Dez (Thigh) Sits; Austin (Knee) Practices

IRVING, Texas --The Cowboys' starting receivers are dealing with some bumps and bruises.

Dez Bryant missed Wednesday's practice with the thigh contusion that appeared to limit him throughout the season opener against the Jets. Miles Austin (knee) popped up on the injury report but fully participated at Cowboys Stadium.

Bryant finished last Sunday's game -- seemingly a positive sign for the 49ers game, because the Cowboys wouldn't have risked further injury to their young star against the Jets -- but he will be monitored throughout the week.

"He loves to play and wants to get himself out there," head coach Jason Garrett said. "Now, unfortunately, he has some injuries since he's been here - some serious, legitimate injuries that he's had to fight through and he'll continue to learn how to fight through those in practice and get himself out to practice and get himself as ready as he can be come game time."

Austin was limited last week coming off a strained hamstring in preseason.
