Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been out since suffering a foot injury in Week 1 against the Giants. His return date is unknown, with various reports and rumors circulating about just how much time he’ll actually miss.

Cowboys Executive V.P. Stephen Jones says that the team is expecting Bryant to be out through the Week 6 bye. That would mean Bryant’s first game back is October 25, on the road against the Giants in Week 7.

Our prognosis has never changed,” Jones said. “I know there have been a lot of people who have doctors on their media staff and like to speculate on these things, but we’ve been pretty consistent from Day One. At first we thought maybe four to six [weeks] and that changed to six to eight. By the next day we were pretty much thinking six to eight. We really feel like it’s a very fair goal to think that Dez will be back after the bye.”

It appears that 8-12 week prognosis for Bryant is all over the place, with Bryant now in a walking boot and no crutches.
