Head coach Jason Garrett noted Wednesday that
Bryant was unable to catch, though, following a faux pas in the kitchen. According to Jane Slater of NFL Network, Bryant had bandages on the middle and index fingers of his right hand due to cuts made while slicing carrots for soup. Really. Bryant himself told Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the issue is minor, and with a Week 7 bye on tap, the wide receiver will continue to rehab his right knee with an aim for active status the next weekend against the Eagles.
Bryant has been sidelined since suffering a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee in Week 3 but returned as a limited practice participant last week. That resulted in a questionable tag prior to Sunday's absence versus the Packers, but Bryant made a point of revealing that he'll be back in action after Dallas' current bye week. While his status should be updated once the Cowboys reconvene, Bryant could conceivably be upgraded to a full participant in the buildup to Week 8's game against the Eagles, which would only serve to boost an already-impressive Cowboys offense.
Bryant (knee) is inactive for Sunday's game in Green Bay, Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
According to Ed Werder of ESPN, Bryant wasn't able to show the requisite progress in practice this week with his right knee. A bye week is upcoming for the Cowboys, which should allow Bryant enough time to achieve a modicum of health. In his stead, an active Terrance Williams (shoulder) will vie with Cole Beasley and Jason Witten (chest) for the attention of Dak Prescott.
Bryant (knee) will be a game-time decision Sunday against the Packers, though he is unlikely to play, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network
Bryant went through a few limited practices this week, and while he is progressing in his recovery, he is more likely to sit out Sunday and return in Week 8 against the Eagles following the Cowboys' bye.
Bryant (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game in Green Bay, ESPN's Todd Archer reports.
Bryant was also listed as questionable for the past two games, but this time he may actually have a chance to play, after logging limited practices throughout the week. According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Bryant displayed noticeable progress at Friday's practice, running without a limp and not needing a wrap over this injured knee. However, the wideout was still very limited in the extent of his participation, likely just doing individual work at less than full speed. Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News thinks the Cowboys will play it safe and hold Bryant out until after their Week 7 bye, which seems to be the prevailing thought among the team's beat reporters, including Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News and ESPN's Todd Archer.
