Dez Bryant a return option against Redskins, too

Receiver Dez Bryant didn't want to return punts the last two games because of the depth issues at receiver with Miles Austin sidelined with a hamstring injury. 
But that may change this week as Bryant has worked on kickoff and punt returns in practice. He said he is a possibility for both.
"I might be doing it," Bryant said. "We'll see."
Bryant understands that the Cowboys don't want to chance him to injury especially since they are already playing without Austin. But he says he may have to go do some lobbying to coach Jason Garrett.
"I think I am this week cause I'm feeling it,"  Bryant said. 
Bryant was lost for the season on a kickoff return against Indianapolis last season when he fractured his right fibula. He has not returned a kickoff this season. He has four punt returns for 27 yards with a long of 12 this season after averaging 14.3 yards a return with two touchdowns on 15 punt returns last season.
