Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will attempt to play on Sunday despite a broken left index finger, a source tells ESPN's Ed Werder. Bryant met with a hand specialist on Wednesday and decided to delay surgery.
Bryant, according to Werder, will be limited in practice on Thursday but will try and catch a few passes. Werder reports that Bryant most likely will wear a splint and work with team trainers to get more comfortable playing with the injury. Bryant has scored in five straight games for the Cowboys, who face the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Fantasy owners will have to hope Bryant can play through the injury because he's been very productive of late. Those counting on Bryant for the playoffs will have to monitor his progress on Thursday and Friday.
For now, treat Bryant more like a No. 2 option at wide receiver for Week 15.
