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.

Although Bryant worked alone to the side of his teammates, the mere sight of the star receiver kitted up and running unaided is an instant confidence boost considering his long injury layoff.

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

Despite Bryant failing to reach anywhere near top speed in the individual workout, the footage has still raised hopes amongst Cowboys fans on Twitter that their star man can return to the field on Sunday for the first time since week one.


Dallas head coach Jason Garrett, speaking yesterday, said that he wants to see the WR make "football moves" in practice before he is convinced Bryant is ready to return from the broken foot that has sidelined him for six weeks.

The Cowboys are desperate for a win against the Giants this weekend to kickstart their season, but rushing Dez Bryant back onto the field before he is ready is a surefire way to ruin hopes of a productive 2015 campaign.

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