Dez Bryant Returns to Practice After Concussion Protocol

Wide receiver Dez Bryant is back on the field after missing almost a week with a concussion.


Dez Bryant returned to practice on Sunday after missing nearly a week with a concussion. The wide receiver went through individual drills and was a limited participant during the team portion of practice.

"I felt fine. I was really ready to go back but like I said, I had to listen to them [athletic training staff]. I'm good, I'm excited. Nothing has changed, I'm ready to go," said Bryant.

The injury happened during practice when Bryant collided with safety Barry Church. Bryant went through the concussion protocol which forced him to miss Thursday's preseason game in Seattle.

The wide receiver was asked if he's had concussion-like symptoms previously.

"I don't get concussions like that, so I don't know how to answer that question," said Bryant.

Bryant said the only time he's ever had a concussion, by his standards, happened in college at Oklahoma State.
