Dallas Cowboys rookie cornerback Bryan McCann said he will return kickoffs and punts on Sunday versus Philadelphia with Dez Bryant out of action. McCann has been returning kickoffs and backing up Bryant on punt returns. Kevin Ogletree will also be an option on kickoff returns, and Terence Newman will be the No. 2 punt returner.
McCann scored on a 97-yard punt return against Detroit, but fumbled on kickoff returns against Green Bay (Packers returned for touchdown) and Indianapolis (recovered by Cowboys) with 29 seconds left in the fourth quarter.
McCann said this will be the first time he's done both since high school. He returned only kickoffs at SMU.
This is worth noting if you are using the Dallas defense. The Cowboys have a rough matchup this week with Philadelphia, but are worth adding for the fantasy playoffs as they'll draw Washington and Arizona after their tilt with the Eagles.
