According to Tim MacMahon of ESPNDallas.com, Dez Bryant’s back may prevent him from participating in the Cowboys’ OTA’s this offseason.
Bryant injured his back during the Cowboys’ week 17 loss to the Redskins and has been dealing with it since then.
The Cowboys finished 8-8 and lost the regular-season finale with the NFC East title at stake for the second consecutive season. A lower- back injury forced Bryant to leave the season-ending loss to the Washington Redskins and has kept him from running routes this offseason and might prevent him from being ready to fully participate in organized team activities this offseason.
Bryant, who needed a wheelchair to leave FedEx Field that night, said it took him a week to emotionally get over the loss to the Redskins. He has used that feeling as fuel this offseason, when he’s been able to lift weights, run straight ahead and catch passes since the cast was removed from his hand.
