For Dez Bryant, the long – long – wait is finally over. The Cowboys’ first-round rookie receiver tweeted that he can take the field against the Dolphins for the team’s final preseason game this Thursday.
Bryant has missed virtually all of training camp and the preseason with an ankle injury. And, thanks to his NCAA suspension, he hasn’t played a true organized football game since September 2009.
The Fort Worth Star Telegram reports that Bryant is indeed medically cleared to play. However, the Cowboys might be cautious and hold him out.
It's a question of is it worth some of the risk," Jerry Jones said. "If we end up playing our regulars, then that might make a difference. We typically have not played a full set of our players, so that might be something we might consider since we've got a chance to have our starters out there."
