So I’m currently flying somewhere over Utah, on my way back home from a wedding, trying to decide if in-flight wi-fi is awesome or just a sneaky way to make sure I’m never again off my computer.
I’ve spent the last 30 minutes catching up with our PFT coverage over the weekend — holy crap, Sean Payton — and found no fewer than nine mentions of Dez Bryant.
Let’s make it an even ten.
Bryant wrapped up his first weekend in a Cowboys uniform by twisting his ankle at the end of Sunday’s minicamp practice and walking “gingerly” to the team bus.
The injury is a reminder that perhaps Bryant’s biggest challenge as a rookie will be getting in football shape, and staying healthy after so much time away from football. Wade Phillips didn’t sound worried about the injury, and is even less concerned about Bryant’s ability.
“Dez Bryant is an absolute talent, you don’t see that many come in and look that good that early,” Phillips said.“In 33 years, there’s not very many that I can say look that talented at their position for a three-day period.”
