Dez Bryant Injury: Updates on Cowboys Star's Foot, Potential Return Date
He would return to the game later in the fourth quarter.
UPDATE: Sunday, Sept. 15
Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News and Fox Sports Southwest confirms Dez Bryant is not on the Cowboys' inactive list for Week 2:
Cole Beasley, Joseph Randle, Ernie Sims, David Arkin, Darrion Weems, Andre Smith and Caesar Rayford inactive for the #Cowboys today in KC.— Jon Machota (@jonmachota) September 15, 2013
UPDATE: Thursday, Sept. 12
ESPN's Todd Archer has the latest on Bryant's participation in Wednesday's practice and his status going forward:
“He just didn’t take every single rep like he normally does,” Garrett said. “That’s just a function of we played Sunday night, he has a little bit of a foot injury and we want to make sure he’s healthy and ready to go this ballgame. No setbacks. Maybe just a little bit more of a limited practice than a typical Wednesday.”
Bryant will practice today, but the team will continue to monitor his work.
UPDATE: Tuesday, Sept. 10
From Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram:
Cowboys got good news on Dez Bryant MRI results, per team official, they came back negative and he should play against Chiefs as expected— Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) September 10, 2013
Bryant may be limited in practice this week as cowboys manage the mild foot sprain. But he should play vs Chiefs— Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) September 10, 2013
ESPN's Ed Werder supports Hill's report:
WR Dez Bryant MRI indicates mild foot sprain. Cowboys expect him to play vs KC but unsure how much he will practice this week with injury— Ed Werder (@Edwerderespn) September 10, 2013
David Helman of DallasCowboys.com later confirmed Hill and Werder's reports:
The MRI Dez Bryant underwent on his foot Monday came back negative.
The Cowboys’ top receiver suffered a mild foot sprain toward the tail end of Sunday’s win against the Giants, prompting the team to check for any serious damage.
Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones confirmed as much Tuesday morning in a radio interview with 105.3 The Fan. Jones said Bryant will likely be limited during practice this week, but he expects the fourth-year wideout to play Sunday against Kansas City.
UPDATE: Monday, Sept. 9
From Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com:
Dez Bryant has sprained left foot. X-rays were negative.— Calvin Watkins (@calvinwatkins) September 9, 2013
Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram had the tweet after Bryant left the field:
They are working on Dez Bryant's foot/ankle on the sideline.— Charean Williams (@NFLCharean) September 9, 2013
Her colleague, Carlos A. Mendez, noted that a gaggle of trainers gathered around the fourth-year pro on the bench shortly after the injury occurred:

ESPN's Tim MacMahon also offered his take on the play:
Bad: Dez Bryant couldn't get to the chains. Worse: He stayed down. They're looking at his left foot/ankle.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) September 9, 2013
Although Bryant would return to the field before the end of the game, per MacMahon's tweet below, the 24-year-old has been bit by the injury bug several times in his career:
Good news: Dez Bryant's injury didn't keep him off field. Bad news: He couldn't come down w/ 2-point conversion. 36-24, Dallas, 1:50 to go.— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) September 9, 2013
In 2010, Bryant broke his fibula and would miss the final few games of his rookie season. Last season, he dealt with a number of different bumps and bruises, but still managed to play in all 16 games. He actually delayed necessary surgery on a broken finger to finish the 2012 season.
Bryant had four catches for 22 yards in Dallas' 36-31 win over New York.
For his career, the former Oklahoma State star has 204 receptions, 2,893 receiving yards and 27 touchdowns. Dallas' No. 1 wideout is expected to have a big year, so hopefully there are no long-lasting effects from what looks to be a minor setback.
