Injuries limited Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant in 2015, and this season isn’t off to a better start.
Bryant will miss the Cowboys’ preseason game Thursday night against the Seattle Seahawks, as he recovers from a concussion, according to multiple reports.
Bryant, who played in just nine games last season, suffered the injury in practice Monday, and it’s still unclear how much time he’ll miss.
Foot and ankle injuries slowed Bryant in 2015, limiting him to just the nine games, and he was relatively ineffective during his time on the field. Bryant caught just 31 passes (on 72 targets) for 401 yards and three touchdowns.
It was a big drop-off from recent seasons, as Bryant established himself as one of the NFL’s best receivers. In the three seasons prior to 2015, the 27-year-old averaged 91 catches and 14 touchdowns per season, including a league-high 16 scores in 2015.
Perhaps most disappointing for the Cowboys and Bryant is how good he has looked in limited action this preseason. In the Cowboys’ two preseason games, Bryant has four catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns.
For what it’s worth, however, Bryant claims he’s all right.
