Dez Bryant Will Delay Surgery and Attempt To Play Against Pittsburgh Steelers

A fractured left index finger will not keep Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant out of Sunday’s pivotal match up against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Bryant will delay surgery and attempt to play in the game against Pittsburgh, per ESPN’s Ed Werder.

Doctors told Bryant that he could play as long as he understood there is the potential for long term damage to the injured finger.

In order to help Bryant on the field, Dallas and their medical staff will create a special brace for his index finger in hopes of allowing him to play without pain.

Bryant attempting to play goes a long way in showing his maturity and leadership with the team.
