Cowboys vs. Steelers: Fractured finger doesn't slow Dez Bryant

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Dez Bryant had a great game against the Pittsburgh Steelers despite playing with a fractured finger.

Dez Bryant fractured his finger during last week's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and it came out shortly after that he would need surgery on the finger. Fortunately for the Cowboys, he wasn't slowed down by the injured finger during Dallas' big win over the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday afternoon.

Bryant put together a four-catch game for 59 yards, a 24-yard touchdown among them. He has been one of the brightest stars for the team in their late season resurgence, catching eight touchdowns during the 5-1 run that has put them right back in the thick of things in the NFC East.

He impressed his teammates with the big performance through injury. After the game, tight end Jason Witten said, "He really stepped up, and he’s a big-time player, and I think he showed it tonight. He’s in the fraternity of tough guys. That’s not easy to do what he did."

Bryant will eventually need to have surgery, but as long as he keeps putting performances up like he did Sunday, he'll probably remain on the Cowboys starting unit.
