Dez Bryant Declares He'll Play on Sunday

Bryant suffered a shoulder injury in last week's 26-10 win over the Titans

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant came away from last Sunday’s win over the Titans with a banged up shoulder, which was serious enough to keep him out of practice earlier in the week. Bryant admits he’s still feeling some soreness in the area, but declared that he would play against the Rams this weekend.

I’ll be ready to roll on Sunday,” Bryant told the team’s official website. “Nothing is going to keep me out.”

Despite the injury, Bryant led the team with ten catches, 103 yards and a touchdown, his first of the season. He was able to practice on Thursday, on a somewhat limited basis.

“I’m doing a lot already. It’s still sore,” Bryant said. “The good thing about that is it’s still Thursday and we play Sunday. I’m going to get some treatment and try to get this thing ready.”

Bryant has dealt with his share of injuries since coming into the league in 2010, but he’s managed to appear in all 16 games in each of the past two seasons.
