Skip Bayless repeatedly teased a Dez Bryant segment on Undisputed. Speculation surrounding the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver’s absence at the team facility earlier this week, along with a missed MRI, has been prevalent. (His comments before and after Dez tweeted at him are above.)
Dez Bryant responded on Twitter:
Cowboys coach Jason Garrret attempted to clarify:
The delayed MRI revealed a hairline fracture in Bryant’s right knee, Jason Garrett said Tuesday. The team fined Bryant for missing team meetings and his scheduled medical test, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Bryant saw the teases and suggested Bayless should reach out to him for answers instead of debating the issue with Shannon Sharpe.
A high-profile athlete engaging with sports media’s most famous agitator will undoubtedly have the masses readying their microwave popcorn. Bayless is certainly not the only pundit filling that void with theory. While the mercurial wideout may be easy to reach, he’d not been forthcoming with information until his coach spoke for him.
