Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant had surgery on his foot and ankle in New York today, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.
Bryant was limited to nine games in 2015 after suffering a broken foot in the season opener against the New York Giants and caught a career-worst 31 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns. When it was clear he was still hobbled by his initial injury, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett held him out of the final two games.
It also didn’t help that Dallas was without star quarterback Tony Romo for all but four games after Romo fractured his left collarbone twice. As a result, the Cowboys went 4-12 after entering the campaign as favorites to win the NFC East.
The good news is that Bryant has had his surgery as soon as possible and should be ready for training camp in the summer, so be sure to stay tuned to Campus Sports for further updates on his recovery!
