The Cowboys officially ended Dez Bryant's season on Wednesday, placing the rising star on injured reserve, and picked up Keith Cummings off of the Jets practice squad, the team announced.
It was believed that Bryant's season would be over following he broke his ankle Sunday while returning a kick in the fourth quarter of the Cowboys win over the Colts.
"That sets us back," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said at the time. "That sets us back. I really feel bad for him, but it really sets us back."
Bryant struggled to stay healthy during his rookie season, but when he was on the field, he produced, developing a rapport with Jon Kitna and scoring six touchdowns to go along with 45 receptions and 561 receiving yards in 12 games (two started).
He also returned 12 kickoffs for 293 yards (24.4 per) and 15 punts for 215 yards (14.3 per) and two touchdowns.
