Jones outlines differences between analytical and critical

Although Jerry Jones was has been quoted saying that he thought Dez Bryant might have too large of a workload in practice with playing offense and receiving punts and kickoffs, Jones said today that he was not criticizing head coach Wade Phillips.

 “I'm not being critical,” Jones said. “What I'm being is analytical, or trying to be analytical. This is when you all sit down and look at everything you're doing and see if there's some things you can do to help protect your team better, especially during this time five-six  weeks away from the opening game.”

 Bryant, who was hurt on the next to the last play in practice Friday, will miss four to six weeks with a high ankle sprain. If he is out six weeks, he will miss the entire preseason.

 When the Cowboys drafted Bryant in the first round of the 2010 draft, Patrick Crayton skipped several non-mandatory practices and asked to be traded. Jones was asked if the Bryant injury guarantees Crayton will be on the team. 

 “I don't want to go there,” Jones said. “He's on the team. he's got a contract, and that's been my stance from the very beginning. He's there.”
