Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been diagnosed with a sprained left foot. X-rays came back negative, however, so he seems to have avoided the dreaded Lisfranc injury. It's unknown when Bryant suffered the injury and the Cowboys have not stated whether or not he will play next week's game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Bryant was draped by double coverage all night in Sunday's win over the Giants, being held to four catches for 22 yards.
Fantasy impact: Foot sprains are a nightmare for receivers with no certain timetable, but Bryant has played through injuries in the past. We'll be keeping an eye on his practice reps this week, but fantasy owners should start looking for a backup plan. Even at 100 percent, Bryant will command enough extra attention to open up space for Miles Austin. Austin benefited from Bryant's double coverage on Sunday night and is worth rostering as an WR3.
