Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant sustained a concussion during Monday's practice and will not take part in the preseason game vs. Seattle on Thursday.
"I promise I'm OK, Cowboys Nation,'' Bryant tweeted early Tuesday morning as the team continued its preparation for preseason Game 3.
The Cowboys haven't had many health issues this summer; on Tuesday during practice, Orlando Scandrick, Sean Lee and Ezekiel Elliott all worked the resistance cords before the workout and then Elliott took his soon-to-be-regular spot at the top of the running-back rotation. But for the moment, Bryant and defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford (who sustained a concussion during Sunday's practice) leave a couple of holes in the starting lineup.
Moments after the release of this information, 105.3 The Fan asked owner Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones about both players. He said they are “being monitored” and “it shouldn’t impact them over the long haul.”
Though the Cowboys are planning to finally have rookie running back Elliott (hamstring) in action, Jones noted that he wasn't sure Zeke would be ready to go. He also shot down the idea of pursuing a vet QB now that rookie Dak Prescott has performed so well.
A news-making early morning at The Star in Frisco ... and likely no more big news regarding on-field work from Dez Bryant until the season-opener September 11th against the New York Giants.null
