With the Dallas Cowboys in the midst of a three-game losing streak, 'America's Team' are in need of a pick me up as they approach a crunch divisional game against the New York Giants this weekend.
And footage doing the rounds today showing Dez Bryant back catching balls on the Cowboys practice field has certainly given the NFC East team's fans reason to cheer today.

Mike Leslie of WFAA Channel 8 was amongst those reporters to post videos of number 88 getting back to work.

Even if he is making one-handed catches this week, a return in week eight may be more sensible all round.
