Bryant (Thigh) 50/50 For Sunday

IRVING, Texas --A day after saying Dez Bryant would likely play with a quadriceps bruise against San Francisco, Jerry Jones wouldn't guarantee the Bryant's availability during the Cowboys owner's Friday radio appearance.

Bryant indeed didn't practice again Friday and is officially listed as questionable for Sunday at Candlestick Park. At this point, consider him a game-time decision.

"We're going to have to monitor that and are monitoring it," Jones said on KRLD-FM. "He didn't practice the last couple of days, but we'll see how he does today and of course we've got at least 48 hours before kickoff time. Hopefully he'll feel better as we get closer to Sunday."

Head coach Jason Garrett's stance hasn't changed all week: Bryant's day-to-day.

He bruised his thigh early in last week's season opener, possibly on his lone punt return in the first quarter, and appeared limited the rest of the night. Cramps were also an issue.

If Bryant can't play or is limited, Kevin Ogletree would likely start in his place. Rookie Dwayne Harris could be the primary punt returner regardless of Bryant's status.

Also, rookie guard Bill Nagy (neck) is listed as doubtful, a strong indication that veteran Derrick Dockery will start at right guard.

At cornerback, Terence Newman (groin) and Orlando Scandrick (ankle) are out, and Mike Jenkins (shoulder) is probable.

Wide receiver Miles Austin (knee), linebacker Anthony Spencer (shoulder), center Phil Costa (knee) and tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle) are all probable.

Linebacker Sean Lee (back) also popped up on Friday's injury report with limited participation. But he's probable as well.
