Sounds like Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant is getting closer and closer to making it back to the field. ESPN says that Monday he made some big strides in his recovery from a right high-ankle sprain.
He has been ruled out of Saturday’s preseason game against the Texans, but on a positive not was running and cutting off his right foot for the first time since suffering the injury during a practice back on July 30th.
Head coach Wade Phillips said he does not expect Bryant to play during the preseason, but that decision hasn’t been made yet. “We’ll just wait and see,” Phillips said. “I know he wants to play and he feels better, but we still want to make sure that he’s healthy.”
