Dez Bryant Injury: Cowboys wide receiver likely to miss the second Eagles game

New, comments

Bad news for Dallas.

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys will be without star wide receiver when the team plays the Philadelphia Eagles today on Sunday, Sept. 20. The Cowboys also might be without Bryant when the two teams play again later this season. According to a report from NFL Media's Ian Rapoport, Bryant could miss more time than originally expected.

"Bryant, who broke a small bone in his foot late during the opening win over the Giants, actually needed a bone graft during the surgery that took place last Monday, according to sources informed of his procedure. So instead of a four-to-six week recovery as the team had hoped, Bryant faces a 10-12 week timeframe."

The Eagles next play the Cowboys in Dallas on on Sunday, Nov. 8. That date is only seven weeks from today, so one would figure Bryant won't be back in time for that game.

Dallas losing one of their best players for an extended period of time obviously bodes well for Philadelphia.
