Injured rookie receiver Dez Bryant is hoping to get on the field for Aug. 28 preseason game against the Texans but he definitely wants to be on the field for the preseason final against the Dolphins Sept. 1.
Bryant, however, said it has nothing to do with the pre-draft controversy starting by Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland when he insulted Bryant by asking him "if his mother was a prostitute" during predraft interviews.
Bryant said all that is in the past and he wants to play for football reasons only. He has been sidelined since the first week of camp with a high ankle sprain and wants to get some game action before the season opener.
"That has nothing to do with it at all," Bryant said. "That there is in the past. It's strictly football, that's all it's about. Me going to that last game has nothing to do with that last game. I pretty sure if I was to see him on the field I would shake his hand, shake coach Sparano's hand, everything is good. Just a lot of misunderstanding in that situation. Everything is fine."
