Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Cowboys' Bryant has broken finger; status uncertain

The SportsXchange

X-rays revealed on Monday that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant sustained a fractured left index finger in Sunday's game, ESPN.com reported, but his status for the final three regular-season games is still undetermined.

Bryant may need surgery, and if he does, he will miss the rest of the season. A decision on how to proceed has not been made.

The team sent the receiver to meet with a hand specialist on Monday, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday afternoon.

Garrett told reporters no decision has been made regarding Bryant's availability for the next game or any future games.

There had been fears that Bryant had suffered torn ligaments in the finger, ESPN reported, but that apparently turned out not to be the case.

In the past five games, four of which Dallas won, Bryant has 525 receiving yards and seven touchdowns on 33 catches.

Bryant has 75 catches for 1,029 yards and nine scores for the season.
