Dez Bryant says back is 'nothing major'

IRVING, Texas -- Dez Bryant was listed as a full participant in Friday's practice, a good sign for the Dallas Cowboys' top playmaker who said earlier in the week that he would play Sunday.

Bryant, who did not practice Wednesday and was limited Thursday because of a sore back, was listed as probable on the injury report. Bryant said the injury occurred when he was hit in the back after catching a screen pass in the first quarter last week.

"It's good," Bryant said Friday. "It's just something I had to ease up. It's nothing major, nothing that I feel like will affect me in the long run, or throughout the season.

"I can roll. We were just watching the situation. Don't want to go out there and do anything crazy. We've got a long season."

Asked if he'll get a shot in his back before Sunday's game, Bryant responded: "We'll see. I don't know. No telling."
