Dez Bryant Sits Out Thursday's OTA With Hamstring Injury

After missing Wednesday's session, but planning to be available for Thursday, Dez Bryant seemed as healthy as he needs to be at this point in the offseason.

Bryant was scratched from Thursday's practice as well, however, according to the Dallas Morning News' Todd Archer.

The Cowboys concluded their final organized team activity of the off-season on Thursday and Dez Bryant was again unable to practice because of a hamstring injury.

Bryant did not take part in team drills on Tuesday and missed the last two days to receive treatment and do some rehab on his leg. That's four missed practices for the rookie wide receiver. He missed one session because of food poisoning.

While the Cowboys have no need to overwork Bryant in July, Archer does find it a bit troubling he's missed so many practices.

We have all seen how it takes rookie wide receivers time to get used to life in the NFL and Bryant missing even a little bit of practice time in the off-season cannot be considered a good thing.

The Cowboys will have a three-day mini-camp this weekend, though Bryant's status hasn't been confirmed.
