Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Friday night he didn't speak with wide receiver Dez Bryant and blamed himself. Jones had said Thursday evening he would speak to Bryant on Friday about a variety of issues and expected the wide receiver to get looked at by the medical staff, but it didn't happen. Jones said he got too busy with the draft and labor issues and couldn't clear his schedule to speak with Bryant. Yet Jones defended Bryant for not being at Valley Ranch. "We had the good communication that I wanted to have," Jones said about his Thursday night conversation with Bryant. "It would have been redundant [to talk again Friday], that's why we did talk. We had a real good talk yesterday and that's where I like to leave it."
