Dez Bryant is returning to the field for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and it appears that no one is happier than quarterback Dak Prescott.
“Best receiver in the NFL in my eyes,” Precott said via The Dallas Morning News’ Jon Machota. “He’s freakish. Just throw it near him. Just throw it within five yards of him, and he’ll make the catch.”
Bryant felt that he was able to return to the field against the Green Bay Packers two weeks ago, but trainer Britt Brown told him to wait until after the bye week.
“Based on how I feel right now, it was an outstanding call,” Bryant said to Machota. “A lot of credit goes to him. I feel damn good.”
Bryant hasn’t seen the field since suffering a hairline fracture in his kneecap during the Cowboys’ early season victory against the Chicago Bears. It appeared that the team was in serious trouble with quarterback Tony Romo out, and many starters on defense not on the field as well.
It hasn’t mattered. Dallas hasn’t lost a game since its season opener against the New York Giants.
This weekend’s game will be test for everyone on the Cowboys. They will take on the Philadelphia Eagles, that just beat the undefeated Minnesota Vikings.
