Still dealing with tragedy, the Dallas Cowboys are now forced to deal with another significant injury.  Wide receiver Dez Bryant could miss the rest of the season with a finger injury.  Bryant is meeting with a specialist Monday afternoon, and Jason Garrett says the team still doesn't know the severity of the injury.  If surgery is required, Bryant could be out for the remainder of the season.

The loss of Bryant would be a major blow to the Cowboys playoff chances, as they close the season with the Steelers, Saints and Redskins.  Bryant caught a key 27 yard touchdown pass against the Bengals, that led to a Cowboys comeback win.

The Lufkin native is having the best season of his NFL career.  The former first round pick has caught a touchdown pass in five straight games.  Bryant leads the NFL with nine second half touchdown catches.
