Dez Held Out Again Tuesday

Dez Bryant is expected to be available for the Hall of Fame Game on Sunday



    Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant missed a fourth consecutive day of practice on Tuesday with a hip issue that the Cowboys maintain is no issue at all. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones in particular was dismissive of what he described as “a tweak,” adding that he fully expects Bryant to be available for Sunday’s Hall of Fame Game against the Dolphins in Canton, Ohio.

    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.”

    In other injury news, quarterback Tony Romo was scheduled to take Tuesday off--a scheduled rest day for Romo--but ended up practicing, anyway.
