ARLINGTON, Texas - It wasn't bad enough for Prince Amukamara that the Cowboys came back to beat his Giants. The fact that they did it without their most dangerous offensive player made it worse.

"Man," Amukamara said, "we have to win when Dez is out."

That would be Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who missed a chunk of the first half Sunday night with dehydration and then left the game in the fourth quarter with what later was announced as a broken foot. He'll have a screw inserted, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said, and be sidelined four to six weeks.

Bryant finished the game with five catches for 48 yards.

When told of the extent of Bryant's injury, Amukamara was shocked. Then he noted that it might even the playing field for everyone else.

"You never want somebody out," he said, "but I know if Odell [Beckham Jr.] was out on our team, people in our division, they wouldn't be happy he was out but they wouldn't be mad, either."

NFC East teams likely feel the same way about Bryant.
