The Dallas Cowboys were able to fight off the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday and hang on for a 38-35 win in overtime. But, it came with a price. Their up-and-coming stud WR Dez Bryant went down with a cracked ankle and will miss the rest of the year.
According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, he’ll have surgery on Monday. And just to reinforce what I just said, I’m going to copy and paste the exact tweet where he says so.
“Filed 2 ESPNDallas – Dez Bryant to have surgery Monday on fractured right ankle,” Archer tweets, just like I said he did.
Bryant should be able to make a full recovery for next season. He’s probably better off that he was a break and not a shredding of tendons. Breaks heal a lot better.
As for his fantasy outlook for the rest of 2010, his production could suffer while the injury heals.
