Dez Bryant Is Back On The Practice Field For The Dallas Cowboys

The star wide receiver was a limited participant in practice just 17 days after sustaining a hairline fracture to his knee.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was on the field Wednesday morning for the first time since week three of the NFL season.

He looks pretty happy to be back!

Bryant missed games against the 49ers and the Bengals after the team discovered a hairline fracture in his knee after the Week 3 win over the Bears. This morning he participated in individualized drills, and seems to be coming along nicely.


"We'll have to see how he works this week," Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan. "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."

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said Monday that Bryant is "moving around better" but the team will take his situation day by day.

The Dallas Cowboys (4-1) travel to Lambeau Field this Sunday to take on the Green Bay Packers (3-1), but they have a bye week following. It will be interesting to see if Bryant decides to suit up, knowing he could have a crucial extra week of rehab at his disposal.
