IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has undergone surgery on his broken left index finger after postponing the procedure for the final three games of the season.
The team reported Tuesday's successful surgery on its website. Bryant decided to play through the injury because the Cowboys were still in playoff contention. They lost the finale at Washington 28-18 with the NFC East title at stake.
Bryant broke the finger in the fourth quarter at Cincinnati on Dec. 9 and caught a game-changing touchdown pass after the injury. He had a career-high 224 yards two weeks later against New Orleans. A franchise record-tying touchdown streak of seven games ended against the Redskins.
The third-year pro finished with career highs of 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.
