The injury to receiver Dez Bryant was clearly a huge disappointment for owner Jerry Jones, who was as excited about Bryant performance so far and potential as anyone.
He lamented the fact that Bryant was injured late in practice but he said he was not upset at the coaches for having him out there.
Still he said the Cowboys will continue to look for ways to mitigate potential injuries.
Regarding the injury, Jones said the good news is that it was a classic and clear high ankle sprain with no other structural damage.
"It's nothing complicated, nothing out of the ordinary about the high ankle sprain," Jones said. "It was a textbook high ankle from what we saw on the MRI. He ought to be able to stay off of it without surgery and get back out there. He will be in the walking boot for a week to 10 days. Four to six weeks is the standard. We will see how long it will be."
