Garrett credits Bryant for doing an "amazing job" of playing with fractured finger

Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said receiver Dez Bryant has done “an amazing job” of persevering through his fractured left index finger, citing Sunday’s career-high 224 receiving yards against New Orleans as the latest example. Bryant, who leads the team in receiving yards (1,311) and touchdown catches (12), hopes to land his first Pro Bowl berth when the team is announced Wednesday.

“It doesn’t seem to faze him in any way, shape or form,” Garrett said of Bryant’s injury. “He’s playing with a great deal of confidence. He’s done an amazing job with that finger.”

Garrett said Bryant, who has caught touchdown passes in the team’s last seven games _ tying a franchise record _ clearly is in sync with quarterback Tony Romo after some early-season struggles in that department.

“He and Tony have a really, really good relationship,” Garrett said. “They’re seeing the field the same way. I think he’s grown. He’s been good. There’s no question about that.”
