Dez Bryant Injury Update: Cowboys Star WR Expected To Play Monday Night

Dez Bryant, the Dallas Cowboy's big-play wide receiver out of Oklahoma State, expects to return to action for the Cowboys when they take on the rival Washington Redskins on Monday Night Football. Bryant sat out Dallas' Week 2 win with a thigh contusion but has been diligently trying to get his leg ready to play all week with regular treatments according to Evan Silva via Ed Werder

ESPN's Ed Werder on #Cowboys WR Dez Bryant (quad): "He's been punctual for treatment all week bc he knows he could play a huge role" on MNF.

Bryant's availability is even more important for Tony Romo and the Cowboys offense because of Miles Austin being scratched from the game with a hamstring injury. 

In one career game against the Redskins -- his first career game in Week 1 of 2010 -- Bryant caught eight passes for 56 yards. In his lone appearance this season, Bryant hauled in three passes for 71 yards and a score in Dallas' Week 1 loss to the New York Jets

Kickoff between the two hated rivals is at 8:30 pm EST from Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
