Dez Bryant Cleared, Cowboys Will Continue to Exercise Caution

Bryant is five months removed from surgery to repair a broken foot

Five months after undergoing surgery on his broken foot, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has been cleared to return to football activities, but that doesn’t mean the team intends to just cut the former All-Pro loose when they get together for their mandatory minicamp next week.

In fact, head coach Jason Garrett suggested Bryant will remain limited throughout.

“We’ll have a similar schedule for him next week,” Garrett told the team’s official website. “We’ll bump him up if we feel like we want to, but we don’t anticipate him practicing fully at all in the minicamp but hopefully he will get some productive work in.”

As you might imagine, Bryant would very much like to be a full participant, but he understands the approach the team is taking with his recovery.

“I’ve been cleared, but you know how it goes,” Bryant said. “We’re all just very cautious, just trying to get right. We’ve got a long way before the season starts. We’re just trying to get right.”
