Dez Bryant not expected to miss off-season activities after surgery

Monday January 4th, 2016

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is expected to be ready for off-season activities after undergoing surgery, owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Sunday. 

Bryant was placed on injured reserve last week after sustaining knee and ankle injuries during the season. He will undergo surgery to repair his injured foot and ankle. Jones said Bryant is not expected to miss any organized team activities or training camp.

Bryant played in only nine games for Dallas this season after playing in 16 in each of the last three. Bryant broke a bone in his foot during Week 1, then returned six weeks later only to hurt his ankle.
