Cowboys' Bryant out vs Bills, injury-filled year may be over

IRVING, Texas (AP) Dallas receiver Dez Bryant will miss the Cowboys' game Sunday against Buffalo, raising doubt about whether he will play again during an injury-marred season now that the team is out of playoff contention.

The 2014 All-Pro and cornerback Morris Claiborne didn't make the trip to Buffalo on Saturday.

Bryant, who signed a five-year, $70 million deal before training camp, missed five games after breaking his right foot in the opener. He was listed as doubtful because of the surgically repaired foot, but has also battled knee and ankle injuries.

The sixth-year player has career lows with 31 catches for 401 yards and three touchdowns in nine games.

Claiborne will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury after earlier missing two games.
