Jason Garrett says Dez Bryant has a “little bit of a foot injury”


Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant returned to practice Thursday. Really returned to practice. Wednesday he was listed as a full participant yesterday but reportedly took less reps than usual. According to ESPN Dallas’s Calvin Watkins, Dez is practicing fully on Thursday.

That is good news for Dallas Cowboys fans and fantasy owners with Dez Bryant on their team. He injured his foot in the season opener against the New York Giants but stayed in the game. His X-rays came back negative and after MRIs he was diagnosed with a mild foot sprain.

“He just didn’t take every single rep like he normally does,” Garrett said. “That’s just a function of we played Sunday night, he has a little bit of a foot injury and we want to make sure he’s healthy and ready to go this ballgame. No setbacks. Maybe just a little bit more of a limited practice than a typical Wednesday.”

That’s right, he called it a “little bit of a foot injury.” According to Calvin Watkins assessment of Dez’s performance in practice on Thursday he might be right.
