OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Cowboys rookie receiver and former Lufkin Panther Dez Bryant is on track to play the final two preseason games.
Team owner Jerry Jones said so Saturday morning, before the team's first workout in California.
Bryant sprained his right ankle during a July 30 practice. He was expected to miss four to six weeks, which could've wiped out his chances of playing in the preseason.
But Jones said Saturday that Bryant's recovery is coming along well and that he is "hopeful we will have him back for those last two preseason games." That means the first-round pick could be in action Aug. 28 at Houston or Sept. 2 at home against Miami.
