With Bryant out, Cowboys still have options

Chip Kelly can only guess how the Dallas Cowboys are going to attack the Eagles this Sunday without superstar receiver Dez Bryant, out with a broken foot.

It beats the alternative.

If the choice is playing the Cowboys with Bryant as opposed to preparing for their NFC East arch-rivals without him, Kelly would take “the latter.

“He’s really good,” Kelly said of Bryant, the media tent bursting into laughter. “So, put a little bit more on the coaches and a little bit less on covering Dez, I think we’d opt for that.”

The Cowboys have options without Bryant, who likely will be sidelined four to six weeks after undergoing surgery.

Tight end Jason Witten (6-6, 251), wide receivers Terrance Williams and Cole Beasley, along with tight end Gavin Esobar (6-6, 254) are at the disposal of quarterback Tony Romo.

In Kelly’s mind, Romo is the key.

“One of the best quarterbacks in the league running the show,” Kelly said. “What a dynamic football player Dez is but it’s not like there’s a huge discrepancy. The key to that offense is the quarterback.”
