Dez Bryant Injury: Dallas Cowboys wide receiver will miss Eagles game due to broken foot

New, comments

The Cowboys beat the Giants, but they lost one of their best players.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant suffered a broken foot during the team's 27-26 victory over the New York Giants on Sunday evening. According to team owner Jerry Jones, Bryant is expected to miss several weeks of playing time.

This is obviously a big loss for the Cowboys considering Bryant is the team's best receiver and arguably best overall offensive player.

With Bryant expected to be out for a while, it seems safe to say he won't be suiting up when the Cowboys travel to Philadelphia to play the Eagles next week on Sunday, Sept. 20.

Bryant won't be the only significant Cowboys player missing from action. Rookie pass rusher Randy Gregory also suffered an injury on Sunday night and will miss several weeks.

Along with Bryant and Gregory, the Cowboys will still be without defensive end Greg Hardy and linebacker Rolando McClain because they are both serving four-game suspensions.

The fact that the Cowboys will be without several key players against the Eagles obviously works to Philadelphia's advantage.
