Dez Bryant's foot to take six weeks to heal-- Tue Sep 15 10:59 am --
Jerry Jones Cowboys star WR will be out through team's Week 6 bye
In a radio interview, Jerry Jones said Dez Bryant's (Jones fracture in foot) surgery went well, but that the foot will take a full six weeks to heal completely.(Twitter)
FF Today's Take:Don't I know it! I once had the exact same foot fracture (fifth metatarsal) and it's a low-blood-flow area that heals relatively slowly, though the inserted screw aids the process. The Cowboys will likely continue to spread the ball around to TE Jason Witten, WR Terrance Williams, slot receiver Cole Beasley, RB Lance Dunbar -- though we could see some of second-year WR Devon Street and rookie Lucky Whitehead if the team shows a need for a bigger edge target.
Dez Bryant out 4-6 weeks, foot injury-- Sun Sep 13 10:00 pm --
Dallas All-Pro receiver Dez Bryant could be out at least a month after breaking his right foot in the Cowboys' season-opening victory over the New York Giants. Owner Jerry Jones said Bryant would need a pin and be out four to six weeks. (Dallas Morning News)
FF Today's Take:The Cowboys will be without their biggest playmaker for at least a month. Next up on the depth chart is Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley. Tight End Jason Witten may also see increased targets over the next few weeks. If available, Williams will be a hot waiver wire pickup as a potential WR2/3.
