The oft-electrifying rookie season for Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has come to an abrupt end.
That according to Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who said Bryant is out for the rest of the season with a fractured right ankle.
Bryant suffered the injury while returning a kickoff during the fourth quarter of the Cowboys' 38-35 overtime win over Indy on Sunday. Indianapolis' Kavell Conner held onto Bryant's leg while tackling him, and the Cowboys immediately took Bryant to the locker room.
"That sets us back," Jones said. "That sets us back. I really feel bad for him, but it really sets us back. The good news is we've got some depth there. That'll give (Kevin) Ogletree and guys like that a little more play time."
Roy Williams will now see consistent snaps as the Cowboys #2 WR behind Miles Austin. The Cowboys have excellent matchups for the fantasy playoffs with Washington and Arizona in weeks 15 and 16.
