Dez Bryant suffers injury while making soup

Dez Bryant has missed the past three games due to a knee injury, but he’s expected to return following the Cowboys’ Week 7 bye. He’s certainly trending in the right direction as he was on the practice field, despite being limited.

His limited designation wasn’t because of the knee ailment, though. It was because of an “extremely minor” hand injury – a finger issue, to be exact.

Bryant said on Wednesday that he cut his fingers while chopping carrots for his homemade soup. While he laughed about the situation after practice, this by no means is a joke – it actually happened.

Bryant still caught passes in practice and appeared to be just fine. Jason Garrett acknowledged Bryant’s accident, and said this when asked if Dez needs to hire a cook.

“We got to address that somehow.”

As long as Bryant’s fingers don’t look anything like Indians pitcher Trevor Bauer’s, he’ll be good. And by all accounts right now, it’s no concern to Dez or the team.
