Dallas Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton took a vicious, cheap hit from Jon Bostic, who was rightfully ejected from the game.
In the second half of the Dallas Cowboys game vs. the Washington Football Team, there was a scary moment when Andy Dalton tried running for a first down, but was absolutely destroyed by Washington linebacker Jon Bostic as he was going down, with Bostic leading with his helmet.
Dalton’s head slammed against the turf and he lay motionless on the ground for several minutes. He was able to walk off under his own power, but Bostic was of course ejected from the game after such a dirty, cheap shot.
Andy Dalton injury was a dirty hit that he somehow walked off
With Dak Prescott out for the season and now Dalton going down, Mike McCarthy now must run the offense through seventh-round NFL Draft pick Ben DiNucci. It goes without saying, but that’s the last thing the Cowboys would have wanted to be dealing with.
With things already falling apart offensively, and the team down big on the road to Washington, seeing Dalton suffer his injury was absolutely heartbreaking for Cowboys fans. At the same time, talk about a complete and total cheap shot from Bostic.
The replay of the hit looks even worse, as he literally shoots himself at Dalton, leading head first. Even Bostic’s Washington teammates were in shock that he made such a play, while the Dallas sideline was understandably furious.
Bostic can expect quite the fine to come his way, while the hope for Dallas is that Dalton won’t have to miss significant time. A cart was brought onto the field for him, but fortunately, he was able to walk off despite being in a ton of pain.
