Dallas Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones stated in a recent radio interview that they are mulling the possibility of star wide receiver Dez Bryant rejoining the team in Week 7 for their game against the New York Giants. Bryant, who is still recovering from a broken right foot he suffered mid-September, will reportedly have the final whether he would play.
"I don't know what 100 percent means in this particular case. One-hundred percent healed? One-hundred percent from the standpoint of no sensation, no sensitivity? I don't think you would have no sensitivity,” Jones said to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas Tuesday.
"But I do think that the combination of all the work he's done, which has been extraordinary, as well as some of the additional procedures that were done, give us a lot of confidence that, if he's comfortable putting it down and driving off on his foot, then we're comfortable with him playing."
According to separate repots, Bryant’s status will be updated throughout the week with the star WR being re-evaluated in the next two days, and as of Tuesday night, that Bryant is still 50-50 for the game against the Giants. The new report is good news for the Cowboys, which learned last Monday that Bryant’s return for Week 7 was "highly unlikely."
Bryant, who broke his fifth metatarsal in his right foot, went under the knife for the injury and was pegged to miss six to eight weeks.
Bryant injured his foot against the New York Giants in Week 1 when the Cowboys notched the victory, 27-26. Dallas had gone 1-3 since with a win over the Philadelphia Eagles and losses to the Atlanta Falcons (39-28), New Orleans Saints (26-20) and New England Patriots (30-6).
