Our old pal Richie Whitt is among those reporting that the Cowboys' star receiver is out for the season, which would be "devastating" news if it didn't come two days after the Cowboys received actually devastating news. (Richie's reporting it a little more forcefully than others.)
Bryant has averaged 110 yards and 1.5 touchdowns in his last four games. Together with Miles Austin's body being less durable than a 33-year-old newspaper editor's, this probably means the Cowboys' already slim playoff hopes just went on a juice fast.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
