How much better can it get for the 5-1 Dallas Cowboys heading into their bye week? How about getting star receiver Dez Bryant back when they return to the field?
Bryant told NFL Network reporter Jane Slater after Sunday’s 30-16 win against the Green Bay Packers that he will be back when Dallas takes the field against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 8.
“Don’t have to ask me anymore, I’m good,” Bryant said. “…playing against Philly.”
Bryant, who has 11 catches for 150 yards and one touchdown this season, has missed the past three games with a knee injury, but the Cowboys haven’t missed a beat, going 3-0 without their Pro Bowl wideout. Bryant was limited to just three games last season due to foot and ankle injuries.
Now, will Tony Romo also be cleared to play against the Eagles, and if so, will he get his starting job back?
