The Dallas Cowboys have yet to rule Dez Bryant out of Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins, but the wide receiver will have more tests this week on his surgically-repaired right foot and his ailing ankle.
When asked if there is a worry if there is another fracture in Bryant’s foot, coach Jason Garrett said, “just evaluating where he is.”
Bryant had surgery Sept. 14 to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot suffered in the season opener. He had a bone graft done at the time of the surgery to help promote healing, which is how the Cowboys dealt with the same fracture to defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence last year. He later had a stem-cell injection for his foot in October.
Earlier in the month Bryant said he was feeling as good as he had felt all season but Garrett said the receiver’s foot and ankle have gotten progressively worse in the last few weeks.
