Nick Eatman reports that he recently spoke with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett who mentioned that Dez Bryant will meet with a hand specialist. Eatman adds that he believes Bryant will not be placed on IR.
Richie Whitt of CBS Dallas reports that Cowboys WR Dez Bryant suffered torn ligaments in his finger during Sunday’s win over the Cincinnati Bengals and will subsequently be out for the remainder of the 2012 season.
Following yesterday’s game, Bryant referred to the injury as just a sprained finger, but Whitt adds that it will require surgery and the Cowboys will likely place him on season-ending injured reserve.
This clearly a huge blow to the Cowboys offense who already had a very difficult road to earn a spot in this year’s post season.
