It hasn't been a great week for Dez Bryant, and it might just have gotten a bit worse.
The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver suffered a broken metatarsal in his foot during the Cowboys come-from-behind win against the New York Giants on Sunday.
Bryant's recovery time went from an initial estimate of four-to-six weeks by the Cowboys, to two-to-three-months spent on the sidelines following the reveal that his surgery was brought forward after the injury was deemed worse than first feared.

That isn't the bad news for Bryant, the Cowboys, and the team's fans, however. Instead, the bad news comes from Atlanta Falcons wideout Roddy White, who made a worrying prediction for Bryant's future.
Out for the Season?
Appearing on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio yesterday, via ProFootballTalk, White revealed that he thinks the Dallas receiver won't see the field again in 2015.
White revealed that Bryant basically suffered the very same injury that Falcons star Julio Jones suffered, an injury that forced Jones out for the season.
“Me and Julio [Jones] were talking about the whole situation,” White said.
“When [Jones] heard that [Bryant] broke his foot he was like, ‘He’s got the same injury I got.’ And, you know, we had to shut [Julio] down for the whole entire year. So I just don’t see him making it back this year.”
Now, White's comments don't have the greatest of scientific backing but he still makes a very pertinent point. Bryant's injury is a pretty serious one, and if the Cowboys do get him back out onto the football field quickly, it could be a bad decision.
