Dez Bryant Could Miss Contest Against Vikings
[picappgallerysingle id="9706850"]Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been injury-plagued since he first suffered a high ankle sprain during training camp at the end of July. Bryant missed the entire preseason, but has been a valuable contributor to the Dallas offense through four games. However, the first-round draft pick might miss Sunday’s contest at Minnesota after aggravating that ankle on a punt return in Dallas’ loss to Tennessee. Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Friday that this year’s 24th overall pick could possibly sit out due to that prolonged injury. “It’s been on and off,” said Phillips. “Those high ankle sprains tend to last for a while and sometimes don’t get completely well.” Bryant’s presence has made receivers Miles Austin and Roy Williams even more valuable thus far this season, so his absence could alter the Cowboys’ offensive game plan against the Vikings.
