Bryant (foot) will be a full go July 28 when training camp begins, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though fully recovered from January surgery, Bryant has only been a partial participant at minicamp, with the Cowboys unsurprisingly opting for an abundance of caution. Bryant made an interesting admission Thursday, saying he doesn't think he worked hard enough last year, when he missed most of the team's offseason program due to a contract holdout. He now plans to significantly increase his activity level during the six weeks between minicamp and training camp, with his docket including some individual work with Tony Romo, who has already been cleared for all activities.

Bryant (foot) had an X-Ray performed on his foot Wednesday and has been given the green light to increase cutting and participation in football drills, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant is nearing a full return to the field, but is still expected to be a bit limited for the time being. The X-Rays indicated he's progressed enough in his rehab to allow him to increase his participation in football drills, but he's yet to be given full clearance for offseason practices. Bryant still appears to be on pace in regards to his full availability for training camp, but we'll have to wait for further updates on his status as the team's three-day mandatory minicamp nears on Jun. 14.

Bryant will have an X-ray in the next few weeks to determine if he'll receive full clearance to resume football activities, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Cowboys have relayed that Bryant is expected to be cleared for offseason practices in early June, but an X-ray appears to be the linchpin for the final decision. With OTAs taking place until their three-day mandatory minicamp commences on June 14, the organization will wait with bated breath for the news that Tony Romo's (back) No. 1 target is officially back in the fold.

Bryant (foot) is on track to be fully cleared for offseason practices in early June, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though recovering as expected, Bryant likely still needs a few weeks to regain full health. There doesn't seem to be any question about his availability for the start of training camp, as he'll be more than six months removed from his most recent surgery. Meanwhile, Tony Romo (collarbone) is expected to be a full participant at OTAs in late May.

Although head coach Jason Garrett said that Bryant is making "progress" in his recovery from surgery on his right foot, the wide receiver may not participate fully in mandatory minicamp in June, Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas reports. "Like with all those guys, it's a day-by-day, week-by-week thing," added Garrett. "But he's had no setbacks, but he really continues to get better and better."

EDGE Analysis

Plagued by foot problems stemming from a broken fifth metatarsal sustained in last season's opener, Bryant was contained to nine appearances and lacked the explosiveness previously exhibited throughout his career. Overall, he tallied 31 catches for 401 yards and three touchdowns, which marked career lows across the board, but the January procedure is expected to reestablish his top-tier stature. If he's unable to partake in the full array of drills at minicamp, there doesn't appear to be much question about his availability for the start of training camp.

Bryant's recovery from offseason foot surgery is proceeding on schedule, The Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports. "I'm doing good," Bryant said. "I've got a chip on my shoulder. It's going to be good."

EDGE Analysis

After breaking his foot in Week 1, Bryant was ineffective in his return to action following surgery and had a second procedure performed once the regular season was over. He missed basically the entire offseason and preseason last year due to a contract dispute and hamstring injury, but the Cowboys are expecting him to be recovered in time to part part in most or all of the team's offseason activities in 2016.

The Cowboys expect Bryant (foot) to be ready for the offseason program, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant is reportedly making good progress in his recovery from early-January surgery on his troublesome right foot/ankle. He may still be limited during OTAs and minicamp but should be back to full strength by the time training camp begins. With Tony Romo (collarbone) also expected to be healthy long before training camp, the entire Dallas passing game will be well positioned for a major bounce back.

Bryant has already begun rehabbing from his most recent foot and ankle surgeries, The Dallas Morning News reports. "We felt like the surgery went well and he's still getting back, it's still a process," Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said, "but we're glad we got it done almost immediately after the season so it's given him plenty of time to come back and all reports are that everything has been positive up to this point."

EDGE Analysis

With a full offseason to rehab and recover, Bryant is expected to be at 100 percent heading into next season and look more like the receiver who averaged 91 catches, 1312 yards and 14 TDs between 2012 and 2014 than the one who played in only nine ineffective games in 2015 due to a broken foot.

Bryant will undergo surgery on his foot and ankle Wednesday, the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

He'll get a bone graft in his foot to further strengthen the spot that he initially injured in Week 1, as well as having a bone spur removed from his ankle. With a full offseason to recover, Bryant is expected to participate in the Cowboys' OTAs beginning in April. The multiple injuries contributed to his worst season in the NFL in 2015, and Bryant finished the year with just 31 catches on 72 targets for 401 yards and three TDs in nine games.

Bryant (ankle/foot) is headed to IR, per coach Jason Garrett.

EDGE Analysis

As a result, Bryant will miss the Cowboys' regular season finale, with the report adding the star wideout is eventually slated to undergo surgery on his ankle and foot, with an eye toward being healthy in advance of the 2016 season. The wideout's frustrating 2015 campaign thus concludes with Bryant having recorded 31 catches for 401 yards and three TDs in nine games, all career-lows.
