Over the last five games, the Dallas Cowboys are sporting a 4-1 record. Much of the credit is due to Dez Bryant, who has come into his own and racked up 525 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns during that span. And with the NFC East and a spot for the Wild Card well within reach with only three games left, the 'Boys are going to need Dez more than ever. But, it seems that a finger injury could keep Bryant off the field for the remainder of the season.
Following the Cowboys' 20-19 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, Bryant was seen by the Dallas Morning News' David Moore wearing a splint. Bryant responded to questions about his injury, simply stating, "I sprained it. Taped it up, wrapped it up a little bit and just got back out there.'' According to Nick Eatman of the TrueBlue Fan Club, Bryant will be seeing a hand specialist who will determine the severity of the damage sustained to his left index finger.
When Eatman asked Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett about the chances Bryant will be placed on injured reserve, he responded with "50-50."
