDOVER, Md. (KXAN) — Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton left Sunday’s game after a vicious hit by Washington Football Team linebacker Jon Bostic.
Dalton was scrambling away for a short gain in the third quarter when Bostic hit him high in the head area. Dalton remained on the field for several minutes before being helped to the locker room by the Cowboys training staff.
The Cowboys announced Dalton left the game with a concussion. His status for next week is uncertain.
Bostic was ejected from the game for the hit. Ben DiNucci, a rookie out of James Madison, replaced Dalton for the remainder of the third quarter.
Dalton was tabbed to fill in for Dak Prescott after the Cowboys starter sustained a season-ending ankle injury two weeks ago against the New York Giants.
Dallas lost to the Washington Football Team 25-3 to fall out of first place in the division standings.
