IRVING, Texas – Dez Bryant was back on the practice field Thursday after missing Wednesday’s practice with a sore hip. As Bryant walked onto the field to participate in the stretches with the rest of the team, he still looked to be slightly favoring his right hip. However, Bryant had a helmet on, which implied that he would be a regular participant in the practice.
Bryant apparently hurt his hip after landing on it while catching the potential game-winning touchdown against the Giants, which was eventually overturned.
-Defensive lineman Jason Hatcher was back on the field today, this time with a helmet in hand. On Wednesday, Hatcher attended practice without a helmet or pads and was a non-participant after sustaining a bruised shin.
-Dan Connor appeared to be sitting out of practice on Thursday. He was on the practice field and participating in the team stretches, but didn’t have a helmet with him. Connor’s still recovering from a neck strain suffered against the Giants, and his status against the Falcons on Sunday is uncertain. Connor started last Sunday in place of the injured Sean Lee.
-Kevin Ogletree was on the field for the media portion of Thursday’s practice, but his level of participation isn’t certain. A hamstring problem held him out of Wednesday’s practice.
-Running back Felix Jones
was on the field, but he was limited yesterday and could be again today. The injury report Wednesday said Jones’ knee kept him limited, but head coach Jason Garrett said his shoulder’s also been bothering him. DeMarco Murray
wasn’t out at practice during the media portion.
