Dez Becoming a Regular at Team Workouts



    After missing the first team-organized workout session a few weeks ago to tend to a family matter, Dallas Cowboys’ second-year receiver Dez Bryant has become a mainstay at the practices, in attendance, by his adviser David Wells, for “10 straight workouts,” or every one since May 4.

    There was some hullabaloo made over Bryant’s absence from that first workout--even though he contacted Tony Romo, who is leading the sessions, prior to the day to let him know he wouldn’t be able to make it.

    Ever since, the only concern over Bryant’s presence is whether he’s working too hard in the unsupervised practices--he is coming off a fractured ankle, which shortened his rookie season by four games, after all. 

    But Romo told reporters recently that, though he occasionally had to tell Bryant to slow down, the young receiver looked good. These sentiments were echoed by Wells.

    "The kid is working hard at his game,” Wells said, per ESPN Dallas. “He's in better shape this year than last year. A lot stronger."
