First there was the status regarding Dez Bryant, who has missed the last two games with injury.
Garrett on Dez returning to practice yesterday: “He looked good, hopefully he’ll be able to do a little more today.
Word trickled out on Wednesday that Dez was practicing (during the portion open to the media at least) and did so without any kind of knee brace/wrap. This is highly encouraging considering the Cowboys head to Lambeau Field – a place Dez surely wants some revenge on – this Sunday.
Coach Garrett also dished out some info on a player who knows Dez well, considering he’s lined up against him so frequently in practice.
JG says Morris Claiborne turned his ankle yesterday in practice and they don’t think it’s serious.
Cowboys Nation held their collective breaths when, on Wednesday as well, Morris Claiborne appeared on the Injury Report. It seems that everything is alright though, which is a great sigh of relief as through five games Mo is not only playing the best football of his career, but he is this team’s Defensive MVP.
The Cowboys square off against the Packers in just three days, and they are on bye next week. Injuries have not been kind to the Cowboys so far this season yet they find themselves at 4-1 and atop the NFC East.
Regardless of the circumstances, in Jason Garrett’s immortal words, we can trust the Coaching Staff to handle these two situations the same way they’ve handled them all to this point. That formula has proven successful.
