If Tony Romo’s back injury didn’t do enough to freak out Cowboys fans prior to the team’s must-win season finale against the Eagles, reports surfaced this week saying star wide receiver Dez Bryant was limited at practice also with a back issue.

Bryant caught some passes early in Thursday’s practice before undergoing treatment with the team’s trainers. But . . . he also said he has “no doubt” that he’ll play against the Eagles for the NFC East title.

Bryant is having a near-career season with a game to go in his fourth year, despite critics wondering why the team doesn’t look in his direction more often. He’ll enter the game against the Eagles with 85 reception for 1,134 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2013.

Dez was in the trainers room to ensure that the Cowboys had stocked up on Kleenex, of which he will have great need come Sunday night.  :)

@PhillyPenn how many Philly Penns does it take to count superbowl trophies?

@Tank @PhillyPenn You Cowboy fans...still bragging about your PAST super bowl victories because you don't have anything else to brag about. It's now 2013 (almost 2014) and all your super bowl wins will be nothing but a fading memory. That's ok....you all enjoy those past memories because you sure don't have much of a future to look forward to. Romo will never be the qb he once was (which was never much anyway) with his age and after 2 surgeries...your younger players aren't anything special, and you'll soon be looking for a new coach along with all the other losing teams. Go Eagles!

@Tank meh.  we've heard all the "no superbowl" jokes/taunts before and at this point they no longer have the intended effect
