Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant returned to practice on Thursday, a day after sitting out to rest his sore hip. Bryant hurt his hip after landing hard in the end zone on the near-miss touchdown catch at the end of last weekend's loss to the New York Giants.
Bryant finished the game with a season-high 110 yards on five catches, a week after being held to 14 yards. The Cowboys face the Atlanta Falcons in Week 9.
Fantasy Impact: Bryant's absence on Wednesday was suspected to be a rest day, so fantasy owners can move forward with Bryant in their lineups this week. Fantasy owners are hoping that last weekend's game is the start of a consistent streak for Bryant, who has had a few duds tossed in with a mostly solid fantasy season.
Bryant should be considered a strong No. 2 fantasy receiver this week against the Falcons.
