Anyone have any news on Dez Bryant's injury?

Postby nandaman » Thu Sep 15, 2011 12:06 am

I hear pulled quad, but I also hear he is out for week 2 vs SF. Anyone have any more information about this? How long he'll be out? Severeity of the injury? Quad strains on an explosive player can be season-long....or multiple weeks (ie Stephen Jackson, etc)

Im curious also cause he is one of my starting WR's! Ill share what little I know, this is from my CBS Sports Fantasy webpage ... I think its going to be a game-time decision, so we wont know for sure till right before the game! which sucks!

Dez Bryant, WR DAL
News: A day after saying Dez Bryant, who has a bruised thigh, would play Week 2 against the 49ers, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones backed off his comments Friday as he appeared on 105.3 The Fan. "We're going to have to monitor that and are monitoring it," Jones said. "He didn't practice the last couple of days, but we'll see how he does (Friday) and of course we've got at least 48 hours before kickoff time. Hopefully he'll feel better as we get closer to Sunday." The Dallas Morning News reports Bryant wasn't at practice Friday morning and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game.

Analysis: It's looking like Bryant is going to be a game-time call for Week 2. If Bryant is active on Sunday, then view him as a No. 2 Fantasy WR. The 49ers allowed Seahawks WRs to total 137 yards and two touchdowns in Week 1.
QB: J.Cutler, M.Hasselbeck, T.Tebow

Dez Bryant status update?

Postby saemick » Sun Sep 25, 2011 2:38 pm

Word is he should start on Monday per Rotoworld:

Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas expects Dez Bryant (quad) and Tony Romo (ribs) to play Monday night.
Romo, Bryant, and Felix Jones all went through Sunday's walkthrough. "For those who have asked, yes, I would start Tony Romo and/or Dez Bryant in fantasy football this week," tweets MacMahon. Neither player is going to be at full strength, but Bryant is a top-20 wide receiver play and Romo a borderline top-10 quarterback this week. Sep 25 - 12:13 PM

I have Dez in 2 of my leagues and can swap him in for:

Mike Williams (TB) in 1 league
Bowe (.5PPR) in another

so, got some tough decisions... and a personal interest in him playing

Does anyone have any updates on Dez???
