Dez Bryant should probably sit this entire season out.

Well, the news for the Dez Bryant and the Cowboys just got a little more grim, as Bryant’s time frame to be out has been extended to 10-12 weeks. Bryant underwent a bone graft, which is actually a good thing, but it forces him to miss more time on the field.

From NFL.com:

The Cowboys discussed putting Bryant on Injured Reserve/Designated-to-Return, which would have knocked him out a minimum of eight weeks. Coach Jason Garrett said Friday, “In Dez’s case, we want to give him every opportunity to be back as soon as he can.”

A bone graft means that surgeons transplanted bones to the area where Dez’s injury occurred. It helps in the healing process if the doctor fears the injury can occur again or cannot if they feel the injury won’t heal on its own.

The ESPN surgeon isn’t sounding so crazy now, is he?
