Dez Bryant Jersey future remains in doubt but decision could come sooner than later
April 14, 2018
When asked about Dez Bryant on Sunday night, Jason Garrett, La’el Collins and Travis Frederick all had the same line: He’s on our football team.
Yes, he is, but for how long? That remains a question that perhaps only Jerry Jones can answer.
And the 76ers have been without Joel Embiid, who averages a team-leading 22.9 points and 11 rebounds but has missed the last six games.

Brown said Embiid, out with a fractured orbital bone after a collision with teammate Markelle Fultz, might resume conditioning and shooting as soon as Monday. That could mean a return for the playoffs.

The 76ers are a deep scoring team, with seven players averaging double figures. J.J. Redick (17 points), Ben Simmons (16 points, 8.1 rebounds) and Robert Covington (12.8 points, 5.4 rebounds) have stepped up to pick up the slack since Embiid’s injury.
Atlanta (24-57) defeated Boston on Sunday, but it remains in last place in the East. The Hawks, beset by injuries in a rebuilding season, have the third-worst record in the NBA.
The addition of veterans Marco Belinelli and Ersan Ilyasova, both dumped by Garrett Grayson Womens Jersey the Hawks in midseason, has solidified the rotation.
This shows how far we’ve come this season, Simmons said. Everyone was putting us lower than expected. I think we pushed through the times. We had a tough start with the teams we’ve played. I think we got better over time.
Garrett said he has not met with the receiver and doesn’t know if Jones has. But it sounds as if a decision is coming and soon.
The Cowboys begin their offseason program April 16, and that seems a logical deadline considering any season-ending injury occurring on team premises would guarantee his $12.5 million salary. It also makes sense that Bryant would want to know his status sooner than later.
