Dez Bryant injury update: Fantasy owners shouldn't worry after missed practice

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

Well, perhaps you should worry a little bit. We break down the fantasy implications.

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant (hip) missed practice on Thursday, his second consecutive day without participating. Bryant came down hard on one of the final plays of the game against the Giants on Sunday, but he said "I'm ready," and that he doesn't think it will stop him from playing.

New York plays the Falcons in Week 9.

Fantasy Take: It sounds promising to hear that Bryant expects to play, but it's an entirely different situation if he misses practice again on Friday. Bryant has been very hot as of late and it would be a tough blow for fantasy owners and for Tony Romo. How many interceptions will he throw without Bryant there?

If he's good to go, I expect Bryant to be a high-end WR2 this week.
