Dez Bryant is limited with sore back
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was limited during the Christmas Day practice with a sore back.
Update: Bryant injured his back in Wednesday's practice but team officials don't believe it's anything serious.
Bryant has dealt with back issues in the past.
Wide receiver Dwayne Harris was also limited in practice with a pulled hamstring, but after missing the last two games with the injury, the Cowboys are being cautious with his health. Harris is expected to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
As expected, linebackers Sean Lee (neck) and Ernie Sims (groin), and quarterback Tony Romo (back) did not practice.
There was some good news on the injury report as cornerback Morris Claiborne practiced fully as his recovery from a hamstring injury is almost complete. Jason Hatcher (neck), DeVonte Holloman (hip), George Selvie (back), DeMarcus Ware (back) and Jarius Wynn (chest) also practiced fully.
