A bad season has gotten worse for the Dallas Cowboys.
Already without starting quarterback Dak Prescott due to a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle, backup Andy Dalton was forced out of the Cowboys’ 25-3 loss to the Washington Football Team after taking a dirty hit from linebacker Jon Bostic.
After the game, the team updated his status of him having a concussion and the Cowboys quarterback is currently in concussion protocol but will be able to fly home with the team.
A team representative spoke with NBC Sports PFT and informed reporters that Dalton is in much better shape is in “good spirits.”
Before the injury, Dalton completed 9 of 19 passes for 75 yards. He was sacked three times and lost a fumble on the Cowboys’ first possession, which led to a safety.
If he can’t go next week, third-string rookie Ben DiNucci will be starting against the Eagles.
