Add Dez Bryant to the list of absences from Thursday’s preseason game in Seattle.
The Cowboys revealed on Tuesday morning that Bryant suffered a concussion during the team’s Monday morning practice. Neither Bryant nor Tyrone Crawford will play against the Seahawks, as both players have been evaluated for concussions within the last two days.
This setback will likely end Bryant’s preseason, given that starters typically don’t play in the final preseason game. But with 19 days until the Cowboys open the regular season, the All-Pro receiver will have ample time to recover. Bryant had been on a fantastic run of play during the Cowboys’ first two preseason games. During limited action against the Rams and Dolphins, he caught four passes for 74 yards and two touchdowns, the story all said. Bryant tweeted he'd be OK, but it's still worth monitoring.
