Stand out rookie for the Dallas Cowboys, Dez Bryant will be out for the rest of the regular season after undergoing successful fibula surgery this morning.
He fractured his ankle in the thrilling overtime victory over the floundering Colts, when he was gang tackled during a kick-off return in the fourth quarter.
Bryant’s young NFL career has been hampered by ankle injuries as he hurt his right one before the regular season even started.
“I ain’t talking to you guys,” Bryant said to reporters after the game.
“This is hard to handle as much as he wants to be with the team, out on the practice field, being a part of these games,” said Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. “He’s going to have to bite that, be mature, be more grown up about the situation he’s in.”
“He certainly made great strides in his rookie year,” interim head coach Jason Garrett said. “Hopefully, he’ll continue to learn when he’s out.”
