Dez Bryant hurt; Cowboys Injury list grows

The Dallas Cowboys injuries keep piling up. Add wide receiver Dez Bryant to the list of Cowboys players currently on the injury list. Dez Bryant’s hamstring tightened during the middle of the team drills.

“I’m fine,” Bryant said as he walked off the field.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said if there was any “sensitivity” to further injury then Bryant would not see the field against the Raiders.

Injury List

WR Miles Austin – Was held out of the end of Saturday’s  practice after tweaking his hamstring. Stephen Jones said the team is not concerned, but he missed six games last year with hamstring injuries, not to mention most of training camp.

RB Lance Dunbar– Sat on the sidelines without pads during team drills Saturday with a tight hamstring. Dunbar said “I can’t afford to miss any preseason games.”

TE John Phillips– Midway through Saturday’s practice, he limped into the locker room with an ankle injury. Jones said he doesn’t anticipate the club signing a new tight end right now.

DE Marcus Spears– Team doctors administered a concussion test during Saturday’s practice. after leaving the field, Spears said: “I’ll see in the morning how I feel.”

CB Morris Claiborne– Sprained his MCL during practice Wednesday. He tried to play through it Friday, but left before team drills and had an MRI. Claiborne said he should be ready in a week.

G Mackenzy Bernadeau – Passed his physical and was taken off PUP on Saturday. Has yet to practice once with the club because of hip surgery he underwent soon after signing as a free agent in March. He is also working back from a minor knee scope late in the offseason.

WR Danny Coale – Moved off PUP on Saturday after passing physical. NFLPA rules state players still must sit out three days, so because of Wednesday’s off day, his first practice should be Thursday.

RB Phillip Tanner– Will fly to Dallas for surgery on his right hand on Sunday, but may be able to return in a week or two.

WR Saalim Hakim – chipped a bone in his left ring finger on Friday and will go with Tanner to see a hand specialist on Sunday. He’ll miss roughly a week.

G Nate Livings– Sustained a hamstring injury that will sideline him for the scrimmage Sunday and possibly a day or two after that.

OLB Anthony Spencer– Sitting out with a hamstring injury he tweaked on Friday. Likely won’t play in the scrimmage and could miss a few days next week.

DE Jason Hatcher– Held out of Saturday’s practice with slight hamstring injury.

CB Mike Jenkins– Still not practicing because of shoulder injury that required surgery back in January. Could be two weeks away from returning, but seems to be making good progress in his conditioning.

FS Matt Johnson– Off the PUP list but hasn’t practiced with the team yet after recovering from a hamstring injury. He’s been mostly doing workouts with resistance cords on the sideline at practice.

SS Gerald Sensabaugh –First practice back in pads after being held out for knee injury. Underwent minor scope back in early July.

DE Tyrone Crawford – Returned to practice after missing some time Friday with a slight knee injury.

DT Jay Ratliff– The Cowboys are being overly cautious with his foot injury, diagnosed as plantar fasciitis. He’s gone through some of the walk-through practices, but it’s unlikely he will be turned loose anytime soon.

G Kevin Kowalski– Wearing a hard cast up to his knee although it’s diagnosed as an ankle injury. He is still on PUP and likely won’t get the chance to practice for another 2-3 weeks, if not longer.

G Bill Nagy– Suffered a high-ankle sprain early in camp and should miss 2-4 weeks. Wearing a walking boot.

  1. Hey don’t forget that their only center Phil Costa has a hurt back which means Arkin who has never played center may have to try it Monday night. I also read a tweet that Loper the guard they signed recently hurt his hand at practice today.
