Usually, road teams adjust their injury reports after the team flight takes off, with players who didn’t make the road trip being downgraded from “questionable” or “doubtful” to “out.” But in the case of Dez Bryant, the Cowboys are still saying there’s a chance he could play tomorrow against the Giants, even though he wasn’t on the team flight to New Jersey.
A Cowboys spokesman told the Dallas Morning News that Bryant could still fly to New Jersey on his own and hasn’t been downgraded from “doubtful” to “out.”
Owners probably shouldn't hold their breath for Dez to play in Week 7. And at this point, even if he makes the flight on his own, it's hard to imagine he'll be at full strength. Week 8 now becomes the goal.
