Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant underwent successful surgery Monday morning, less than 24 hours after fracturing his right fibula against Indianapolis, according to two sources.
Bryant had a plate inserted into his leg to stabilize the bone, and the Cowboys will put the rookie wide receiver on injured reserve, ending his season. Bryant suffered the injury in the fourth quarter of the 38-35 overtime win on a kickoff return in which linebacker Kavell Conner landed on the ankle while making the tackle.
Bryant's injury was not the only one suffered by the Cowboys against Indianapolis. Tight end Jason Witten suffered a high left ankle sprain in the fourth quarter but managed to return and caught a 2-yard touchdown pass.
Witten said after the game he would be OK, and he has missed only one game in his career, which came as a rookie in 2003.
Be sure to keep an eye on Witten and his status. As the article pointed out, he returned to the game but high ankle sprains can be hampering...
