One of the most interesting facts I picked up while watching Friday’s practice was the fact that Dez Bryant isn’t wearing any kind of brace on his surgically repaired knee.

Refuses to wear it, actually. We’ll see if that continues to be the case when he sees increased action in practice this week.

But even more interesting is that quarterback Zac Robinson does wear a brace on his left knee.

But no worries, it is nothing more than a safety measure. After seeing an injury like what happened to Tom Brady, with a lineman lunging at his feet resulting in a torn ACL, Robinson thought it might be safe to have some protection down there.

I think this is also experimental, so we’ll see if he keeps it on next fall and into the season. A guy who runs a lot and relies on his lateral agility in the pocket might not want that type of hindrance on his knee.
