The receiver is listed as questionable on the official injury report, but a source told ESPN Insider Adam Schefter on Thursday that Bryant is not expected to play. At all. Blaine Gabbert is not an National Football League quarterback, and how he has a starting job is beyond me. "Nobody lost any sleep, everything was good and we're moving on to San Francisco", said Bryant. He injured the knee on a catch on the second play of the game but came back and caught rookie quarterback Dak Prescott's first career touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.
The Dallas Cowboys (2-1) are coming from a 31-17 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 3.
While not declaring himself out Sunday, Bryant said he wanted to be cautious because he trusted his teammates to keep winning. Bryant says he was upset and feared the worst with his injury.
After Tony Romo went down with an injury during the Cowboys' third preseason game on August 25, Prescott was named the team's starting quarterback.
Giants WR Beckham fined $36000 for block
For the Giants star wide receiver-a player that clearly plays with his emotions on his sleeves-Sunday has been an up and down day. But the first time quarterback Eli Manning targeted Beckham, the Redskins' corner almost made a diving interception.
NOTES: Pro Bowl T Tyron Smith missed his second straight practice with a back issue that flared up late last week and caused him to miss the Chicago game. The mentality we've been building since this offseason is tremendous and I feel like any guy that steps in there if anyone goes down, can step up and do the job. "But he moved around better today than he did yesterday, and we'll just see how he functions as the week goes on".
Jones defended Bryant while saying his decision to stay away from the team for two days was "not the way we'd like to have done it ideally".
"It stems from someone who is very passionate about what he does and he did not handle this the right way", Garrett said. And they get to take on an old foe, as the team will be in San Francisco to take on Chip Kelly and the San Francisco 49ers. "When you go out here and practice and have a great time with the group of guys in this locker room and with the coaching staff here, and you're dealing with some stuff, with a knee injury that occurred on Sunday night, things sort of got hard for me from that standpoint".
Cornerback Orlando Scandrick, nursing injuries to both hamstrings, is questionable after being limited in practice all week. They've given up 83 points in their last 2 games and although Dallas just played the Bears, the Niners defensively aren't that much of a step up in competition.
