Test results revealed no structural damage to the back of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.

In the regular-season finale against Washington, Bryant suffered a back injury in the second half and left FedEx Field in a wheelchair. Bryant, diagnosed with back spasms, was using crutches to walk on Tuesday.

The Cowboys' leading receiver also has a fractured left index finger, suffered with three weeks to play in the regular season, and nothing has been determined as to when he'll undergo surgery.

It's the same case for outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who has shoulder and elbow injuries. Ware said after the loss to the Redskins, he would need surgery to repair a hyperextended elbow and a shoulder which keeps popping out.

Ware said his elbow gave him more problems than his shoulder.
