PLAYERS: Dez Bryant
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Getty Images Even though wide receiver Dez Bryant might be the most dangerous weapon on the Dallas Cowboys offense, owner/general manager Jerry Jones is willing to risk him getting injured returning punts this season. “I have no issue with us making business decisions relative to him returning punts,” Jones said. “What I do want him to do is to get enough repetitions so he can have a sense of fielding them and when to field them and when not to field them and make those kinds of judgments, but I like him back there to use him when we’ve got a long field or a chance for a return.” Last year Bryant suffered a deep thigh bruise on a punt return during the Cowboys’ week one loss to the Jets. I really don’t believe it’s worth it for the Cowboys to have Bryant returning punts with the lack of depth they have at the receiver position.  I would think there are other players on their roster that can also get the job done

Cowboys shooting us straight on Jenkins?

If you want a straight answer at Valley Ranch these days, just make sure you don't talk to more than one person.
