Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is getting closer to seeing the field after undergoing ankle surgery earlier in the year. Reports are Bryant has looked good in workouts ahead of the 2016 season. MRI’s have shown his bone has completely healed and he’ll be ready to go when the season starts.
For Bryant, the ultimate competitor, the start of the season can’t come fast enough. Many publications have given Bryant less-than stellar grades heading into the season. Pro Football Focus listed him outside the Top 5 players. On his own team.
Hard to argue the ranking from a statistical point of view. Bryant played in 9 games in 2015, and he was fully-healthy in none of them. In fact, playing too fast lead to another surgery which has currently sidelined him from OTA practices.
Where does all of this leave Bryant? Every player deserves a mulligan once in their careers, especially when it comes to injury. If there’s any player that can prove they never left the top of the hill, it’s Bryant.
