Cowboys’ Bryant misses practice, plans to play
Dallas receiver Dez Bryant says he will play in a
winner-take-all finale against Philadelphia despite missing
practice because of a persistent back problem.
Bryant was downgraded on the practice report Thursday, a day
after being a limited participant when the back flared up. He said
he aggravated his back in the 24-23 win over Washington.
The Cowboys (8-7) play the Eagles (9-6) on Sunday night in their
third straight season-ender with the NFC East title and a playoff
berth on the line.
Bryant said he planned to have doctors take a closer look at his
back after the season. He had back problems last season as
Receiver/kick returner Dwayne Harris (hamstring) was upgraded to
a full participant.
