The Cowboys have suffered all kinds of injuries this season, so it was only fitting they had another huge setback in the biggest game of the year -- with the NFC East title and a playoff berth on the line.

WR Dez Bryant missed most of the second half of Sunday night's 28-18 loss to the Washington Redskins after sustaining a lower back injury that forced him out of the game. Bryant had to be helped off the field and never could put full support on his feet, even into the locker room after the game. Bryant was able to slowly walk to the team buses that were headed to the airport.

Bryant's injury only added to the Cowboys' problems at receiver, considering Miles Austin had an ankle injury that kept him from playing most of the game.

Bryant had been the Cowboys' best player down the stretch, catching a touchdown in seven straight games -- a streak that ended Sunday night when Bryant had four catches for 71 yards. Bryant had a career season with 92 catches for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns.
