From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): Bryant and the whole Cowboys team found their equilibrium in the big road win at Tennessee. He wasn't a huge downfield threat, but Bryant showed durability coming back after an early shoulder issue caused him to leave the game, and he is still far and away the #1 target in the offense.

Week 3: at St. Louis Rams

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs SF (6 / 4 / 55 / 0 rec)

Bryant was in and out of the game in the second half against the 49ers with reported dehydration issues. Taking a huge shot to the lower back when extending for a high throw early in the game did not help matters. With on-target throws, Bryant cleanly caught the ball and outmuscled defenders after the catch. Two of Bryant's targets resulted in interceptions, once with tight double-coverage on a deep route. Bryant also had a holding penalty while blocking for a wide receiver screen.

2014 Week 2 vs TEN (14 / 10 / 103 / 1 rec)

After a dehydration and dinged up Week 1, Bryant battled through an early shoulder injury this week in Tennessee to have a strong performance. The chemistry built late last season and in the preseason between Bryant and Tony Romo was on display throughout the game. Bryant saw single coverage on back to back goal line targets, corralling the second with ease for a second half touchdown. Bryant scooped up two low targets in the game as well. Production available to Bryant not in the box score includes drawing a defensive pass interference penalty on a third down slant route and dropping a high target on third down in field goal range to close the first half.

He was taken to the locker room in the third quarter of the Week 1 game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday, Sept. 7, for examination.

Our View: The injury doesn't seem to be serious, but it is putting the kibosh on any kind of good stat line for Bryant as the Cowboys are in what should be the weekly script of trying to come back from a huge deficit.
