The Dallas Cowboys already received one scare on Sunday when quarterback Tony Romo went down in the second quarter with an apparent injury. As it turned out, Romo just got the wind knocked out of him and returned to the game. 

However, the scares weren't over yet. Dallas got a second scare in the fourth quarter when wide receiver Dez Bryant went down with an apparent leg injury after catching a two-yard pass from Romo.

Bryant's injury appeared to be to his ankle, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Bryant got the ankle taped, according to USA Today, and then returned to the game for a Cowboys 2-point converstion attempt.
