Dez Bryant could return to the scene of the crime on Sunday.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett did not rule Bryant out for the team’s Week 6 tilt on the road against the Green Bay Packers, per the Dallas Morning News.
Lambeau Field is the location where Bryant has a painful memory. Bryant was part of a controversial call when officials ruled that he didn’t maintain possession of the football throughout the duration of the play in the 2014 NFC Divisional Playoff matchup versus the Packers.
The Cowboys No. 1 wide receiver could make amends on Sunday.
Garrett told reports that Bryant is moving around much better. Yet the coach did specify that the receiver is still day to day.
Bryant sustained a hairline fracture in his right knee in the team’s Week 3 win over the Chicago Bears. The receiver hasn’t played since suffering the injury.
Bryant has 11 catches for 150 yards and one touchdown in three games this year.
Wide receivers Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley have helped pick up the slack in Bryant’s absence. Dallas’ aerial attacks ranks 15th in the league despite not having Bryant for two games. Much of the success revolves around breakout rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and stout rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott. The two rookies have led Dallas to a surprising 4-1 start.
