If there was one preseason game Dez Bryant was looking forward to playing in this season, it was the final one against the Dolphins. He had been looking forward to that matchup ever since the controversy with Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland broke right after the draft over questions about his mother.
Bryant's status for that game is in doubt now that he has a high ankle sprain and it is sidelined for four-to-six weeks. The Cowboys are conseratively hoping he will be ready for the season opener against the Redskins.
However, sources close to Bryant say he's a fast healer and believe he will be ready much sooner than the opener. More pointedly, it's their wish that he be ready to go for the preseason final against Miami so he can take care of some unfinished business.
