Dez Bryant was in a good mood Thursday, joking, laughing, smiling.
“I’ve been in a good mood all week,” the Cowboys receiver said. “I just feel good, probably because I’m in shape. Feeling good. We work here. We work hard. Feeling good. Nothing different. Just feeling good.”
Bryant, 27, seems like himself again after a lost season in 2015. Never 100 percent last season because of ankle, knee and foot injuries, Bryant had only one 100-yard game.
He already has one this season, catching seven passes for 102 yards against the Redskins.
“It feels good, you know,” Bryant said. “Just going to go out there and continue to keep playing and just hope for the best. That’s not what I’m looking for. But it does feel good to execute plays.”
The Redskins’ All-Pro cornerback, Josh Norman, didn’t shadow Bryant until the second half after Bryant took advantage of Bashaud Breeland. Bryant expressed slight surprise at Norman not following him all over the field.
“Kinda, sorta, but it’s all good,” Bryant said. “We’ll see if we get that opportunity the next time we play them.”
