As far as Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is concerned, receiver Dez Bryant shouldn’t return punts anymore. It’s too risky.
That the injury-prone Bryant returned two throughout Sunday’s 23-13 win over the Seahawks naturally made Jones feel uneasy.
“I’m still concerned when we had him back there about his injury, specifically now that Miles could be, or could not be, out a couple of games,” Jones stated, according to Fox Sports Southwest. “I don’t know.”
For the record, the Cowboys are, in fact, facing numerous weeks without having receiver Miles Austin simply because of a hamstring injury, per NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora. That only increases Bryant’s value to the offense, not to mention Jones’ stance on the receiver’s role.
Look, Jones has already publicly questioned coach Jason Garrett for his decisions when this season and later regretted it, so we wouldn’t expect Jones to go that route once again. But when he starts talking about his dislike of Bryant returning punts, it’s a secure bet that he’d like Garrett to heed his words.
The selection is yours, coach.
