Reporters love Jerry Jones for the same reason that probably drives coaches crazy: Jones talks and emotes like a fan when things go wrong.
It’s no surprise, then, that Jones wasn’t pleased when told about Dez Bryant’s high ankle sprain, which will cost the rookie 4-6 weeks. In fact, he nudged his coaching staff under the bus.
ESPN’s Chris Mortensen writes on Twitter that Jones suggested Bryant was “overworked” and wasn’t happy the injury happened on the second to last play of practice after all his reps and his kick return work.
“Got a feeling someone has gotten their butts chewed,” Mort wrote.
Wade Phillips has a pretty sweet gig, but an unreasonable “butt chewing” or five from Jerry Jones every season comes with the territory.
