After sitting out three weeks with a knee injury, Dez Bryant has said all along he expects to play when the Cowboys return from the bye week this weekend.
And it's not likely even a laceration to two fingers will keep him out of playing in the Oct. 30 game with the Eagles.
Bryant had bandages around his middle and index fingers on his right hand on Wednesday, telling the media that he cut them while cooking dinner on Tuesday. In a playful mood, Bryant laughed and it was "extremely minor," although he didn't practice on Wednesday – the last practice of the week before the players get four days off.
"Yeah, he's got a cut on the inside of his hand, so he wasn't able to catch balls today," Garrett said during his Wednesday press conference. "(Dez) did a good job moving around though. I think he's feeling better and better and better."
Bryant played the first three games of the season, although he sustained the hairline fracture in his knee early in the Week 3 win over the Bears. Bryant continued to play and caught his only touchdown of the season on a fourth-quarter reception.
