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.
