Bryant has agreed to strict guidelines from team officials regarding his conduct away from the field. The guidelines Bryant agreed to took effect Aug. 23 when the team returned to Dallas after three weeks of training camp in California, sources told Watkins. Some of the rules Bryant must abide are as follows: A midnight curfew. If he's going to miss curfew, team officials must know in advance; no drinking alcohol; he can't attend any strip clubs and can only attend nightclubs if they are approved by the team and he has a security team with him; he must attend counseling sessions twice a week; a rotating three-man security team will leave one man with Bryant at all times; members of the security team will drive Bryant to practices, games and team functions.

The rules stem from a July 14 incident where Bryant was charged with allegedly assaulting his mother, Angela Bryant. Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor by the DeSoto Police Department. Bryant, who hasn't been made available to reporters during training camp, is out because of a knee injury, though he's expected to be ready for the regular season opener on Sept. 5. The Cowboys have a history of dealing with troubled players. Owner Jerry Jones said the team have placed restrictions on other players previously and when asked if this is the strictest of rules for a player he said, "No this is (not) the strictest at all. ..." For the record, HC Jason Garrett said Bryant has been outstanding in practices so far this preseason, and there have been no issues regarding him being late to meetings, practices or games.
