PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Despite the fact that Dez Bryant is still nursing back and finger injuries from last season, he’s been participating in the Cowboys organized team activities.  After his first 1,000-yard season, he’s working on getting completely healthy and in the best shape of his life. He’s still getting treatment on his back, which he hurt against the Redskins at the end of the year, but he said that injury and his surgically repaired finger won’t be issues this season. He’s participating in Organized Team Activities and training himself to be able “to run all day.”   “I hear coach talk about it all the time, and that’s one of my main goals,” Bryant said. “Staying on the Stairmaster, trying to increase my endurance as much as I can, just not thinking about tapping out, just being able to go every play 100 miles per hour.” As long as Bryant can stay healthy and stay focused he’s destined for an even better season in 2013.   Need NFL Tickets?
