OXNARD, Calif. -- There was some good news on the Cowboys injury front on Monday.
Rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant, who has yet to play in a preseason game due to a right high-ankle sprain, did some running for the first time since suffering the injury in late July.
Bryant will not play this week and most likely won't return until the season opener, Sept. 12 at Washington.
"I wasn't disappointed when they told me about it," Bryant said regarding not playing in one of the last two preseason games. "I agreed with it. I just started running. I'm a rookie and I haven't been in a NFL game yet."
In that case, Hamlin and giard Montrae Holland will take over.
