Cowboys rookie receiver Dez Bryant was sent home from practice Tuesday because of "food poisoning", according to team sources.
Bryant didn't feel well during OTA practices because of something he ate Monday night. He was told to come in to see the trainers.
He "was dehydrated and weak," the source said, "so we sent him home. He is fine. He should be at practice (Wednesday)."
Bryant was picked in the first round of the 2010 draft. He is expected to compete with Roy Wiliams for a starting spot and at least be the team's third receiver as well as the primary punt returner.
Bryant's is getting even more reps in OTA practices because of the absence veteran receiver Patrick Crayton, who is staying away from all volunteer workouts in hopes of getting traded.
