Dez Bryant injury: Cowboys receiver moving 'slow'

Kyle Rivas

The Dallas Cowboys have injury concerns about the team's top receiver for Week 3.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver is dealing with a back injury this week, days away from a Week 3 game with the St. Louis Rams. He returned to practice on Thursday, but reports out of Valley Ranch say that the receiver is moving "slow and deliberate" and looking "stiff" in practice.

It's not expected to keep him out of action this week. However, it could be a factor in the game if he's at all limited by the injury. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo is expecting him to play too.

"Yeah, I expect him to play," Romo said. "Hopefully, he continues to get better. You never know how that's going to go. We'll see."

The Rams have struggled with No. 1 receivers through two games this season. Larry Fitzgerald had 80 yards and two touchdowns on eight reception in Week 1. Last week, the Rams were torched by Julio Jones caught 11 passes for 182 yards and a touchdown. That was the best receiving performance against the Rams since Andre Johnson burned the team for 196 yards in 2009.

Jeff Fisher promised Wednesday that his team was working on the pass defense, which has struggled to start the season.

"We're working technique," he said. "We're working fundamentals. We're working communication. We're working scheme. We're doing everything."
