Dez Bryant caught 2-of-8 targets for 26 yards in the Cowboys' Week 12 loss to the Panthers.
According to the game charting of PFF's Nate Jahnke, Bryant played 49 snaps in this one. He lined up six times in the slot and outside on 43 plays, and was shadowed by Josh Norman on all 43 of his perimeter snaps. While Norman has moved to the forefront of the NFL Defensive Player of the Year discussion, this is shaping up as a likely lost season for Dez, who missed extensive early-year action with a foot fracture and will likely now have to deal without Tony Romo (collarbone) for the remainder of the season.

Speaking Monday, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said RCB Josh Norman will "probably" shadow Dez Bryant on Thanksgiving.

Norman has been arguably the league's best cornerback this season, and will be a monster test for Bryant. Norman rarely covers the slot, so perhaps Bryant will see more routes there. Regardless of the cornerback covering him, Bryant is a WR1.

Dez Bryant caught 4-of-9 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in Dallas' Week 11 win over the Dolphins.

Bryant got off to a rough start in Tony Romo's return, running the wrong route on a red zone interception. He rebounded later by catching a 16-yard score, splitting a linebacker and safety (neat plan, Miami). Supposedly playing through three injuries, Bryant looked healthy. Banged up and playing on a short week, Bryant has a tough Thanksgiving matchup in the Panthers, but at home with Romo under center, he'll be a WR1.
Nov 22 - 5:10 PM

Dez Bryant (ankle, foot, knee) is listed as probable for Week 11 against the Dolphins after practicing on a limited basis Thursday and Friday.

Bryant caused a bit of a stir Friday morning when he wasn’t available for the part of practice open to the media, but he returned after getting his knee wrapped. Dez should be a top-five option the rest of the way with Tony Romo back.
Nov 20 - 3:38 PM

Dez Bryant missed the start of Friday's practice to get his left knee wrapped.

He returned later and was seen catching passes from Tony Romo. Bryant is banged up but there's no doubt he'll be on the field Sunday against Miami. He should be a top-three option this week.
Nov 20 - 12:30 PM

Dez Bryant (knee) remained limited at Thursday's practice.

Bryant is dealing with nagging ankle, foot and knee injuries but should be ready to roll Sunday against Miami. He'll be a top-five option this week with Tony Romo (collarbone) back under center.
Nov 19 - 3:36 PM

Dez Bryant (knee, foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

He'll be fine for Week 11 against the Dolphins, and with Tony Romo (collarbone) back, Bryant has top-three upside. Bryant hasn't suffered any setbacks.
Nov 18 - 12:36 PM

Dez Bryant caught 5-of-12 targets for 45 yards in Dallas' Week 10 loss to the Bucs.

Bryant also committed two drops, and was the target on Matt Cassel's game-ending interception. Bryant seemed more concerned with begging for a flag than breaking up the pass. Mercifully for Bryant and every Cowboys skill player, Tony Romo is expected back for Week 11. Bryant will be a top-five WR1 against the Dolphins' shaky pass defense.
Nov 15 - 4:55 PM

Dez Bryant (knee) remained limited at Friday's practice and is probable for Week 10 against the Buccaneers.

Bryant is coming off his best game of the year, a 104-yard showing against the Eagles in Week 9. Just as he was before his broken foot, Bryant is back to being an every-week WR1.
Nov 13 - 3:41 PM

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said Dez Bryant (knee) will be limited in Thursday's practice.

Garrett confirmed Bryant's knee and not his surgically-repaired foot was the concern. Bryant's status for this week is not in much doubt, and getting in even a limited practice Thursday is a good sign. He will be a solid WR1 even with Matt Cassel under center against the Bucs.
Nov 12 - 12:15 PM

Dez Bryant (knee) is not practicing Wednesday.

Bryant landed awkwardly on his left knee after catching Matt Cassel's Hail Mary touchdown Sunday night. He played through it then and is fully expected to play Week 10 against the Bucs. Cassel at quarterback is the only thing holding Bryant back from being a top-three receiver this week.
Nov 11 - 12:29 PM

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Dez Bryant (foot) should be "fine" after landing awkwardly during a touchdown catch against the Eagles Sunday night.

Bryant appeared to hurt himself after jumping over several defenders for a touchdown in the fourth quarter, but he played the rest of the game. He could be limited some in practice this week, but Bryant is fully expected to play. He will be a back-end WR1 against the Bucs' terrible secondary.
Nov 10 - 10:04 AM

Dez Bryant caught 5-of-8 targets for 104 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

Bryant burned the Eagles for two catches and 56 yards on the Cowboys' first drive. He was mostly quiet in the second half before scoring on a jump-ball over multiple defenders. Bryant looked close to fully healthy, but struggled with his conditioning late. He drew multiple pass interference calls against CB Byron Maxwell to set up the game-tying field goal in a game Dallas ultimately lost. Even with Matt Cassel starting, Bryant is locked in as a WR1 for Week 10.
Nov 9 - 1:05 AM

Dez Bryant (foot) is active for Week 9 against the Eagles.

Bryant didn't suffer any setbacks after playing 82 percent of snaps last week. His status was never in doubt. Inactive for Dallas are QB Kellen Moore, WR Brice Butler, CB Corey White, RB Trey Williams, OG Ron Leary, TE Geoff Swaim, and DL Ryan Russell.
Nov 8 - 7:13 PM

Dez Bryant has seven touchdowns in eight games against the Eagles.

Bryant was limited by Richard Sherman and Matt Cassel’s ineffectiveness last week. He'll have an easier time against a middling Eagles secondary on Sunday night. Bryant is Rotoworld’s No. 13 receiver for Week 9.
