Dez Bryant questionable; Cowboys “less than optimistic” he plays

Wide receiver Dez Bryant participated in practice for the Cowboys this week after missing all the sessions in the previous two weeks, but that might not be enough to get him on the field against the Packers.

Bryant has been listed as questionable to play in Sunday’s game despite signs from the team that he’ll miss a third straight game with a hairline fracture in his knee. Owner Jerry Jones said Friday on 105.3 The Fan, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, that he is “less than optimistic” about Bryant’s chances of playing.

The Cowboys have a bye in Week Seven, which would offer Bryant extended time to continue recovering before the team hosts the Eagles on October 30.

Left tackle Tyron Smith is questionable with the back problem that caused him to miss two games before returning last Sunday. Smith said that he expects to play this weekend, which would keep the Cowboys from shuffling their line because backup Chaz Green remains out with a foot injury.

    My Packers will surely win this game and cement our second place position in our division.

    I’m so glad Sam Shields will not be covering this guy.

    I’d tell lavender troll Jeffrey that he needs to get a life, but I don’t do straight lines if I can help it.

    Using that line a second time will upset Frank some more, Jesse. He expects originality and humor here. He’s gonna turn traitor on you, too.

    ^^Sounds like Skins99 is still bitter about that punch in the face Dallas gave him week 2. Dont worry Skins99, we’re gonna ruin your whole thanksgiving too, hahaha. Hope you have insurance on your TV, bc you’re gonna be so upset you’re likely to put your foot through it

    It’s alright we gonna win without him. Zekes gonna break that defense down. #1 against the run, that’s because they haven’t faced a an o line like ours and the number 1 running back in the NFL. Expect Zeke early and often. Also Dak breaks Brady’s no interceptions to start of career record. Big win do for the boys.

    Just blowing smoke. Dez is healthy. Dez gets revenge. 31-17 Dallas.

    He didn’t catch it.

    What’s gonna happen when Dez comes back and realizes this teams identity doesn’t particularly rely on him?

    No Dez, No Romo, No Problem.

    Packer secondary can be beat with back ups…not a problem if he doens’t play…

    Dez is officially injury prone. He’s a great talent… but he cannot stay on the field. Some guys can, others can’t. Bryant’s one of the “others”.
