Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has undergone surgery on his broken left index finger after postponing the procedure for the final three games of the season.

The team reported Tuesday's successful surgery on its website. Bryant decided to play through the injury because the Cowboys were still in playoff contention. They lost the finale at Washington 28-18.

Bryant suffered the injury Dec. 9.

Surgery for RG3

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III is having surgery today on a torn ligament in his right knee -- and to see if there's a second ligament that needs to be repaired.

Baylor coach Art Briles confirmed to USA Today and The Associated Press on Tuesday that the rookie has a torn lateral collateral ligament. He said the surgery also will determine whether Griffin has damaged his ACL in that knee.

A torn LCL requires a rehabilitation period of several months. A torn ACL usually requires nine to 12 months of recovery.

Briefly

Cowboys: TE Jason Witten on Feb. 1 will receive the Bart Starr Award, presented by Athletes in Action to an NFL player for "outstanding character and leadership in the home, on the field and in the community."

Eagles: Ex-Bears coach Lovie Smith will interview for Philadelphia's vacant head coaching position.

Bears: Marc Trestman, coach of the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes, interviewed for Chicago's coaching position. The Bears will also interview Vikings assistants Mike Singletary and Mike Priefer.

Jets: Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano was fired, and defensive coordinator Mike Pettine will not return.

Cardinals: Steve Keim, the team's vice president for player personnel, was promoted to general manager.

Jaguars: Jacksonville hired Falcons director of player personnel David Caldwell as general manager.
