Before we slam Roddy White for running his mouth about business that doesn’t concern him, his star teammate had a similar injury, and he was just offering an assessment.
According to various reports, Dez Bryant is looking at a 4-6 week recovery, with some sources believing it’ll be an 8-11 week rehab.
Bryant called the talk “craziness.”
White said that he and teammate Julio Jones, who missed most of the 2013 season with a foot injury, compared Bryant’s injury to Jones’ while appearing on SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio on Tuesday.
“Me and Julio were talking about the whole situation and he was like, when he heard that he broke his foot he was like, ‘He’s got the same injury I got,'” White said via ESPN. “And, you know, we had to shut him [Julio] down for the whole entire year. So I just don’t see him making it back this year. Or if he does make it back it will probably be late in the playoffs, so it’ll probably be around January.”
“Anytime you are coming off a foot injury, you know, he’s not going to be running or anything like that,” White said. “It’ll be weeks before he can actually apply any kind of pressure onto it or even start walking around. So he’s got a long haul ahead of him, so he’s got to be patient with this thing. Plus he just signed a new contract so he’s got to be as patient as possible and just kind of take it easy.”
Bryant’s mega-deal makes it even more possible that Dallas takes their time as an organization, bringing him back.
