Dez Bryant Player Overview

Bryant has dealt with a number of ailments the past two years: He’s battled foot, ankle, back, and knee injuries, which have caused him to miss 10 games the past two seasons (after stringing together 3 seasons of 16 games between 2012-2014). The Cowboys Pro Bowl WR declared himself “100%” healthy in OTAs this spring. That’s a contrast from his contract holdout in 2015, and multiple surgeries he endured last spring.
