    The Dallas Cowboys lost receiver and special teams standout Dwayne Harris on Sunday Night Football against the New Orleans Saints.

    Harris was on the receiving end of a nasty hit on the sideline and was down for several minutes with the training staff after he collided with another player on the New Orleans bench, per the broadcast's official Twitter account:

    The third-year pro was having himself quite a night as he recovered a muffed punt early in the contest to give the Cowboys a major advantage. He would later return before halftime according to Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram:

    Last season was Harris' major breakout year with over 200 receiving yards and one touchdown—not an easy feat in the Dallas offense—but he truly made his mark in all aspects of special teams play from coverage to returns.

    The East Carolina product had already racked up over 500 return yards coming into the contest and had scored twice on just eight receptions.
