Dez Bryant Could Be Out for the Season

Bryant suffers finger injury in Bengals game



    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has torn ligaments in his finger and will have season-ending surgery, according to talk show host Richie Whitt.

    Head coach Jason Garrett said Monday afternoon that there has been no definitive decision made regarding Bryant's injury and that we'll just have to wait and see what the doctor's say. For now, Bryant has not been placed on injured reserve.

    NBC 5's David Watkins, who is at Valley Ranch, said the team is hopeful that Bryant can play through the injury and that he is seeing a hand specialist today.  

    Bryant had four catches for 50 yards including one touchdown in the game against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday. 

    Bryant has been having his best season so far in the NFL, where he's snagged 75 balls for 1,028 yards for an average of 13.7 yards per catch. He has nine touchdowns so far this year, tying his total for last year.
