A week after he was only able to bring in one reception in a narrow loss to the Giants, Bryant was involved early and often Sunday, notching just his third 100-yard game since 2014. He struggled to produce when matched up against Josh Norman, but he feasted on the rest of the Washington secondary and could have had an even bigger day if he could have come down with one of the two jump balls he was thrown near the goal line. With the Dallas offense moving quite efficiently with Dak Prescott at the helm-- and the newfound emphasis on feeding Bryant-- he could be in for another productive game in Week 3 at home against the Bears.
Bryant appeared to catch a nice touchdown pass in the second quarter, but the play was ultimately overturned via replay, as he bobbled the ball a bit in the back of the end zone. Dak Prescott didn't throw a touchdown pass but also didn't look bad, primarily using Jason Witten and Cole Beasley, who combined to catch 17 passes for 131 yards. It would be unwise to expect Bryant to be held down for too long, but next week's game at Washington represents a challenge, as the star wideout will likely square off against prized offseason acquisition Josh Norman.
Bryant (concussion) is not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Bryant only missed a few days of practice after suffering a concussion more than two weeks ago. This merely confirms that he's fine for Week 1 against the Giants, though it remains to be seen how he'll fare with rookie Dak Prescott under center.
Bryant suffered a concussion during Monday's practice and has been sidelined for nearly a week now. He'll be back on the practice field Sunday, but will be limited to individual work, while being held out of team drills. It appears Bryant is nearing a full return, which means he should be good to go for the team's regular season opener. However, there's a good chance he's held out of the
Bryant has looked sharp in two preseason contests, so missing the third game shouldn't be a major worry. His concussion isn't thought to put his status for the regular season in question, but as with any concussion, that outlook could quickly change.
