Injury Expectations | Wednesday Update | Week 10

A review of the week's first full practice participation report


***Dez Bryant didn't practice on Wednesday. Jason Garrett told reporters on Monday the Cowboys didn't believe Bryant's injury was significant. Along with video evidence of a high ankle sprain, Bryant is also reported to have a bruise around his knee. The knee contusion isn't likely to be in a weight-bearing location, making the ankle injury the primary concern. Despite the Monday optimism, it's not uncommon for high ankle sprains to recover more slowly than initially projected. Consider Bryant a game-time decision for now. If he's back to practice tomorrow, there's a chance he'll be able to play with minimal limitation. It's not looking favorable, however.

***Julio Jones is also uncertain to play with an ankle injury. The Falcons would only say Jones had a lower leg issue on Monday. Replays showed mechanisms of a high ankle sprain and an MCL sprain. It looks like Jones avoided the knee sprain but a high ankle sprain -- you know what I'm about to type here -- is a difficult injury to project in the first 2-3 days. I don't expect to see Jones practice tomorrow but he's played when only managed limited Friday practices in the week. Hopefully, Dan Quinn will be more forthcoming on Jones by the end of the week.
