  • Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Sees 14 targets
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bryant secured eight of 14 targets for 63 yards during Sunday's 37-9 loss to the Cowboys. Quarterback Dak Prescott was seemingly under pressure all night, possibly due to the absence of 2016 All-Pro tackle Tyron Smith (groin). As a result, Prescott wasn't always able to deliver accurate throws and frequently looked to be getting rid of the ball earlier than he wanted to. These hardships directly translated to Bryant, who also looked to be getting double-teamed on a consistent basis. While the struggles are real, there's hope for Dallas' passing attack going forward if the team can replicate the success they had on the ground Sunday. If a more balanced attack can be attained, additional passing lanes figure to open up for Bryant on the whole.

  • Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Cleared to face Eagles
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bryant (knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Bryant was held out of practice to start the week but returned as a full participant Thursday and Friday. The Cowboys are facing a prolific offense without Ezekiel Elliott (suspension) around to help control the clock, potentially setting Bryant up for a high-volume outing. Of course, volume hasn't always translated to efficiency against the Eagles, with opposing wideouts producing 118 catches for 1,495 yards and six touchdowns on 210 targets -- good for a 56 percent catch rate and 7.2 yards per target.

  • Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Sheds injury designation
    By RotoWire Staff

    Bryant (knee) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Jane Slater of NFL Network reports. In his return to drills, Bryant shed any question about his ability to play through a knee injury Sunday against the Eagles with an uncapped session. The matchup could provide plenty of opportunity for targets, as Philly's opponents have more often than not been in catch-up mode this season.

  • Cowboys' Dez Bryant: Set to practice Thursday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett indicated that Bryant (knee) will practice Thursday, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports. Bryant's practice reps have been managed carefully in the Cowboys' four official practices since their Week 9 win over the Chiefs, a game in which the wideout sustained knee and ankle injuries. Though it appears only the former issue is bothering Bryant at this stage, the Cowboys could opt to limit his involvement during Thursday's session. Even so, Bryant seems to be trending toward suiting up and taking on a full workload Sunday against a vulnerable Eagles pass defense.

  • Bryant (knee) didn't take part in practice Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. The Cowboys appear to be in preservation mode with their top receiver during the second half of the campaign. As evidence, Bryant turned in just one limited practice while being held out of two others last week, and another light practice load could be on tap as the wideout prepares for a matchup Sunday against the Eagles. Assuming Bryant is able to take the field by the time the weekend arrives, he'll likely be in line for numerous targets against the Eagles' 26th-ranked pass defense.
