    Dez Bryant claims he’s dealing with previously-undisclosed injury

    Dez Bryant claims he’s dealing with previously-undisclosed injury

    Another year, another player injury that previously had been hidden comes to light. And the league likely will do nothing about it.

    Via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant disclosed to reporters on Wednesday that he’s been dealing with an injury for weeks. Bryant said he was “surprised” no one knew about the injury, which has lingered since early November.

    Here’s why no one knew about the injury: The injury has never appeared on the injury report.

    The injury also didn’t appear on Wednesday’s injury report. Although Bryant has practiced and played every game, players who fully participate in practice despite an injury routinely are listed as having an injury.

    The next question is what will the league do about it? Based upon what the league did (more accurately, didn’t do) to the Seahawks last year for hiding a knee injury to Richard Sherman and to the Steelers last year for hiding a hernia suffered in the wild-card round by Le'Veon Bell, don’t expect anything to happen.

    Why does the league do nothing when a team violates the injury-reporting rules? Possibly because the league knows that they’d be sliding down a rabbit hole from which they’d never emerge, if they begin aggressively investigating and enforcing actual or suspended violations of the injury policy.

          Of course Jerry doesn't want to discuss it now. He will wait like he always does and it be well past when he should have.

            Random question I just now thought of while sitting on the toilet:

            If you could go back in time to 2010 and could control it, you still taking Dez in the draft?

              Who was on the board at the spot where he was chosen? Im sure we could find a suitable redo.

                Also... I remember when Denver to Demarius Thomas over Dez. I thought they made a huge mistake.

                Similarly, in 2002 I trolled the Pittsburgh Steelers ESPN boards for taking Randel El and letting Antonio Bryant fall to us.

                  Not much. Have to go to first half of second round and then you get Gronkowski. We wouldnt take him because of Witten, though.

                    Devin McCourty would have been a solid pick.

                      It was a good decision at the time. The only guestionable thing about him was his physic stemming from his mother. It was probably embedded in Dez more than anyone knew.

                        It wasn't a bad pick at that spot at the time considering he had some personal issues swirling around him. I may be wrong but I seem to remember some pundits considering him a top 15, top 10 pick without the baggage. It just seems as though he can't get through one season without some type of controversy.

                          Can't believe I'm saying this, but the personnel department has been crippled by their coaching staff the last 6 years.

                          Sure it hasn't been perfect, but they have made some really nice picks the last few years. Started making more team-friendly deals as well.

                          If they had a head coach that could do something with the talent, no telling what could have been.

                            The offensive team we fielded in 2016 was outrageously talented. Leave it to Garrett and Co. to underachieve.
