Report: After tests, nothing wrong structurally with Dez Bryant's back

By Josh Katzowitz | NFL Writer

Aside from the disappointment of losing a win-and-you're-in-the-playoffs season finale to the Redskins, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant could barely walk following the game after suffering a back injury that kept him out most of the fourth quarter. In fact, he had to use a wheelchair while leaving the stadium.

Luckily for Bryant, tests have shown there's nothing structurally wrong with his back, according to ESPNDallas.com.

Bryant had a painful end to his best season as a pro. To go with 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns -- all career-best marks -- he played with a broken index finger in the final three games that could have resulted in long-term damage.

At this point, it's unclear whether Bryant will have to undergo surgery on his finger.

In other Cowboys injury news, outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware will need surgery on his hyperextended elbow and his shoulder.
