Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant got a reprieve from his midnight curfew Friday night. Bryant was given a strict set of guidelines by the Cowboys to follow after a domestic violence arrest involving his mother over the summer. ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins writes Bryant was cleared to be out past midnight Saturday morning to celebrate his birthday.
"He had a security person there with him and some of his teammates were there too," (Bryant's adviser David) Wells said Saturday morning before leaving for Atlanta, where the Cowboys play the Falcons on Sunday night.
A photo was posted on Twitter showing Bryant with former Mavericks guards Delonte West and Josh Howard at a Dallas nightclub. Wells said Bryant was on time for the Saturday morning walkthrough before the team left for Atlanta.
Bryant has been limited in practice all week due to a hip injury. It's been an up and down year for the third-year receiver. On the bright side, he has 41 catches for 488 yards on the season, but has also had several untimely dropped passes and turnovers. He's listed as questionable for the Cowboys' Sunday night game against the Falcons.
