Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant was limited in practice on Wednesday with hamstring and wrist issues, but his status for Sunday’s match-up with the Lions doesn’t seem to be in any doubt and the injuries aren’t being considered all that serious. Bryant was in pads and everything, but the team reportedly held him out for certain portions of the workout.
Miles Austin was also limited on Wednesday, just a few days after head coach Jason Garrett hinted that the team might consider shutting him down for a couple weeks in order to get that nagging hamstring back to full strength. Austin has yet to record a catch in two games since returning from the initial injury.
Like Bryant, starting running back DeMarco Murray practiced, but was held out of certain drills. Owner Jerry Jones said this week that there’s a “good chance” Murray will play against the Lions this week after missing the win over the Eagles with a sprained MCL, and Murray seems confident that he’s on the right track to do just that.
“I was out there [practicing] wasn't I?” Murray said, per ESPN Dallas. “I was out there working.”
