Dez Bryant gets “great report” on recovery from surgeries

The Cowboys dealt with injuries to quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant during a disappointing 2015 surgery and Bryant had surgery shortly after the end of the season on both his foot and ankle in hopes of setting the foundation for better results next season.

Bryant had the ankle procedure in addition to a second bone graft in the foot he broke in the first game of the season and Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said Tuesday that a recent visit to the doctor showed all is going well.

“All good with Dez right now. He’s making great progress,” Jones said, via the team’s website. “He went to see the doctor last week, and we got a great report.”

Bryant is expected to be ready for the team’s offseason work, which he missed last offseason while working toward a long-term contract after receiving the franchise tag. Romo’s availability for that work will depend heavily on whether he decides to have surgery on the left collarbone he broke twice last season.

Jones said Romo still hasn’t made a final decision, although the Dallas Morning News reports that he’s leaning toward having part of the bone shaved off or removed rather than having a plate surgically implanted to protect against further injuries.

    “All is good with Dez right now” except he plays for the worst team in the NFC….. Such a waste of talent. If Jones had a heart he would trade Dez to a team that has a chance of at meat making it to a championship game.

    Romo should choose to have “a plate surgically implanted to protect against further injuries.” Then he’d be Robo-Romo

    I heard he went to the doctor and the doctor said no more monkeys jumping on the bed.

    @nhpats

    U have been a patriots fan for 15 years and know nothing beyond that history wise. You couldn’t name 1 patriot from the 70s or 80s…
    Then again you probably only like the patriots because you think Tom Brady is cute

    C’mon given the news coming out of Cowboy cooountry, could Jones really say anything negative?
