The Dallas Cowboys improved to 3-1 on Sunday after defeating the San Francisco 49ers despite not having star wide receiver Dez Bryant, who is out with a knee injury. The latest NFL rumors suggest that the Cowboys are not worried about Bryant’s injury but they are unhappy with his “irresponsible behavior.”
The 27-year-old WR missed the game against the 49ers due to a hairline knee fracture suffered in last week’s win against the Chicago Bears and he is expected to miss one to two weeks, per NFL.com. He subsequently missed a follow-up MRI on Monday and team meetings on Tuesday and Wednesday.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Dez Bryant has been showing some “irresponsible behavior” in recent weeks. He has been improving his attitude as of late but he is still being late on meetings which have been a problem in his time in Dallas.
“They said the wide receiver has shown improvement at times, but he has been tardy or missing at least 20 times and possibly as many as 40 times during his seven-year Dallas career,” Schefter noted.
“If you were hoping for him to come to a scheduled meeting, he may or may not be there, but if you need a first down on third-and-14, throw it to Dez,” one Cowboys player added.
Additionally, one source in the Cowboys organization says the team continues to fine Dez Bryant for bad behavior. However, they fail to help him prolong his career by not doing anything about his lack of sleep and poor eating habits.
Nevertheless, these are just NFL rumors at the moment and should be taken with a grain of salt. Dez Bryant has already explained his behavior last week while also refuting the report made by Adam Schefter.
