Report: Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (foot) did not practice Wednesday, unlikely to play Sunday
Wednesday October 21st, 2015

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will likely miss Sunday’s game against the New York Giants with a lingering foot injury, reports NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

Bryant, 26, hasn’t played since sustaining a broken right foot during the Cowboys’ season opener against the Giants on Sept. 13. The star wideout underwent bone graft surgery on Sept. 14, and was originally expected to miss 10 to 12 weeks.

According to Rapoport’s report, Bryant sat out of practice on Wednesday with the injury, signaling that he will not be ready to play on Sunday, as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones had suggested he would be on Tuesday on a Dallas radio station.

After spending much of the off-season angling for a new contract, Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million extension with Dallas in July. A Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro selection last season, Bryant had not missed a game since 2012 before sustaining this foot injury.

The Cowboys, who enter Week 7 after a bye, have lost three games in a row since beginning the season 2–0.

They will travel to New Jersey to play the Giants (3–3) on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium.
