Dez Bryant has an Injury Set Back; Sits Out of Thursday’s Practice

Practice? We talking about practice? Yes, we are. And specifically about how wideout Dez Bryant sat out of the Dallas Cowboys’ practice today. Bryant evidently aggravated the thigh injury he received back in Week One against the New York Jets.  His sitting out of today’s practice is troubling since Dez was able to practice on Wednesday.

In a  press conference today, Head Coach Jason Garrett addressed the issue:

“It’s just him working through the injury. He has that thigh contusion that he was able to work through last week …When you stress it like you do during the course of a ball game, sometimes it doesn’t bounce back as quickly as you want to. He just has to continue to work his way through it, we’re hopeful by the end of the week he can practice a little bit more and be able to play in the ball game. But we’ll take that one day-to-day.” 

If Bryant can’t go on Sunday, then it leaves Dallas with a very inexperienced wide  receiver corps. WR Kevin Ogletree was simply awful in Monday Night’s game against the Washington Redskins. His lack of knowledge about plays, bad route  running and fumble almost cost Dallas the game. WR Jesse Holley, the hero of Week Two, disappeared in the Redskin’s secondary. But the wideout with the least amount of time on the team, Laurent Robinson, shined. Let’s just hope that Bryant suits up on Sunday.

Also absent from Thursday’s practice were WR Miles Austin (hamstring), K David Buehler (groin), G Derrick Dockery (knee), Jason Hatcher (calf), Tony Fiammetta (hamstring), and Orlando Scandrick (ankle).
