Dez Bryant returned to practice on Thursday after missing the team’s workout on Wednesday with tightness in his back.
According to reports, Bryant has dealt with the stiff back on and off throughout 2013, but the team doesn’t believe it’s too serious--and certainly not as serious as it was in the season-ending loss to the Redskins last year, when he had to exit the game early--and Bryant has said he will play against the Saints on Sunday night.
"It's bothering him a little bit off and on," Head coach Jason Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "I don't know if it's the exact same thing, but we don't think it's a significant deal."
Bryant has played in all nine games this season, and has posted 51 catches, 705 yards and eight touchdowns.
