Dez Says 'Nothing Is Going To Keep Me Out' Of Sunday's Game


IRVING, Texas - Dez Bryant seemed pretty honest about a couple of things when he met with the media Thursday at Valley Ranch.

The right shoulder injury that kept him out of practice on Wednesday remains "a little bit sore" after returning to the field on Thursday.

But, he also had some choice words regarding another day this week.

"I'll be ready to roll on Sunday," Bryant said. "Nothing is going to keep me out."

The Cowboys kept him out of most drills Wednesday, but Bryant wanted to get back on the field Thursday, despite the fact that he wasn't 100 percent.

"I love it. I love what I do. I just like to try things out," Bryant said. "I knew it was sore, but I wanted to catch the ball anyway. So, I did."

Bryant suffered the injury early in Sunday's 26-10 win over the Titans and even had to make a short trip to the locker room. He returned quickly and eventually led the team with 10 catches for 103 yards and a third-quarter touchdown. [embedded_ad]

The fact that he was able to practice some Thursday, a full 72 hours before Sunday's kickoff in St. Louis, gives Bryant the confidence he'll be fine for the game.

"I'm doing a lot already. It's still sore," Bryant said while he lifted his arms in the air to show the reporters he has full range of motion. "The good thing about that is it's still Thursday and we play Sunday. I'm going to get some treatment and try to get this thing ready."

Regardless of the pain or discomfort come Sunday, Bryant said he won't change his aggressive style of play.

"Not at all – I'm not going to adjust the way I play, that's how I play," Bryant said. "I'm going to go out there and have fun."

In two career games against the Rams, Bryant is averaging seven receptions, 56 yards and a touchdown.
