Dez Bryant injury update: Cowboys WR questionable vs. Eagles

The return of Dez Bryant could come in a primetime NFC East clash.

The Dallas Cowboys are listing Dez Bryant as questionable to face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

The All-Pro receiver was able to practice this week, but did so in only a limited capacity in all three sessions. That was also the case in Week 6 before Bryant was inactive vs. the Green Bay Packers. He then got a bye week to rest his knee injury, which occurred during Dallas' Week 3 win over the Chicago Bears.

That led to Bryant missing Weeks 4-6, and it looks like he will be a true game-time decision on Sunday. That makes him a tricky fantasy play this week since we will not know if he is active until Sunday night after most of the NFL has already played their games.

In three games this season, Bryant has 11 catches for 150 yards and one score.

Fantasy Impact: Yahoo! ranks Bryant as the 20th-best receiver in Week 8. He would face an Eagles defense allowing the seventh-fewest fantasy points to wide receivers this season.

Still, Bryant is too good to bench against anyone when he’s playing. If Bryant is active, keep him in your starting lineup.
