- According to Rapoport, the belief is that with rehab, Bryant could end up returning closer to four weeks than six.
- Todd Archer confirms the report and adds that Bryant’s surgery is scheduled for Tuesday.
- Rapoport adds that Dallas has no plans to place Bryant on injured reserve with the designation to return, which would cost him the first eight games of the season.
- Will Carroll has confirmed that Bryant is specifically dealing with a Jones fracture, and Dr. Ken Jung of Kerlan-Jobe said that this could be a six-eight week rehab.
Jones added that Bryant will likely miss four to six weeks following this foot injury, per Charles Robinson. Bryant’s injury will require surgery.
Bryant had to be helped to the locker room in the second half of Sunday night’s game and it was clear that he was dealing with a fairly serious foot injury.

The Cowboys have their bye in Week 6, which means unless he progresses quicker than expected, Week 7 could be the most logical return date for Bryant.
Bryant, 26, signed a massive five-year, $70 million contract that included $45 million guaranteed with the Cowboys this summer.
In 2014, Bryant appeared in all 16 games for the Cowboys and recorded 88 receptions for 1,320 yards receiving and 16 touchdowns.
