Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is on target to play against the Seattle Seahawks this Sunday after missing the past several weeks with a broken foot. David Moore of The Dallas Morning News reported Bryant’s progress.
The Cowboys will certainly welcome Bryant back with open arms. Since losing him to injury in Week 1, Dallas has stumbled to a 2-4 record and last place in the NFC East thanks to also losing quarterback Tony Romo to a broken collarbone, which is expected to sideline him a few more weeks.
But getting Bryant back on the field should be considered a step forward for the Cowboys, as guys like Cole Beasley and Terrance Williams, though talented, cannot carry the offense the same way. Bryant has posted 386 receptions for 5,742 yards and 56 touchdowns since being drafted out of Oklahoma State back in 2010 and is a two-time Pro Bowler. Even if someone like Matt Cassel or Brandon Weeden is getting him the ball, he’ll find a way to make Dallas’ offense more effective.
Hopefully, he can get the team on a winning streak so that they are still in the playoff picture by the time that Romo returns.
Kickoff at AT&T Stadium is slated for 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox.
