Dez Bryant active for Cowboys


Neither hip injury nor dark of night will keep Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant from his appointed rounds, as he’s active for tonight’s game against the undefeated Falcons.

Bryant, who was questionable with a hip injury, made headlines yesterday by missing curfew, though his adviser said it was excused since he was celebrating his birthday.

The Cowboys will be without running back DeMarco Murray, along with center Phil Costa, linebacker Dan Connor safety Matt Johnson, defensive end Sean Lissemore, safety Charlie Peprah and wide receiver Andre Holmes.

The Falcons will be without perhaps their best defensive player, linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, out with an ankle injury. Also inactive for the Falcons are guard Garrett Reynolds, wide receiver Kevin Cone, quarterback Dominique Davis, tackle Lamar Holmes, defensive tackle Travian Robertson and defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi.
