Dez Bryant has an irregular heartbeat

At a time when concerns regarding his ability to follow a clock has been called into question, a report has emerged that receiver Dez Bryant may have a flawed ticker.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that Bryant, the 24th pick in the 2010 draft, has an irregular heartbeat.  Bryant told Watkins that the condition was diagnosed at the Scouting Combine in February.

The Cowboys aren’t worried about the situation.  “All of our doctors reviewed that and it’s just not something we were
concerned about,” Cowboys ownerJerry Jones told Watkins.  “As a matter of fact, in visiting with experts in that
area, they really did not in any way make a special notice of it.  More
importantly, more than anything, it isn’t and it wouldn’t have a
negative impact on his ability to be a ball player or affect his
ability to have a normal life.”

Still, he’s not living a normal life.  He’s playing professional football, and he could be taking some solid hits to the portion of his body that houses his heart.  But, surely, if the Cowboys had any real concerns, they wouldn’t have picked him.

    His heart is a concern, but not as much as his head.

    Irregular heartbeat is not a life threatening condition. In fact, it’s not really a “heart” condition, which infers a problem with circulation or the muscle. It’s a nerve condition that fires the heart beat irregularly. Millions of people have an irregular heartbeat and don’t even know it.

    Surely.

    I guess when he starts snorting coke like his boys Irvin and Sanders it will be a real problem.

  14. robert ethan says: Apr 23, 2010 9:06 PM

    Sorry I’m late coach, I guess my heart stopped sometime in the middle of the night.

    The Late Dez Bryant.

    Don’t hate because you’re a broke-ass Raider fan. Is there any other kind?

    Almost everything stinks in Oakland. And everything that doesn’t stink in Oakland is a polesmoker.

    That’s true that many people have it but those people aren’t trying to play pro football which places enormous stress on the cardiovascular system.

    Somany haters that need to just focus on their own teams.
    You can focus on the Cowboys when we beat your ass lil bitches!

    I thought medical information was confidential. There are huge fines (up to $230 million) for preventable release of medical information. So, who ever the guy who leaked it works for is in deep stuff. This is why God made lawyers.

    funny…i thought the Devil made lawyers.
