Dez Returns to Practice

Dez Bryant missed Wednesday's practice after tweaking his back against the Chiefs



    Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was back at practice on Thursday, after missing Wednesday with a sore back, but he was limited in what he could do. Bryant tweaked the back during his nine-catch, 141-yard performance last week against the Chiefs, but finished the game.

    “Sometimes these injuries come up with guys and you just have to get through them,” head coach Jason Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “I don’t know that age is really a factor here. Dez is a really tough guy. He typically comes back from injury fairly well and fairly quickly.”

    According to reports, Bryant’s workout on Thursday mostly involved him jogging routes and catching passes from assistant strength coach Brett Bech.

    In addition to Bryant, defensive end Anthony Spencer returned on Thursday as well. Spencer saw limited action in the loss to the Chiefs, his first game back since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery in July, and will likely see limited action in the Week Three matchup with the Rams.
