Dez Bryant had “some sensitivity” in knee running last week

The Cowboys have a bye after their Week Six game against the Packers, which would give wide receiver Dez Bryant two more weeks to recover from the hairline fracture in his knee if he doesn’t play this weekend.

It will probably be close to Sunday before the determination about his spot in the lineup will be made. During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said that Bryant was close to playing in Week Five before a reminder of the injury ruled that out.

“We’ll have to see how he works this week,” Jones said, via the team’s website. “We won’t take any chances there, but with the way he was running at the end of last week, he had some sensitivity or he would’ve played. But we’ll take a good look at it this week.”

When Jones discussed the team’s quarterback situation on Tuesday, he said that Dak Prescott’s play gave the team the luxury to give Romo time to get all the way back to 100 percent. The same could be said of Bryant as the Cowboys have won twice without him and stand at 4-1 heading into the trip to Lambeau Field.

    If Dez is able to practice by Thursday, he has a chance to go, but if not I feel good about the receiving core without him against the packers–who do not boost the most menacing secondary.

    Wow, I have sensitivity in my knee everyday. After 26 years in the Army, you kind of feel that way everyday.

    Well renowned orthopedist Dr. Jones cleared him….

    Thank goodness he doesn’t have any tightening. That kept Bosa out for weeks on end!

    They are on the verge of being everywhere. Lots of NFLers are wearing them in pregame and it’s only a matter of time before they blow up. I won’t buy them, but many will before this fad is over. Why do we see Dez? Because he’s injured and the camera guys always have one on him to catch his reaction to everything.

    well then tell him to sit down on the sidelines………..

    Can you please cover players who actually matter?

  12. bighoser says: Oct 11, 2016 1:31 PM

    He’ll play when Dr. Jones clears him, and not a moment before! It’s just a “pain tolerance issue”, no big deal, so Jerrah should be pushing him out there anytime now…

    S-A-W-F-T!

    Cowboys win at Lambeau.

    Bank it.

    Locker room cancer.

    Can’t win with him.

    Given his maturity level and attitude, I don’t think it’s the knee that is “sensitive”.
