Cowboys’ Dez Bryant looks good in practice

There has been some concern about arguably the Dallas Cowboys’ best player’s health. Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has been dealing with some back issues and had an MRI earlier in the week. There were some concerns Bryant could have a bulging or herniated disc but Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said it is muscular related.

“I think we’re going to be fine,” Jones said, via ESPN Dallas.

According to ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins, Bryant looked good in practice on Friday.

“We don’t seem to have any long-term concern about that at all,” coach Jason Garrett said. “We’re just trying to address an issue. If you look at our locker room and probably locker rooms all over the league a lot of guys are nicked up this time of year and you’ve got to do your best as a medical staff to get them healthy, to get them out on the practice field and get them ready to play on Sunday.”

    This issue is a blunt, eye-opening wake up call for the Dallas coaches and serves to demonstrate just how quickly a team’s standing can change in the space of a week. Romo and the coaches rely too much on Bryant’s considerable talents because, monumental ego or not, he produces. Speaking from firsthand knowledge, I can tell you that if the reports coming out today are true and Bryant has a blown disc, it’ll take him a year to recover and learn to walk upright again following a discectomy, not to mention running or competing at an elite level. A season without Bryant is a scary thought for the Dallas offense to contemplate. I’m beginning to see why the coaches have given Austin the task of getting completely well and making himself fully ready to go just in time for any playoff run they might make.
