Report: Cowboys Will Use Dez Bryant As Punt Returner

Tim McMahon quotes a source saying that Dez Bryant will return punts against the Cardinals Sunday.

There had been internal discussions about waiting until [Miles] Austin returned for next week’s game against the Giants to use Bryant as the primary punt returner, but the coaching staff has opted to use their most dynamic threat in that role this week.

While there certainly is some risk involved in this decision, it’s December. The Cowboys are in position to win their division and improve their late season reputation. It’s time to put your big guns in winning positions, and it looks like the Cowboys have decided to do so here.
