Dez Bryant working on kick returns

IRVING -- We're not sure if this is a fulltime change, but wide receiver Dez Bryant was fielding kickoffs along with Akwasi Owusu-Ansah and Felix Jones during a windy practice on Thursday at Valley Ranch.

Other practice notes:

Sean Lissemore, the rookie defensive end, was on the first team kickoff unit, meaning he could make his NFL debut on Sunday vs. Jacksonville.

Terence Newman appears to be limited again in practice with a sore rib. While the rest of his teammates wore shoulder pads, Newman didn't have any. Newman was limited during Wednesday's practice as well.

Kyle Kosier (right ankle) and Montrae Holland (groin) also missed practice, though Kosier was working with associate team trainer Britt Brown doing some rehab work with the workout cords.
