Dez Bryant sprained his left foot on Sunday night

Late in Sunday night’s victory over the Cowboys, wide receiver Dez Bryant caught a third-down pass short of the markers and was wrestled down almost immediately by Giants safety Ryan Mundy to force a punt.

After the play, Bryant stayed down with what looked like a left foot injury and looked upset when cameras caught him on the sideline a short time later. Bryant was back on the field for the two-point conversion try after Brandon Carr iced the game with an interception return for a touchdown, but the foot injury didn’t just go away.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that Bryant has a sprained foot. Watkins adds that x-rays were negative, which is good news. An MRI would almost certainly be needed to rule out any structural injuries that could keep Bryant from being on the field in the coming weeks, so we’ll keep an eye out for more information.

Bryant only had four catches for 22 yards on Sunday night, but the attention paid to him in the form of almost constant double-teams opened up the field for Miles Austin and Jason Witten. Losing Bryant for any extended period of time would take that away from the Cowboys offense as well as Bryant’s own ability to make plays in the passing game.

Which is a roundabout way of saying that it wouldn’t be a very good thing at all.

    When is losing a player of Bryant’s abilities a GOOD thing for ANY team? You guys are really the Masters of the Obvious.

    Why was he having a fit like a little girl on the sideline?

    Dez got the Calvin Johnson treatment, double coverage ALL NIGHT. Sure opened things up for Witten, he was 1 TD short of matching his 2012 total. Dez came back on the field after getting hurt so that was good to see.

    It can’t be to bad. He was back out there later on a 2pt conversion.

    So that’s why the CowBabies only won by 5 with the Giants giving them 6 turnovers. Should have been a beat down.

    Moss says Bryant is disrespecting injuries

    Chiefs will easily beat the Cowboys next week.

    Why are Steeler fans even commenting about anything today?

    You should go in hiding after the smack down you took from the Titans! The Titans!

    Dez got the same treatment Andre Johnson has gotten his entire career without a legit #2 option. When he can post 8-10 grabs, 100+ yards and a score consistently- then it’s deserved.
    Not knocking Dez’s ability or potential but he has always had the physical tools to do what he started to do at the end of last year (last 4-6 games was beast mode).
    He still comes off as immature & a bit of a loose cannon. Throwing a tantrum on the sidelines because he thought he was injured….that is the core of what keeps him from being at CJ’s or AJ’s level.

    There goes his painting career.

  19. nananatman says: Sep 9, 2013 4:57 PM

    Really opened the field for Witten and Austin to grab nowhere near 100 yards and barely pull out a w.

    Bryant+his mom+Witten+Austin<Victor Cruz

    Rough thing getting owned by Aaron Ross.

    Dez Bryant cries more than Clay Matthews, I suppose he could always follow his playing career with a gig in acting.

    Wow how tough, played with a sprained ankle.

    To a hockey player, that’s like having a piece of popcorn stuck between your teeth.

  23. blahblahblah1313 says: Sep 9, 2013 9:16 PM

    For a hocey player to get popcorn between his teeth he would have to have teeth…

    “Really opened the field for Witten and Austin to grab nowhere near 100 yards and barely pull out a w.”

    Better than 3 TD catches and barely pulling out a loss.
