Dez Bryant returns to practice, but Roy Williams sits out with multiple injuries



Gerry Fraley – The Dallas Morning News


Wide receivers Dez Bryant and Roy Williams have now gone more than one month without practicing together.


Bryant practiced for the first time since July 30, but Williams was held out because of a strained lower back and hip flexor. If the club holds Williams out Thursday as expected, he will have five days of rest before the next full practice on Monday.


As expected, defensive end Marcus Spears (knee), strong safety Gerald Sensabaugh (shoulder) and Brooking (shoulder) returned to practice with an eye toward being ready for the opener at Washington on Sept. 12. None will play against Miami.


Brooking missed the final week of practice in California because of a sprained joint in the right shoulder. He said the time off should enable him to play in the season opener without having to receive a pain-killing injection.


“I’ve had this before and played through it,” said Brooking, the club’s oldest starter at age 34. “The time off was necessary for me to approach next week.”
