Dallas (AFP) - The Dallas Cowboys' dramatic 27-26 NFL victory over the New York Giants came at a cost, with wide receiver Dez Bryant expected to miss up to six weeks with a broken foot.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said the team expected Bryant would need surgery to repair the fracture in his right foot and be sidelined four to six weeks.

"We want to be careful about making the entire judgment here," Garrett said shortly after the Cowboys won their 2015 season-opener. "But he did break a bone."

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who threw a game-winning touchdown in the waning seconds, acknowledged that losing Bryant was a blow.

"That's a tough loss," Romo said.

Bryant led the league with 16 touchdown catches last season and inked a new contract with the Cowboys in July worth a reported $70 million over five years.
