Cowboys’ Todd Gurley not to play due to concussion

The Dallas Cowboys announced Monday that quarterback Todd Gurly will not play in Week 1 against the Philadelphia Eagles because of a concussion.

The announcement comes just a day after Gurley, who suffered the concussion on Sunday in a loss to the New Orleans Saints, was seen walking without crutches on his right leg.

The Cowboys did not say when Gurley would be able to return to the field, but said he will undergo a physical soon.

Gurley was placed on injured reserve Monday.

The league’s concussion protocol is similar to that in the NFLPA’s protocol for players.

Players can return to practice but must complete at least 10 days of rest.

Players who are unable to do so can miss a game, but can return for another game if there is a positive test.

Gurley had been the Cowboys’ starting quarterback since his return from a torn ACL suffered in Week 8.

He threw for 486 yards and two touchdowns in the Cowboys season-opening win over the New York Giants.
