Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant will try to play on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, despite having a fractured left index finger, per ESPN’s Ed Werder.

The Cowboy and their medical staff will come together to create a special protective device to help Bryant as he deals with the injury.

In order to play, Bryant will be delaying surgery. Doctors told the young star wideout that his fracture will require surgery, but he is still able to play with the injury at this time with the understanding it could create long term damage to his hand.

Bryant is willing to put that all on the line as the Cowboys have a key game against the Steelers.
