The Dallas Cowboys have one of the best young wide receivers in the game today.

But wide receiver Dez Bryant has been dealing with a back injury. And on November 7th, the Cowboys came out and said that they do not believe that there’s nothing structurally wrong with Bryant’s back.

Yet, Bryant has been dealing with back issues for the past several years. He also left FedEx Field after the Cowboys Week 17 regular season finale loss against the Washington Redskins in a wheelchair.

The Cowboys said if this issue continues to go on, then they would be worried about his future, but they are not immediately worried about his future. Yet, according to, they are reporting that sources close to the Cowboys fear that Bryant’s back issue could be a bulging disc or a herniated disc.

Early this morning, they have reported, according to sources, that the “measures being taken to treat the ailment go far beyond precautionary.” Right now, the team is considering more as routine soreness or back spasms.

But he is expected to play against the New Orleans Saints this weekend. However, while he would be out there on the field, it is very likely that he will be out there at less than a 100 percent.

The Cowboys could make one more update on his status later today after practice. He did practice on a limited basis on Thursday.

“It’s bothering him a little bit off and on,” said coach Jason Garrett. “I don’t know if it’s the exact same thing, but we don’t think it’s a significant deal.”
