Recent CT scan shows Dez Bryant fracture healing fine

FRISCO, Texas -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had a CT scan last Friday that showed the tibial plateau fracture in his right leg is healing well, but the team opted to keep Bryant out of Sunday’s win against the Green Bay Packers.
Bryant went through three limited practices last week, his first on-field action since suffering the injury Sept. 25 against the Chicago Bears. The risk of re-injury was too great, so the Cowboys opted to rest Bryant another week.
After Sunday's game, Bryant said he would return Oct. 30 against the Philadelphia Eagles after the Cowboys' bye week.
The Cowboys will have only an abbreviated practice on Wednesday before heading into their bye week with the league-mandated four straight days off. They will return to practice Oct. 24.
Bryant went through his most extensive pregame warmup since getting hurt prior to the Packers game. Bryant said the limited practice time last week coupled with the extra rest this week will allow him to be in better shape to face the Eagles.
“It’s going to be extremely great,” Bryant said after Sunday's game. “I’m extremely happy, but at the same time this moment ain’t about me right now. It’s about this win that we just got. Extremely happy, but yeah, I’m going to be ready to roll Sunday night.”
