Dez Bryant breaks bone in foot, likely to have surgery


The Cowboys rallied for an improbable win over the Giants late Sunday night, but the team lost star wide receiver Dez Bryant to a broken bone in his foot in the fourth quarter.

“We want to be careful about making the entire judgment on it but Dez did break a bone,” Cowyboys coach Jason Garrett said in his postgame press conference. “We anticipate him having surgery. The initial diagnosis is he’ll be out 4-6 weeks.”

That 4-6 week target range is also what Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters after the game, and Bryant tweeted that he’ll “be back soon.”

The injury didn’t stop Bryant from leaving the locker room in compression shorts to celebrate with and greet teammates. The video in this tweet contains adult language.

Bryant caught five passes for 48 yards in the Cowboys’ 27-26 win. The Cowboys play at Philadelphia next week.
