FRISCO, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have released Allen Hurns, cutting ties with their first notable free agent signing at receiver after dumping Dez Bryant a year ago.

Hurns sustained a gruesome leg injury while being tackled in a wild-card win over Seattle last season, ending up with a broken left ankle that required surgery at a hospital the night of the game. The 27-year-old participated in offseason practices and said he was close to a complete recovery.

Production was spotty for Hurns early in his only season with the Cowboys, and his role was reduced after a midseason trade for Amari Cooper. Hurns finished with career lows of 20 catches for 295 yards with two touchdowns.

Originally signed as an undrafted free agent by Jacksonville in 2014, Hurns spent four years with the Jaguars. His best season came a year later when he had 1,031 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns.

To fill Hurns’ spot, the Cowboys signed quarterback Taryn Christion of South Dakota State. Christion will be the fourth QB in training camp, which starts Saturday in Oxnard, California.
