Life Comes Next: Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant returns to practice
Wednesday October 28th, 2015

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is expected to take part in a practice for the first time in six weeks, according to ESPN's Todd Archer.

Bryant underwent surgery to repair a broken right foot on Sept. 14. In the team's season opener against the New York Giants, when he injured his foot, Bryant recorded five catches for 48 yards.

In late September, Ian Rapaport of reported that Bryant would miss 10 to 12 weeks, but the wide receiver said he thought that timeline was a stretch.

This injury marks the longest that Bryant has missed time with Cowboys. He was sidelined for the last four games of the 2010 season with a broken ankle, and he missed one game in 2011 due to a quadriceps bruise.

Bryant spent much of his off-season negotiating a new contract, before signing a five-year, $70 million extension in July. He finished last season as a Pro Bowl and first-team All-Pro selection after catching 88 passes for 1,320 yards and a league-high 16 touchdowns.

Bryant's availability for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks is still yet to be determined. The Cowboys (2–4) are 1–4 without Bryant this season.
