Week 1 took about 36 months off life of each and every Dallas Cowboys fan while they committed three critical turnovers that should have and almost lost them the overall game against the New York Giants. Now the group of followers must sweat out the next month roughly with the team’s greatest weapon, Dez Bryant, who suffered a broken bone in his foot in the fourth quarter on Sunday night.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters soon after the game that Bryant’s injury will need surgery and he’ll miss 4-6 weeks. This adter he missed the whole preseason with a nagging hamstring injury.
While the loss of Bryant will undoubtedly affect the Cowboys’ offense, Tony Romo and crew proved they can win without No. 88 having an incredible touchdown drive down by six with under 2 minutes left in the game and no timeouts to get their Week 1 win. Obviously, it likely could have been easier with Bryant on the field, but a win is a win, no matter how it happens.
If Dez were a frog how would he feel right now? Very unhoppy.
Foot injury for a reciever? Season long issues. Compensate for it, and there goes your hammy, progressing right up through your low back. His bone might heal, but he won’t be 100% the whole year.
