Dez Bryant injury: Cowboys WR injured making tackle vs. Giantshurt

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

The Cowboys are missing their top playmaker on offense following an interception by Tony Romo.

Update: Dez Bryant has returned to the field for the Cowboys and no mention of the nature of the injury has been reported.

The Cowboys' passing game could be in trouble Sunday afternoon after wide receiver Dez Bryant left the field against the Giants due to an injury suffered while tacking cornerback Antrel Rolle, who had just intercepted a pass from Tony Romo.

After the play ended, Bryant laid on his back and moved around in pain on the field. He was checked out and limped off on his own power. He hung his head as he jogged to the sideline and immediately headed to the trainer's table.

The Cowboys currently lead the Giants 7-0 in the first quarter, after Victor Cruz was stripped off the ball by a Cowboys defender and the ball was taken to the end zone for a score.

Bryant had one catch for 11 yards before leaving.
