Bryant had surgery to repair a broken fifth metatarsal in his right foot on Sept. 14. Bryant had a bone graft accompanied by the screw inserted into his foot to help with the healing process. Less than two weeks ago Bryant had stem cells taken from his hip and injected into his foot to help make the bone “sounder,” according to owner general manager Jerry Jones.
Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas last week, executive vice president Stephen Jones said it is a possibility Bryant will play against New York, but “I don’t know if I would put the word ‘strong,’ in front of it.”
The story went on to say: for the first time since the surgery Bryant made an appearance on the practice field during the portion of practice open to the media last Thursday. He did not practice, but he went through resistance training. As he walked through the locker room after the session, Bryant did not promise he would be able play against the Giants. His only promise was that he was trying to get his foot, “right.” “He’s making progress,” coach Jason Garrett said. That’s a vague description. He will have to make more progress during the week as well. He will have to practice in order to play against the Giants.
