Dez Bryant: “No doubt” I’m playing Sunday

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant popped up on the injury report as a limited participant in practice because of a back issue, adding an injury concern that the Cowboys really don’t need with quarterback Tony Romo and linebacker Sean Lee already ailing.

Bryant was limited again in practice on Thursday, catching a few passes in the early portion of practice before heading to the back with the team’s trainers. According to Bryant, though, there’s no reason to worry that he’ll miss a game that will decide the NFC East champion.

Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that Bryant said there was “no doubt” that he’ll be in the lineup against the Eagles. Bryant said he first hurt the back during the victory over the Redskins last weekend and that he will see a specialist whenever the season ends in hopes of coming up with a solution to a recurring problem.

Having Bryant in the lineup is obviously a positive for the Cowboys, but the injuries elsewhere on the roster are still going to make for a difficult task for the Cowboys this Sunday.

    Sorry Dez doesn’t matter one bit if you play. Either way your team is getting smashed into the ground on Sunday.

    Now if Orton can aim for the 8′s, rather than Dez’s shoelaces….

    Top 5 WRs in Professional Football – Calvin Johnson, Pierre Garcon, Larry Fitzgerald, AJ Green and Steve Smith. In that order.

    I’d plan on a few extra boxes of tissues for Sunday.

    How is he going to play? Is he going to throw it to himself?

    Maybe this time he will stay on the sidelines until the game is over.

    Yeah, he’ll play right up until the point he throws a tantrum and walks off.

    Ok your playing, but are you going to stay the whole game or go cry alone again when you lose?

    I’m not arrogant, everyone wants to watch me play …

    Looking @ the sack on Cutler the Eagles had last week (5 total) I am not surprised Romo is sitting out.

    Dez thinks he’s the best, and not just wide receiver but the best player in football and is untouchable. He may find out the hard way how human he is when Cary Williams dives into his lower back. Again… goodluck

    Is there “no doubt” you’ll be headed for the showers before the end of the game too?

    I find really funny how all of these eagles fans think they have this game won already. They should just calm down and shut up until the game is actually over because what they think is going to happen just may not and then all of us cowboys fans will have to read all their whining posts about how the refs gave us the game so eagles fans take this advice don’t count your chickens before they hatch… just saying.
