Cowboys VP: Dez Bryant could return after Week 6 bye

A Dez Bryant return might not be too far in the future for the Dallas Cowboys.

Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones said Monday that Dez Bryant has a "real shot" of playing after the team's Week 6 bye following a positive examination of his surgically repaired foot.

"There's been no setbacks," Jones told KRLD-AM in Dallas (via The Dallas Morning News).

Bryant suffered a broken foot in Dallas' season-opening win over the Giants. Reports about Bryant's recovery time have varied greatly. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported last month that Bryant could miss between 10-12 weeks.

If he returns in Week 7 against the Giants, Bryant will beat that projection by half. A weapons-light Cowboys offense could certainly use him.
