Asked if Dez Bryant is sharp coming out of the gate, Miles Austin agreed.
“He’s sharp coming out of the gate.”
Austin smiled. He was kidding the reporter who asked, but how could he not agree?
Bryant looked as good as anyone in camp through the first two days in Oxnard, despite an arrest for a misdemeanor assault in DeSoto in July shortly before training camp. That matter remains unsettled, but on the field, Bryant is putting in good work.
“He knows he’s on top of his stuff,” Austin said. “He’s working hard, catching balls, on top of his assignments. Just overall, generally working hard. That’s what all the coaches are looking for. That’s what our job is.”
Asked how he himself is doing, Austin said, “I’m fired up. Trying to do what I can to help this team in any way that I can. Just trying to stay focused on what I need to do each day, help out the younger guys when I can and learn from them, from things they do right or wrong.”
