Cowboys' Dez Bryant sizes up WRs
Bryant bought the Cowboys' receiving corps pairs of Air Jordan Olympic 7s.
It was a goodwill gesture from the first-round pick, whose refusal to carry Roy Williams' shoulder pads at the beginning of training camp morphed into a media firestorm.
A day later, hours after coach Wade Phillips discussed the issue in a team meeting, Williams declared it no big deal but hinted that he'd run up a big bill when the rookie bought the receivers dinner.
Williams grinned Thursday night when asked about the shoes Bryant bought, saying he didn't get the right size.
"It's OK," Williams said lightheartedly. "My 15 didn't get in. I got a little bit more hungry, a little bit more thirsty."
After impressing coaches throughout summer practices and the beginning of training camp, Bryant suffered a high ankle sprain on the second-to-last play of practice July 31 at the Alamodome in San Antonio. He could miss the entire preseason.
