IRVING, Texas "Dr. Jerry Jones'' is admitting he made the wrong diagnosis on the projected hip-to-finger bone graft for Dallas Cowboys standout receiver Dez Bryant. "Nobody touching my hip,'' said Bryant after Sunday's win over Pittsburgh, a game win which he played despite early-week concern that his fractured finger might end his season. "I'm telling you right now, you can get a piece of bone from somebody else. You're not touching my hip." And it turns out, Dez is right.

Time isn't right for Brent to be near Cowboys

In light of what happened Friday morning in Newtown, Conn., I had a tough time mustering too much indignation over Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent showing up on the sideline of a nationally televised game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Rob Ryan's bold moves help lead to victory

The Cowboys have had a very odd year with regards to their defense. So much so that at times you do just look at the personnel available and concede that to judge these players against a normal grading system is just unfair. Then, you admit that injuries happen all of the league and there are no sympathy cards arriving in the mailbox. You also see that you are in the middle of...
