Suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon says he's entering a rehab facility to "gain full control of my life".
The petition, filed Monday, echoes earlier complaints that the lead players' lawyers signed a quick deal with the National Football League in 2013 favoring their clients over thousands of others. The first part is true while the rest is a load.
Dez apparently suffered the injury on the second play of the Cowboys' victory against the Bears on Sunday night. He caught his first touchdown of the season in the fourth quarter of the 31-17 win. Initially the thought was that he would get the MRI Monday, but that was adjusted to Tuesday.
"Garrett had a blank stare when asked why he couldn"t share that information on Wednesday, and repeatedly pointed to Bryant"s "passion" as the reason for him no-showing the MRI exams. The 49ers are unlikely to be the club to test them if Blaine Gabbert continues to lead them and some believe this could be the week we see Colin Kaepernick do something besides protest the national anthem if Gabbert starts slow again.
"We're hopeful by the end of the week that he can do something", Garrett said.
Bryant declined interview requests by reporters on Thursday, but took to his Twitter account ([at sign] DezBryant) to express remorse for a situation that has spiraled out of control. "We've had players with this kind of injury who missed no time in the past, and other players who have missed up to a week, two [weeks] or more than that". For example, if the now less stable knee were to become displaced, it would require surgery that would put Bryant out for the season.
The Dallas Cowboys were 12-4 in 2014 and they were able do that well because they were able to run the ball. Luckily, the news wasn't too bad: a hairline fracture in his leg that he might be able to play through.
Dez isn't expected to practice today although Garrett keeps up the idea that he could practice tomorrow and play on Sunday.
"It doesn't. I go in and I don't really pay attention to who I'm throwing to", said Prescott.
I don't believe him either.
"If you think about it that way, a lot of bad stuff can happen". There is no replacement for that.
Dez Bryant has been a hot topic since hurting his right knee Sunday, with rumors swirling about how long he might be out. That's just who he is.
