Football News

What made the Dallas Cowboys' game-winning drive against the New York Giants on Sunday night even more impressive was the fact it was achieved with Dez Bryant on the sidelines.

And 'America's Team' will have to get used to winning games without their star wide receiver after a four-to-six-week timeframe was put on Bryant's return from a broken foot.

Dez update

As you might expect, the news has been met with concern by the Cowboys faithful. But Bryant himself has now taken to social media in the hope of quelling their fears.

Bryant's positive outlook is admirable, but, with surgery on the broken bone scheduled for Tuesday, not even the star himself can be certain just how "soon" he will be returning to the gridiron.

Big blow

Even though Dallas came away from their season-opener with a dramatic late win, the franchise will be crossing their fingers that they won't be without Dez Bryant for too long.

The 26-year-old remains one of the NFL's top receivers and hauled in a league-high 16 touchdowns last campaign. Being without him for a quarter of the season is a big blow early on for Dallas.

Still, even if Bryant can't be out on the field helping the Cowboys, the outspoken star can be counted on to lead the applause from the sidelines:

Dez Bryant caught five passes for 48 yards before he exited the game in the fourth quarter. His absence will see Terrance Williams move up the depth chart to take the position of number one receiver for Dallas' trip to Philadelphia.
