For weeks (more like months, in all honesty), Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has complained of back issues – issues that have kept him out of multiple practices. Despite that, Bryant has continued to play and perform well. So understandably, there hasn’t been much concern over the back ‘injury’, an injury which the Cowboys are confident isn’t a long term problem as the team believes his back to be structurally sound.
The Cowboys do not believe there is a structural issue with Bryant’s back, but it is something that has acted up a few times. The most severe case came in the 2012 season finale at Washington. Bryant could not finish the game and needed a wheelchair to the bus out of FedEx Field. It bugged him some in training camp and earlier in the season.
It is a bit concerning that Bryant has continued to report the lingering issue, especially at his age, but it doesn’t sound as if the team is too worried.
Of course, they still plan to run tests to determine what is causing the flare ups before they shell out heavy cash to Bryant on a future deal.
