If active, Dez Bryant likley on snap count

NFL.com - [Full Article]

Dez Bryant won't officially be active for the Dallas Cowboys until game time Sunday, but the optimism flowing from Valley Ranch is overwhelming.

Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told KRLD-FM on Friday that the team "feels really good" about Bryant's availability against the Seattle Seahawks, but added that the team will monitor the receiver's snap count in his first action since Week 1.

"To say that he's full blast might be a stretch," Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. "... I do think he's well enough that he can go in there and help us this weekend, and feel like he will do (that), barring any setbacks between now and the start of the game."

Fantasy Impact: 

Earlier in the day Bryant was asked about whether the Cowboys could keep him on a 'pitch count' or 'snap count' if he dresses, "we'll just have to see about that," the wideout replied. Bryant is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's contest. "If I go out there, I'm not going out there to paint. I'm going out there to play football," he added later. Bryant doesn't sound to keen on being shuffled in and out of the lineup. However, Jason Garrett won't just toss his Pro Bowl receiver back into the deep end against the Legion of Boom, the story added. His likely use should at least come in the red zone which makes him a worthy start as a flex or WR3 option. But it is a tough matchup.
