The Cowboys got a big home win over the Chiefs on Sunday afternoon, but it came with a few injury concerns for the games to follow.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant hurt his ankle in the second half and said after the game, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, that it was “a little sore and bruised.” Coach Jason Garrett called the injury a sprain, but said the team was waiting to learn more about the severity.

Bryant had six catches for 73 yards in the 28-17 win, which left him second on the team to Terrance Williams in both areas. Williams had nine catches for 141 yards and also hurt his ankle late in the proceedings. He said it was just sore and something he’s been dealing with for a while.

Left tackle Tyron Smith is the third injury concern and Garrett said he suffered a groin injury that kept him out in the latter stages of the game. All three will be closely monitored this week as the Cowboys prepare for a matchup with the Falcons next Sunday.

  1. Butler can step in, but to say better without dez and he’s not a number 1 wr is very questionable. Going off stats you have an argument, but stats don’t show go to’s when you need a 1st or the fact he draws attention.

  2. All you guys dogging out dez aren’t true cowboys fans and probably hopped on the bandwagon last year when zeke and dak exploded on the scene. Dez is arguably the biggest red zone threat in the entire league. He leads the the league in TD’s since coming into the league, and he’s been hurt the last 2 years. He might not rack up 1500 yards a season but he’s still a match up nightmare and his catches mean something usually 3rd down conversions and TD’s. Points win games and no WR is better at putting points on the board for there team than dez. Dez and dak will get those back shoulder and jump ball throws on point and when they do you’ll really be eating crow.
