Football Roundup-Dez Cuts Hand, Myles Garrett Heals Up

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was on the practice field Wednesday for the Cowboys' lone practice of the bye week, but he did not catch any passes, sporting a bandage on his right hand. After the practice, Bryant said he cut the middle and ring fingers on his right hand while cutting carrots for some soup, but called the injury "extremely, extremely minor," and that he would be at full speed when practices resumed next week.

(AP) Myles Garrett isn’t about to tip his hand. Not with top-ranked Alabama next on the schedule.

The sixth-ranked Aggies’ star defensive end said he felt much better Tuesday following Texas A&M’s week off after admitting to being only 65-70 percent healthy against Tennessee. Garrett is dealing with an unspecified leg injury.

He broke into a huge smile when asked for an update.

“Well I can’t let them know,” he said. “I’m good enough to play well.”

The Aggies (6-0) will need him and the rest of their star players to be at full strength as they put their undefeated record on the line on Saturday against the Crimson Tide (7-0), the Southeastern Conference’s other unbeaten team.

Garrett and fellow defensive end Daeshon Hall have formed a dangerous combination this year with nine tackles for losses each, helping the Aggies rank third in the nation with 9.7 a game.
