Cowboys rookie receiver Dez Bryant is going to be out four to six weeks with a high right ankle sprain.
Bryant injured his ankle near the end of practice Friday when he
became entangled with cornerback Orlando Scandrick while trying to
catch a pass that was thrown behind him.
The team announced a couple of hours later, after Bryant had
been evaluated, that the first-round pick would be out for a while.
Bryant didn't immediately get up after the play. When he finally
did gingerly get to his feet while taking his helmet off, he took
only a step before falling back to the turf. The first-round draft
pick was reaching for his ankle and grimacing in obvious pain. Two
trainers who checked on him then helped him off the field.
