Cowboys have guidelines in place for Dez Bryant
Bryant missed nearly his entire last college season at Oklahoma State because of an NCAA suspension for lying about having dinner with Deion Sanders. He ran up hundreds of thousands of dollars in bills on game tickets and jewelry, and was sued by people who said they were creditors.
Last year, he was kicked out of an upscale Dallas mall for wearing sagging pants. In January, he was reportedly involved in a fight with the rapper Lil Wayne at a Miami nightclub.
Bryant said during the offseason that he was spending more time with the playbook, watching more film and concentrating on his conditioning. There were no issues until the incident with his mother, and haven’t been any known problems since then.
During the early portion of practice Monday open to reporters, Bryant was initially catching some passes from backup quarterback Rudy Carpenter. Bryant, who has been dealing with right knee tendinitis, then did some rehab work with a trainer alongside tight end Jason Witten (spleen).
Bryant and the most of the Cowboys starters aren’t expected to play in Wednesday night’s preseason finale against Miami. That comes a week before their regular-season opener at the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
Teammate Marcus Spears said the guidelines were between Bryant and team ownership, but that he was “pretty sure” they were on the same page.
“Whatever they’re doing, they’re doing the right things,” backup quarterback Kyle Orton said. “He’s a special player. He’s one of those guys, you find ways to get him the ball. … You want to give him a lot of touches because one of those touches is going to be a special play, and there’s very few of those guys around.”
