-- Dallas Cowboys rookie receiver Dez Bryant will be sidelined the rest of training camp and perhaps for the entire preseason with a right high-ankle sprain.

After the team announced that its first-round pick will miss four to six weeks, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones questioned whether Bryant should have been participating so late in Friday's practice session.

Bryant was injured on the second-to-last play of practice in the Alamodome.

In a word, alot. First year rookie WR have a hard tim adjusting to the game as is, let alone missing training camp and preseason. He has good raw skills, but is that enough?

That really sucks. I hate the Cowboys but I was interested in seeing how Bryant would do. Missing training camp means his rookie season will likely be a washout.

agree,felt the same way when Crabtree held out last year,he does seem like the real deal though

It means he wont be a factor at the beginning of the year but once he gets healthy and they can start to work him into the offense he will be a big player down the stretch. I think by mid season he is a huge part of the offense.

Uh, Michael Crabtree held out until when -- was it week 5? Then came in and ended up leading the Niners in YPC, came in second in total yards and third in receptions. That's after missing a quarter of the season, playing for a run-first team, and it's not like he had Peyton Manning throwing to him. By most accounts Bryant is better than Crabtree, and at the worst will only miss the preseason games. I think he'll do just fine, unfortunately.
