Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant could miss the
remainder of the season due to an injured finger that may require surgery,
reports Nick Eatman of DallasCowboys.com.
WR Dez Bryant could be out for the rest of the season. Pending the results of a hand specialist, but his finger injury could require surgery

Tests have shown that Bryant is dealing with a fractured
left index finger which will continue to be evaluated. For his part, Bryant has
said he wants to play through the injury, which could be an option for the
Cowboys depending on the severity.
It’s unknown at this point during which play Bryant injured
his finger, but it took place before his 27-yard touchdown reception in the
fourth quarter of Sunday’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Following the game
Bryant told reporters that he thought the injury was just a sprained finger.
Losing Bryant would deal a significant blow to the Cowboys’
playoff chances considering he’s developed into one of quarterback Tony Romo’s
top targets. On the season the wide receiver has caught 75 passes for 1,028
yards and nine touchdowns.
