Dallas Morning News - [Full Article]

Dez Bryant's Q-rating is soaring. But the rookie's rise has come at the expense of starters Miles Austin and Roy Williams.

Over the last five games, Bryant has more receptions, yards and touchdowns than Austin and Williams combined.

Bryant has 24 catches for 359 yards and five touchdowns. Austin has 16 receptions for 251 yards and one touchdown, and Williams has seven catches for 88 yards and two scores.

Bryant's popularity extends to the relatively ignored elder receivers.

"Dez is playing lights out right now," Austin said. "If I was the quarterback, I'd be throwing him the ball."

Williams had 21 catches the first five games but only four since then. Two of those came last week against the Giants.

"He's a good football player, kind of like the tables have turned," Williams said. "I was scoring the touchdowns and all of a sudden I get swept up under the thing and here comes Dez scoring touchdowns. I just hope that all three of us can just do it."
