Dez Bryant is active for Monday night's game between the Cowboys and the Raiders, and already has one reception for 24 yards.

Dez Bryant was previously considered questionable for Monday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Oakland Raiders due to a hamstring injury. He did indeed suit up, however, catching a 24-yard pass from Tony Romo on the Cowboy's first possession of the first quarter.

Analysis: A healthy Dez Bryant is a dangerous thing, something that was clear on his lone reception so far. Bryant ran a deep hitch along the right sideline, letting cornerback Michael Huff running past him and elevating for the grab. Hamstrings have a habit of lingering, but the uber-talented wideout looked fine on the play. Of course, whether Bryant can stay healthy remains to be seen. He has missed five regular season games over his last two seasons, and has been limited even when he was on the field. His potential, as always, remains very high, however.
