Cowboys Won't Remove Punt-Return Duties From WR Dez Bryant Just Yet
Dez Bryant’s days as a punt returner aren’t necessarily over. The wideout, who made a questionable decision to retrieve a punt, muffed the catch and then fumbled the ball away in the first quarter of the Cowboys’ loss to the Giants, may still handle that role.
“I don’t want to make any definitive statements about how we’re going to use guys,” head coach Jason Garrett said Monday. “Certainly, the play he had [Sunday] in the ballgame was not a good play for our football team.”
Bryant’s gaffe, which led to a Giants’ field goal, caused him to be pulled off his special teams duty before he was given the chance to field New York’s final punt. The turnover came one week after he made another reckless play that resulted in a three-yard loss against Carolina and prompted Garrett to express relief that the outcome wasn’t worse. This season, Bryant’s average of 5.5 yards per return is a career-low.
