With Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant questionable to play in Sunday’s game at San Francisco after missing three straight days of practice because of a bruised thigh, Kevin Ogletree could be in the starting lineup for the first time in his career.
Ogletree had two catches for 12 yards in the season opening loss to the New York Jets. He needs one reception to equal last year’s total.
"Kevin’s ready," said Miles Austin, who is probable for the game with a knee injury and was limited in Friday’s practice. “He knows all the positions, inside, outside. He’s definitely going to be ready if someone can’t go."
Ogletree was never seriously challenged for the No. 3 receiver role behind Austin and Bryant and finished the preseason with three catches for 34 yards.
It's hard to get excited about Ogletree, but if you can change lineups before the late games and Dez doesn't end up playing, he could be an emergency option.
