COLLEGE STATION, Texas-- With All-American Dez Bryant declared ineligible this week, the Cowboys relied upon some younger, less-experienced wide receivers.
“We’re excited about the young kids that really haven’t had the opportunity to do things,” said Gunter Brewer, co-offensive coordinator. “If you have a guy like a Dez Bryant, you’d be foolish not to throw it to a potential All-American.”
The Cowboys, however, were left without Bryant in Saturday’s Texas A&M match-up, after the NCAA ruled him ineligible for breaking a rule.

“When he’s not out there though, that means someone else has to pick up the slack, and today, we said we’d fill that hole that was left by him with several people,” Brewer said.
Running back Beau Johnson recorded two scores for the Cowboys, while running back Keith Toston had an impressive 130 yards. The Cowboys ultimately beat the Aggies, 36-31.

“The tight ends and the receivers joined together and prove to be pretty good today,” Brewer said.
The Cowboys will face Missouri in Stillwater next Saturday.
