Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant tweeted to his legions of followers on Thursday that he would return to practice after missing five consecutive days of practice with a sore hip and quadriceps.
"I'm back on the practice field today," Bryant tweeted, via ESPN Dallas.
It’s thought that Bryant was only held out so long as a precaution, and owner and general manager Jerry Jones told reporters this week that the team fully expects Bryant to be available when they open up the preseason against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, in the Hall of Fame Game in Canton, OH.
“He can take it easy right now,” Jones said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We got a lot of days left. He is likely to get snaps (against the Dolphins)…very likely. There has been no talk of him not getting snaps. It’s not a hip. It’s just a tweak. He could be out there in a minute. We are just resting it. There has not been a word of him not playing.”
