Dez Bryant made enormous strides this season and labored through a few injuries and fractured finger to try to will the Cowboys to the playoffs.
The Cowboys came up short Sunday night, and during the game Bryant had to leave the ballgame because of injury. No not the finger injury, but back spasms.
ESPN Dallas is reporting that Bryant’s back spasms were so severe, he had to be hospitalized because of them. Bryant declined comment on the matter.
“It completely locked up on him after the game,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said of Bryant’s back. “He couldn’t, literally people had to help him get his clothes on after the game, carry him to the bus and we put him up in first class on the plane so he could have a little space and some comfort.”
“We think ultimately it’s going to get under control,” Garrett said. “It’s a pretty significant injury, and he obviously couldn’t come back and play and really couldn’t walk until this morning.
Bryant will have plenty of time to rest his ailing back, on top of that, he still has to have surgery on the index finger at a yet to be determined time.
