Dez Bryant: I don't have problem securing the ball

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant doesn't believe he has an issue fumbling the ball.

Against the Giants on Sunday, Bryant fumbled a ball that Dallas was able to recover, albeit for a big loss. He's had two fumbles for the season, which ties for the season-worst with seven other receivers.

That said, two fumbles in 11 games isn't the end of the world.

However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently said that Bryant needs to do a better job securing the ball and that his running-after-the-catch style creates the ball to get away from his body.

Bryant disagreed with that notion when asked about it on Wednesday.

“It was just that kind of a game to where you have to be a little bit more prepared focusing on what kind of difficulties it will be in the cold weather handling the ball," Bryant said, via the Dallas Morning News. "You just got to prepare a little bit better knowing you will be in the game.”

Bryant finished Dallas' win over the Giants with nine catches for 102 receiving yards.
