Dez Bryant cheats death while making healthy soup

Dez Bryant makes his living with his body, so it’s good to know he’s at least taking care of it.

Sort of.

Via Todd Archer of, the Cowboys wide receiver was at practice Wednesday with tape on his right middle and ring fingers, after a potentially calamitous soup accident.

Bryant said he cut his fingers while chopping up some carrots for homemade soup. He said the injury was “extremely, extremely minor.”

Of course, the bigger concern is with his recovery from a knee injury, but he said he’d be fine when the Cowboys return from their bye week to play the Eagles in Week Eight.

And it’s also good to know that whenever he meets up with the Giants, he’ll have a decided culinary advantage over cornerback Eli Apple.
