Stephen Jones says Dez Bryant will be OK

Dez Bryant’s teammates reached out to him within the last week and while the team has not been in touch with the wide receiver yet, the Dallas Cowboys don’t seem overly concerned he will be too busy fending off bill collectors to play football.

Stephen Jones, the team’s vice president, said that Bryant should be OK after he takes care of the lawsuits that have popped up as a result of Bryant buying things that he hasn’t paid for yet. He’s also had the Mallrats 3 tryout at the NorthPark Center Mall.

“We feel good about Dez," Jones said, according to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram. “I know he’s had some challenges, but we think Dez will be ready to go.”

Bryant, of course, finished last season on injured reserve with a fractured fibula. So, hopefully he has been handling rehabilitation and staying in shape during the lockout to be ready to go as Jones predicts. The Cowboys better hope their first-round draft pick from last year is ready to improve upon what by all standards was a solid debut.
