Dez Bryant getting rehab work in

December, 26, 2013
IRVING, Texas -- Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant caught some passes during individual drills but started doing rehab work prior to team drills during Thursday's practice.

Bryant tweaked his back during Wednesday's practice and team officials limited his work.

"We'll just see how he does," coach Jason Garrett said before Thursday's practice. "He'll go warm up like he normally does and we'll respond accordingly."

Bryant has encountered back issues before. Rest and treatment are normally prescribed to take care of it. Team officials don't believe it's serious and Bryant is expected to play Sunday night against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Quarterback Tony Romo (back), linebacker Sean Lee (neck) and linebacker Ernie Sims (groin) missed practice, as expected.
Calvin Watkins joined in September 2009. He's covered the Cowboys since 2006 and also has covered colleges, boxing and high school sports.
