After Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant made an appearance at rookie minicamp over the weekend, head coach Jason Garrett offered something of an update on Bryant’s rehab from foot surgery.
Bryant had surgery on his right foot in January after being placed on injured reserve for the final two games of the season. He had missed five games earlier in the year after initially breaking his foot in the season opener against the Giants.
“He’s done a really good job with his rehab, and he’s made progress,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “Like with all those guys, it’s a day-by-day, week-by-week thing. But he’s had no setbacks, but he really continues to get better and better.”
Garrett says the team doesn’t have a firm timetable for Bryant’s return to regular workouts.

“I don’t think there’s any balance. It’s all about just being healthy,” Garrett said. “As soon as he’s healthy, he’ll get integrated back in. He’s doing everything we’re asking him to do with his rehab, and he’s making progress. There will be different thresholds he’ll have as we would with any injured player, ‘He’s doing this well, let’s take the next step. He’s doing this well, let’s take the next step.’ So we’ll do that with him, and hopefully over the course of the offseason and into training camp he’ll start playing some football with us.”
