IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dez Bryant has been ruled out for the Dallas Cowboys’ game at the New York Giants on Sunday, delaying the All-Pro receiver’s return from a broken right foot at least another week.
Bryant was downgraded from doubtful Saturday, a day after he didn’t travel with the team to New York. He hasn’t played since getting injured in the opener against the Giants.
The Cowboys (2-3) have lost all three games without Bryant and quarterback Tony Romo, who broke his left collarbone a week after Bryant went out. After the game against the Giants (3-3), Romo will miss at least three more games.
Receiver Brice Butler will be available for Dallas after missing a loss to New England with a strained hamstring. The Cowboys traded for Butler after Bryant’s injury.
