Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (knee) says he'll play Week 8

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant felt good enough to play on Sunday, but the team decided to sit him again. Next time up, Bryant says there’s no decision to make: He’s playing.

Bryant said after the Cowboys beat the Packers on Sunday that with Dallas heading into its bye week, he has absolutely no doubt that he’s playing the next game, against the Eagles in Week Eight.

“Don’t have to ask me anymore, I’m good,” Bryant told Jane Slater of NFL Network. “Playing against Philly.”

Fantasy Impact: 

Bryant suffered a knee injury in Week 3 and has been out since then. The Cowboys have gone 3-0 without him, but they’d love to have him back at 100 percent down the stretch as they push for the playoffs. Who will be throwing him the ball is another question. We had a story on Saturday that said don't expect Tony Romo to return for Week 8, but possibly Week 9. However Dak Prescott has been impressive so the Cowboys have a tough decision to make at QB in the near future.
