Dez Bryant practicing Thursday, Anthony Spencer isn’t

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was listed as a full participant at practice on Wednesday, but coach Jason Garrett admitted on Thursday that it was a slight exaggeration.

The good news for the Cowboys is that the exaggeration doesn’t appear to lessen his chances of playing against the Chiefs. Bryant is battling a foot sprain and Garrett said the team was keeping that in mind while doling out reps at practice while making it clear that Bryant hadn’t suffered a downturn in health.

“He just didn’t take every single rep like he normally does,” Garrett said, via ESPNDallas.com. “That’s just a function of we played Sunday night, he has a little bit of a foot injury and we want to make sure he’s healthy and ready to go this ballgame. No setbacks. Maybe just a little bit more of a limited practice than a typical Wednesday.”

Bryant will practice on Thursday with the team continuing to monitor his workload. Defensive end Anthony Spencer won’t practice on Thursday after returning to work in a limited fashion on Wednesday. The team says it is a schedule day off for Spencer after his first day back on the field following knee surgery. Garrett said Spencer is “getting himself acclimated to playing football again” and that a determination on his status for Sunday hasn’t been made yet.

    Take your time A. Spencer.

    Selvie has looked great at DE. Perhaps Jerry will figure out he doesn’t need you and free up millions in cap space.
