Bryant had surgery on Monday, the same day that ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported that Bryant's recovery could take as long as eight weeks.
And ESPN's Adam Schefter added: "ESPN's Dr. Mark Adickes said [four to six] weeks was an aggressive time frame, and a more likely time frame for Dez Bryant's recovery is [eight to twelve] weeks."
As the story said, everyone heals differently. But past cases of similar injuries have taken up to 8, even 12 weeks to heal for some athletes. Bryant tweeted not to believe the craziness and he would personally keep everyone updated. But as we all know by now, athletes tend to think they will return sooner-than-later.
