By the end of this week, there may be injury issues for every member of the Cowboys.

Wide receiver Dez Bryant tweaked his back at practice on Wednesday and earned a limited designation from the team for his work during the session. Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports that the team does not believe it is anything serious, but Bryant’s got a history of back issues that have hampered him over the years.

One flareup occurred in Week 17 last season when Bryant needed a wheelchair to get off the team’s plane after their season-ending loss to the Redskins. While it appears significantly less serious, Bryant joins Tony Romo and Sean Lee on a list of injured players that the Cowboys really wish were healthy heading into this Sunday’s game with the Eagles.

Believe it or not, there was actually some positive injury news for Dallas on Wednesday. Wide receiver Dwayne Harris practiced in limited fashion after missing the last two games with a hamstring injury and cornerback Morris Claiborne was a full participant as he tries to return from his own hamstring injury.

  1. When it rains it pours.
    The other unfortunate fact of these injuries is, it could provide Jerry another excuse to keep Garrett as head coach for another season.

  2. This team better pray that they don’t make it into the playoffs. Any more injuries, and they’ll have to put Jerrah or some cheerleaders in the game to play.

  3. I’d argue that a team like the Patriots have dealt with the same amount of injuries if not more. Losing should not be acceptable no matter who is on the field. It’s starting to feel like injuries are becoming an easy excuse for another mediocre season for the Cowboys

  4. Truth of the matter is , the envious and winless keep The Dallas Cowboys labelled Americas Team. Jerry sends his appreciation to all those who helped erect the Roman Coliseum II. Dallas is playing in week 17 for the NFC East title at home. We could not ask for more. Thanks for all the attention both positive and negative brought to this game. Get your popcorn ready. Dallas is tough at home. Go Cowboys!

  5. To all you cowboy haters.
    See we are again on Prime time Tv
    You may hate us but the Tv people and football fans will always want to watch us
    Mostly to see us beat I would expects
    If most of the fans who have an actual team support them and sell your stadium game out and don’t worry about us
    We are rotten but we have sold out every home game we also sell out your games
    How many of you have had a winner takes all on last game for past 3 years

  6. Quick! Get him an epidoral so she and Toni Romo can give birth together. Nah, it doesn’t matter. Even with the Grand Goober and his lovely diva, they don’t have a chance against the Chip Kelly Experience
