Ever since returning from a fractured foot in Week 8, Dez Bryant has struggled to return to form.
But after watching film of the Cowboys’ Monday night victory over the Washington Redskins, Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is ready to work under the assumption that the All-Pro receiver is back.
“I would say he's back,” McCarthy said, per the Dallas Morning News. "I know he went through the injury. I thought he was very impressive in the game. … Dynamic player. He looks like he's fully healthy and ready to go to me.”
Bryant’s very impressive night against Washington didn’t even start until the fourth quarter. Up until that point, he had no catches on two targets.
But a quarter later, he had 62 yards on three catches—all of them big. The first was a 42-yard grab to help set up a Cowboys’ field goal, and the final two helped get the team in field goal range on the final drive of the night.
