Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was as happy as anyone to see quarterback Tony Romo back at practice and gearing for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars.
Bryant has struggled the past two weeks catching just five passes in losses to the Redskins and Cardinals.
Part of that can be attributed to Romo going down against the Redskins with two fractures in his back, forcing him to miss last week’s game against the Cardinals.
“It always helps whenever Tony is out there,” Bryant said. “He’s our guy. He’s our leader. Whenever he’s out there, it makes everybody feel that much more comfortable, and he knows how to lead us in the right direction, and that’s what he’s going to do Sunday.”
Backup quarterback Brandon Weeden admittedly had his share of woes with accuracy and timing issues in Romo’s absence.
But Bryant hasn’t helped matters with four drops the past two games.
“Check this out: I can only control what I can control,” Bryant said. “You watch the same tape that I watch, and I’m going to keep on doing that and when it comes my way, I’m going to try to make the most out of it. We’re just going to continue to keep working on our mistakes, get the wrinkles out, and we’re going to get back together. Trust me, we’re fine. We’re fine. We are.”
