Former Nebraska linebacker Luke Gifford injured, carted off field in Dallas Cowboys preseason game

Former Nebraska linebacker Luke Gifford injured his left leg and left Levi's Stadium on a cart during the Dallas Cowboys' preseason game Saturday evening against the San Francisco 49ers.

Not long after intercepting 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens, Gifford suffered the injury. He couldn't put any pressure on his leg, was helped off the field and was then carted to the locker room.

Gifford spent 2015-2018 with the Huskers and signed with Dallas as an undrafted free agent in April.

Gifford dislocated his finger in practice earlier in the week but did not miss a practice. He had been having an excellent training camp with the Cowboys.
