Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant received a PRP injection Friday to help speed up the healing process following foot surgery, USA Today reports.

"There is not a concern about his progress," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "The fact that he can do that (injection therapy) is a positive. This was not something to address something that was a surprise or anything. It was something to get him some additional strength."

The platelet-rich plasma injection is intended to boost healing in an area that doesn't get a lot of blood flow. The Cowboys will be on bye following Sunday's game against the Patriots, and the team should have a better idea of Bryant's progress and possible timetable for a return during that week.
