Craig Watkins, the Dallas County DA, told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas that his office was still deciding "the proper way" to proceed with the charges against Bryant.
Bryant was arrested in July on domestic violence charges after reportedly pushing his own mother; it wasn't the first off-field incident involving the talented wide receiver since Dallas drafted him in the first round in 2010, though it was the first arrest for the wideout.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the team "will move on" if Bryant didn't shape up. Since the incident, Bryant's faced some criticism for his on-field play (namely on a two-point conversion) but he's been a pretty model citizen.
Bryant said Wednesday that the district attorney's claim was "not true" after having spoken to his lawyer.
His attorney, Royce West, told Watkins that if the charges hadn't been dropped, Bryant's side would "move forward" as necessary.
"If indeed the district attorney's office said it's true, we'll move forward with the case through the criminal justice system," West said. "I'm never surprised by anything. I've been in law for over 30 years. If the DA thinks it has probable cause, we'll go from there."
