Dez Bryant sore, but will be ready Sunday

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has minimal concern about the sore right shoulder that caused him to be a limited participant in Thursday’s practice.

“It’s a little bit sore, but nothing that’s going to keep me out,” Bryant said. “I’m going to be ready to roll on Sunday.”

Bryant injured the shoulder during the first quarter of Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans. He missed the next series but had eight of his team-high 10 receptions after returning.

Bryant did not participate in Wednesday’s practice. He took almost all of the first-team reps Thursday, but the Cowboys exercised caution in keeping him out of contact situations.

Asked if he had full range of motion, Bryant extended both arms above his head.

Bryant will get treatment throughout the week, but he said the shoulder will not impact his performance or his style of play Sunday against the St. Louis Rams.

“I’m not going to adjust the way that I play,” Bryant said, referring to his tendency to be physical with defensive backs and attempt to break tackles. “That’s how I play. I’m going to go out there and have fun.”

Linebacker Rolando McClain (groin), linebacker Justin Durant (groin), running back Joseph Randle (concussion) and defensive tackle Davon Coleman (calf) did not practice Thursday. Randle said Thursday afternoon that he has passed the league’s concussion protocol tests and expects to practice Friday.

Defensive end Anthony Spencer (knee) and tight end Gavin Escobar (knee) were limited Thursday. Spencer just did individual drills for a second consecutive day and will not be ready for game action until next week at the earliest.

Quarterback Tony Romo fully participated Thursday after sitting out Wednesday’s practice due to tightness in his surgically repaired back.
