LANDOVER, Md. — The first time wide receiver Dez Bryant played at FedEx Field he suffered broken ribs at the hands of linebacker London Fletcher and talked smack with and gained a level of respect from cornerback DeAngelo Hall.

It was Bryant’s first game in a Cowboys uniform because he missed the entire preseason with an ankle injury.

He caught eight passes for 56 yards and returned one punt for 11 yards in that loss.

Bryant returns today the healthiest he’s been in a while. He missed one game with a thigh contusion, suffered on a punt return in Week 1.

“To tell you truth what I remember from that game is walking out in the field,” Bryant said Friday. “I see LaRon Landry and I see DHall. DHall is running past me. LaRon Landry looking at me like he just wants to rip my head off. In my head, I’m like ‘I’m on the same field as DeAngelo Hall and LaRon Landry.'”

Bryant said he loves the one-on-one competition from cornerbacks. He had a fierce verbal affair with the New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis in Week 1. In his first meeting with the Redskins in Week 3, he had four catches for 63 yards, but there wasn’t as much trash talking.

“I’m excited about it,” Bryant said of the game. “I had to come back to reality a little bit. I had to get myself together and play. But I was excited to play against them in my first game. I used to watch them on TV and now I got to go against them. I can’t be too much of a fan.”
