Cowboys Bryant suffering from back spasms

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is suffering from back spasms that cropped up during Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs.

Bryant came out of the opener with a foot sprain but was able to play the next week in Kansas City. The latest ailment probably won’t keep him out of action, either.

“We don’t think it’s some big issue,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Monday. “He got hit and his back locked up on him. He’s a tough individual and he got himself right and continued to play in the ballgame. He was walking around a little slowly today, but we anticipate him being ready to go.”

Bryant had to be hospitalized with severe back spasms following the final game at Washington last season. However, Bryant left that game in a wheelchair, indicating a far more serious case of spasms.

The players have Tuesday off, which will give Bryant another day to recuperate before the team returns to the practice field.
