Cowboys' Bryant out for Giants, delaying return another week

IRVING, Texas (AP) Dez Bryant has been ruled out for the Dallas Cowboys' game at the New York Giants on Sunday, delaying the All-Pro receiver's return from a broken right foot at least another week.

Bryant was downgraded from doubtful Saturday, a day after he didn't travel with the team to New York. He hasn't played since getting injured in the opener against the Giants.

The Cowboys (2-3) have lost all three games without Bryant and quarterback Tony Romo, who broke his left collarbone a week after Bryant went out. After the game against the Giants (3-3), Romo will miss at least three more games.

Receiver Brice Butler will be available for Dallas after missing a loss to New England with a strained hamstring. The Cowboys traded for Butler after Bryant's injury.
