Ismail Leaves Cowboys-Chargers Game

Ismail Leaves Cowboys-Chargers Game

The Dallas Cowboys’ Raghib Ismail sprained his right knee in Sunday’s game, leaving the receiver’s season in question.

Ismail, who missed the last six games of the 2000-2001 season with torn ligaments in his right knee, will be reevaluated today by team doctors. According to the Associated Press, the Cowboys originally described the injury as a sprain.

“I heard a popping sound,” Ismail said after the game. A popping sound can indicate a ligament tear, but coach Dave Campo said the extent of the injury is yet unknown.

After catching a 3-yard pass from Anthony Wright, Ismail rose up awkwardly off his knees. He walked on his own to the locker room and never returned to the field. His injury occurred in the second quarter of the Cowboys 32-21 loss to the San Diego Chargers.

Earlier in the game, Ismail made an 80-yard touchdown catch, grabbing the ball in full stride as he ran past defensive back Rodney Harrison.
