Bryant Expects To Be "100 Percent" After The Bye



    Cowboys’ receiver Dez Bryant has played less than a half of football at full health this season, but according to Bryant himself, that could all change in the team’s week six match-up with the New England Patriots.

    According to an account in the Dallas Morning News today, Bryant yelled across the locker room following a light practice Wednesday, “I'll be 100 percent next week.”

    After suffering a thigh contusion on a punt return in the season opening loss to the Jets, Bryant has been limited. He missed the team’s week two game against San Francisco, but has played through the past two weeks, against Washington and Detroit. Against the Lions, he had two touchdown catches, but seemingly disappeared in the second half.

    "It's been hard because he hasn't been able to practice very much, but he's gotten himself to the point where he's been able to loosen that thing up and get through ballgames," head coach Jason Garrett said.
