    Fresh off signing his big, shiny new contract, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant never got to put his best foot forward for the Cowboys in 2016.

    In fact, it was his ailing foot that stood in the way of duplicating his All-Pro level season in 2014. Bryant underwent surgery in September to do a bone graft on his broken foot. He missed time, came back and was never the same — barely even a shell of his former self.

    As soon as the season ended, Bryant went under the knife again and had a similar procedure done. This time, the Cowboys hope the problem is fixed for the long term, and Stephen Jones told reporters at the NFL Combine that Bryant's foot is making good progress.

    “All good with Dez right now. He’s making great progress,” Jones said. “He went to see the doctor last week, and we got a great report.”

    Bryant's injury started a downward spiral of injuries to the Cowboys' top stars, as Tony Romo quickly followed with a broken collarbone in Week 2.
