Dez Bryant Will Undergo Foot, Ankle Surgeries

Dec 30, 2015 12:28 PM

Dez Bryant has been placed on injured reserve and will undergo surgery on his foot and ankle.

Bryant was limited to just nine games this season after breaking his right foot in the season opener.

At the time of the surgery Bryant had a bone graft to help the healing process, which is standard in how the team deals with foot surgeries.

Bryant signed a five-year, $70 million contract with $45 million guaranteed on July 15 but suffered a hamstring strain early in training camp.

Cowboys Don't Plan On Making Major Changes In Offseason

Dec 29, 2015 1:03 PM

The Dallas Cowboys don't plan on making any major changes to their coaching staff or players despite a 4-11 record heading into Week 17.

"The bottom line is that I can make you a strong case where you should line them up and go again with your hand," Jerry Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas. "But under any circumstances, you have to do what you have to do.

"And so just change for change sake? No, you're not going to have that because I believe that we're closer than this record indicates."

Jones still expects offseason adjustments via the draft and free agency and possible tweaks to the coaching staff -- but nothing different from the norm.

"We're in relatively good shape under the salary cap, and we ought to look at that and change things," Jones said. "Now don't say that that's the highlight of the day -- 'Things are changing' -- because they were going to change anyway. There's at least 20 percent of this roster that changes every year and maybe higher, and so there were going to be those kinds of changes. There's changes on coaching staffs that happen."

Brandon Weeden Happy Jerry Jones Will Be Watching Playoffs From Couch

Dec 29, 2015 12:44 PM

Brandon Weeden is one win away from reaching the playoffs with the Houston Texans while his former team, the Dallas Cowboys, have long been eliminated.

Weeden was Tony Romo's backup to start the season and was called "limited" by Jerry Jones.

During his regular appearance on Oklahoma City radio station 107.7, Weeden was asked if it's "extra satisfying" that he's on a team trying to lock down a postseason berth while the Cowboys turned into a "dumpster fire"?

"I mean, yeah. Absolutely," Weeden said. "We get to play extra football and he'll be watching on his couch. That's what it's all about. We're playing for something, and this is a fun time of the year."

Cowboys Won't Shut Down Dez Bryant

Dec 15, 2015 12:11 PM

Despite a 4-9 record, the Dallas Cowboys have no plans to shut down Dez Bryant for the rest of the season.

"We'll go balls out with Dez," owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas.

Bryant missed five games earlier this season with a broken foot.

Jones puts Bryant's lack of success this season on missing the offseason program with a contract dispute and missing half of the training camp practices and the four preseason games with a hamstring injury.

Bryant has caught 27 passes for 351 yards and two touchdowns.
