With the Dallas Cowboys suddenly finding ways to win games and in the thick of the NFC playoff hunt, Dez Bryant isn’t going to back out now.
Despite a broken finger that will require surgery to correct, Bryant declared he will play Sunday when the Cowboys (7-6) host the Pittsburgh Steelers. Dallas is in a tie with the Washington Redskins for second place in the NFC East and just a game back of the New York Giants. The Giants have a difficult road game at Atlanta.
“Only thing y’all need to know is I’m playing,” Bryant said as he walked onto the practice field Thursday, the Dallas Morning News reported.
Teammates said Bryant, who has a special brace for the injured hand, looked good catching passes in practice. Stay tuned.
