Dez Misses Practice, But Cowboys Not Worried

Dez Bryant was held out of practice over the weekend with mild discomfort in his hip and his quad



    Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant sat out of practice both on Saturday and Sunday, with some discomfort in his hip and quad, remaining off to the side where he threw and caught some passes. Neither Bryant nor owner Jerry Jones seems all that concerned by the fourth-year receiver’s status.

    There’s nothing wrong with my hip,” Bryant responded, per the Dallas Morning News, when asked about what reportedly kept him sidelined.

    Jones added that he had “no concern whatsoever” about Bryant’s status moving forward, adding that Bryant’s absence from practice this weekend was “just precautionary.”

    Also sidelined over the weekend was Cole Beasley, who suffered a contusion on his left quad last week.

    “I thought I was going to be back today, but I couldn’t really plant off of it real well, so hopefully tomorrow,” Beasley said Saturday. “That’s the goal.”
