Cowboys WR Bryant to have surgery Tuesday


The Sports Xchange

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed on Monday that wide receiver Dez Bryant suffered a broken bone in his foot and will have surgery on Tuesday.

Garrett also confirmed the original prognosis that Bryant is expected to be sidelined four to six weeks.

Bryant finished Sunday’s game with five receptions for 48 yards, but was not on the field for the Cowboys’ game winning drive in the closing moments.

Bryant broke his foot during the third quarter of his first game since signing five-year, $70 million contract in July.

He had left the game in the first half to be treated for dehydration.

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan said replacing Bryant will be a week-to-week adjustment based on the opponent.

Devin Street, a second-year player from Pitt, could start and got up to speed during offseason workouts Bryant skipped during a contract dispute.
