The more news that trickles out about Dez Bryant’s foot injury, the less optimistic Cowboys brass are likely to be.

Bryant suffered a foot injury in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys victory over the Giants on Sunday Night Football, and it’s now being reported that injury is worse than expected.

The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Bryant suffered a Jones Fracture, the same injury that ended Kevin Durant’s season.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot, according to a source. The injury is known as a Jones fracture and requires surgery to correct. He is scheduled to have the operation on Tuesday.

That’s the same injury as Thunder star Kevin Durant, who had to have three surgeries and was shut down for the season last year.

Bryant’s last play of Sunday’s game came in the first minute of the fourth quarter when he caught a pass on a crossing route.

Dallas recently signed him to a five-year, $70 million contract in which he got $45 million guaranteed. Such freak injuries are the reason Bryant politicked so hard for a new deal.

Now the Cowboys will have to decide if this season is worth risking Bryant’s future.
