Bryant said hip pointer is 'nothing'

Yes, Cowboys rookie wide receiver Dez Bryant has a slight hip pointer, but it's not serious enough to concern the Cowboys.

Bryant said he didn't have any treatment at Valley Ranch for the hip because it's not something that could keep him off the field.

"No, it's nothing," Bryant said. "It's just aches and pains of working out."

In fact, Bryant played in a charity basketball game on Wednesday night at a local high school. Bryant participated in OTAs twice this week, he left practice early on Tuesday because of a stomach virus.

"It's not major," Bryant's advisor David Wells said of the hip pointer. "You play through those things. Just like when he had the ankle sprain, you keep going. It's no big deal."

Bryant tweaked an ankle on the last day of the rookie minicamp earlier this month and team officials said then it was not something they were worried about, much like this hip pointer.

He didn't miss any offseason work due to the ankle and isn't expected to miss any time with the hip pointer.

The injury has surprised some, including veteran wide receiver Roy E. Williams who told Ben & Skin of 103.3 FM, "If he has a hip pointer, that's news to me. Please give me his hip pointer."
