Some of the excitement lost?

From their first playoff win in over a decade, to the draft, and now to the start of training camp, there has been a ton of hype going into next season for the Dallas Cowboys.

None more than with the addition of Dez Bryant, the coveted wide receiver out of Oklahoma State, the Cowboys selected with the 24th overall pick in the first round of this year’s draft. Bryant looked to be very worth the pick during the first week of training camp and the offense seemed geared for another top 5 seasons in production. Save for the slight stint with Dez deciding that he would not carry the pads of incumbent Roy E. Williams, there was an overall giddiness as the first game of preseason approached.

This all unfortunately came apart when Bryant tweaked his ankle and had to be helped off the field. Bryant twisted his right ankle and is now estimated to be out for around 4-6 weeks.

A lot of the hype and hope behind Bryant emerging as the clear number 2 receiver to Miles Austin is gone with Bryant being out until probably the regular season, and little is left to discern if he is clearly ready to start or not.

Most of those answers were supposed to be answered during the preseason where fans and coaches would be able to get a taste of what might be a great receiving duo to come. Now it seems a lot of the anticipation has dwindled. There is no doubt that there will still be excitement for fans to see the Cowboys debut for the new season with Super Bowl aspirations.

However, with the debut of Dez Bryant being delayed it will seem a bit lackluster without the young star making his first NFL appearance.  I guess we’ll just have to wait a little longer to see what Bryant can do.
