Dez Bryant injured his thumb during training camp this season, but keeps it wrapped up and doesn’t believe that it will impact the upcoming season that’s rapidly approaching.
Calvin Watkins of ESPN reports that Bryant laughed off the injury when asked about it, potentially causing more damage to it during practice on Monday. Team officials stand by Bryant’s analysis, not believing the thumb injury is anything serious to worry about.
What’s more concerning is how the Cowboys’ offense has played so far in the preseason. It’s nothing to get completely serious about, since it is just preseason and there’s not enough data through five possessions to jump to a conclusion, but they wouldn’t be the Dallas Cowboys if the media didn’t jump to conclusions.
According to Watkins, Bryant did his best to take the attention off his thumb and to play down any problems with the first-team offense.
The Cowboys scored just three points with Romo as the quarterback and had another field goal attempt blocked.
“I don’t think there’s a big issue with us,” Bryant said. “We go out and try to execute these plays the best way we possibly can when we go out to practice. I don’t think it’s no concern. Nobody is worried (about) not finding the end zone.”
