“I got hit in my back. That’s what happened,” Bryant said, via ESPN. “If you take a blow to the back the way I took a blow to the back, you’re probably going to feel the same way I feel.”
He has dealt with the pain all week, but ahead of the game against the St. Louis Rams he won’t receive a pain injection.
“I can roll,” Bryant said, via ESPN Dallas. “We were just watching the situation. Don’t want to go out there and do anything crazy. We’ve got a long season.”
Through two games he has 13 catches for 163 yards and one touchdown. The Cowboys’ play callers have come under fire for under-utilizing him in the game against the Chiefs including a lot of one-on-one situations.
Bryant has a history of injuries as well, and back injuries in particular. At the end of the 2012 season he was hit in the back and left the stadium in a wheel chair. Whether it was needed or a precaution has been debated. Despite sitting out practice in the week and doing light jogging instead, he returned to practice on Friday as a full participant.
