According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Cowboys beat the Colts, but they have lost Dez Bryant for what is probably the remainder of the season.

Bryant was hurt on a kick return in the fourth quarter and never returned. He was on the ground clearly in a lot of pain, and despite the Cowboys getting an impressive win on the road, this loss doesn't help their chances of winning down the stretch.

Bryant has been spectacular for the Cowboys all season, both in special teams and making big plays in the offense. Despite Roy Williams claiming he has been the most consistent Cowboys wide receiver, Bryant seemingly took over Williams' starting job and has played very well helping the Cowboys to a 3-1 record under interim head coach Jason Garrett.

The Cowboys made no secret that they wanted to get the ball in to the hands of the rookie as much as possible, letting him return both punts and kicks, despite being a starting wide out. Hopefully for Cowboys fans he is able to return next year and be just as explosive.
