Practice report: Romo, Bryant on hand
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Quarterback Tony Romo is practicing Wednesday, but the Dallas Cowboys are not sure how much wide receiver Dez Bryant will be able to work today.
Romo suffered bruised ribs in the second quarter of Sunday’s 36-31 win against the New York Giants but returned to the game. Romo said after the game and on Monday he would be fine. He is wearing his normal rib protectors and not anything extra.
Bryant had a mild left foot sprain in the second half of the Giants’ game. Coach Jason Garrett said the team will see how Bryant performs early in practice before deciding how much work he has in the session.
Defensive end Anthony Spencer is in pads for the first time since undergoing knee surgery on July 25. Spencer increased his running late last week but did not play against the Giants. He said he hopes to be ready for Sunday’s game at Kansas City. Garrett said they would not put Spencer in a game until they feel like he will hold up physically.
Cornerback Morris Claiborne is dealing with a dislocated left shoulder and is practicing with a harness. Like Bryant, Claiborne was able to return to the Giants’ game but was in discomfort on Monday.
Running back Lance Dunbar (foot) and safety Danny McCray (hamstring) returned to practice after not playing in Week 1. Dunbar had been out since the Aug. 17 preseason game at Arizona, and McCray has not practiced since the Aug. 24 preseason game against Cincinnati.
After practice the Cowboys will release a full injury report detailing how much a player practiced.
