Dez Bryant Broken Bone in Foot - Out 4-6 Weeks

The Dallas Cowboys pulled out a last minute victory over the New York Football Giants on Sunday Night Football, but in doing so, lost their star WR Dez Bryant to a broken bone in his foot.  Bryant did catch 5 of his 7 targets for 58 yards, but was not on the field during the Cowboys game winning drive with less than two minutes and no timeouts.  Instead, Romo turned to an old friend, Jason Witten, who was standing on the goal line when caught his second TD of the game.

Lance Dunbar led the 'Boys with 70 receiving yards and tied Witten with 8 receptions.  Terrance Williams matched Witten's 60 yards.

Dallas ran the ball 22 times, and 16 of them went to Joseph RandleDarren McFadden saw 6 carries.  Randle broke off a 15 yard run, totaling 65 yards, raising his yards per carry to 4.1,   DMC averaged just 2.7 YPC.

There were many WR injuries on Sunday, including T.Y. Hilton who could miss multiple games for the Indianapolis Colts and DeSean Jackson, who is waiting on an MRI to determine the severity of his hamstring injury.

Mike Evans missed Sunday's action, in a disastrous start to Jameis Winston's career.  Winston was 16/33 for 210 yards, and tossed two TDs to TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins.  However, the first pass he attempted went for 6 points the other way.  Marcus Mariota shined in the battle of the rookies, scoring four touchdowns, to four different receivers, on just 13 completions. 

Demaryius Thomas is waiting for results of an X-ray on his hand.

Brian Quick was also inactive for the St. Louis Rams OT win over the Seattle Seahawks.

As we mentioned in the T.Y. Hilton post yesterday, fantasy football owners won't necessarily have to play the waiver wire, if you drafted correctly.  You should have a solid WR on your bench that you were prepared to start for situations just like this.  If for some reason you do in fact need to add a receiver, place a waiver claim on the following receivers:
