Dallas Cowboys Dodge Major Injury Bullets in Week 1

Dez Bryant

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

As Dez Bryant laid on the turf late in the fourth quarter Sunday night, Dallas Cowboys‘ fans surely realized that the fate their season was laying right along with the star wide receiver. Bryant’s ankle got caught up while he was being tackled and it twisted in fairly gruesome fashion. The talented wide out limped to the sidelines and proceed to vent his frustrations on the Gatorade table.

I didn’t blame him a bit for his outburst, because after all the hard work he’s put in to get his head on straight, it looked like an ankle injury could significantly alter his 2013 campaign. Bryant ultimately returned a few plays later and appears to be fine, but it was a scare Cowboys’ fans could have done without.

In other Cowboys’ injury news, it appears the team has dodged another bullet, after x-rays revealed no structural damage to Tony Romo‘s ribs following the massive shot he took in the first half. You can call Romo a lot of things, but wimp is not one of them. Dude is straight up tough and he proved it again on Sunday night by returning to the game in obvious pain.

So after a lot of worrying by Cowboys’ fans, it appears everything is okay heading forward. Bryant and Romo are no doubt sore, but they’ll be out there next weekend trying their best to put Dallas back in the playoffs for the first time since 2009.
