Dez Bryant has a 'little bit of a foot injury'
By Todd Archer
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was listed as a full participant in Wednesday’s practice, but coach Jason Garrett said there were some limitations because of a mildly sprained left foot.
“He just didn’t take every single rep like he normally does,” Garrett said. “That’s just a function of we played Sunday night, he has a little bit of a foot injury and we want to make sure he’s healthy and ready to go this ballgame. No setbacks. Maybe just a little bit more of a limited practice than a typical Wednesday.”
Bryant will practice today, but the team will continue to monitor his work.
Garrett said defensive end Anthony Spencer had a “good day” on Wednesday even though he was limited in practice. Spencer took backup snaps in his first work since having knee surgery on July 25. Garrett said the team will evaluate how Spencer feels after the next few days before determining whether he will be able to make his debut Sunday at Kansas City. Spencer is not practicing Thursday, which was a planned day off.
“It looks like he’s getting himself acclimated to playing football again,” Garrett said.
