Cowboys are concerned about the injury to defensive tackle Trysten Hill

There was another injury for the Cowboys on Sunday.

Obviously the big injury for the Dallas Cowboys in their win over the New York Giants was the compound fracture/dislocation to Dak Prescott’s ankle. This overshadowed almost everything else about the game like the Cowboys now being in first place, but also an injury to another Cowboys player.

Earlier in the game defensive tackle Trysten Hill came up lame after trying to hold up from hitting New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones after he had thrown the ball. It wasn’t apparent right away what happened but it turns out it is a knee injury.

The Cowboys are concerned about the severity of it.

McCarthy also expressed fear for defensive tackle Trysten Hill, calling Hill’s knee injury “serious.” The Cowboys announced Hill has a right knee sprain but will undergo an MRI on Monday to determine the extent.

Hill has come back from a poor rookie season to win a starting spot at defensive tackle and has shown he is capable of being a player in this league. The Cowboys injuries are mounting, and we’ll have to see just how bad Hill’s injury turns out to be.
