Fantasy Tip: Bryant is a tough player and he hasn't shown any ill-effects of the injury since returning to the game.

Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant was given more snaps in the slot in Week 2, which was part of a conscious effort from head coach Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to get Bryant more involved in the offense.
Fantasy Tip: Fantasy owners don't really want to know how the sausage is made, but Bryant's seven catches for 102 yards in Week 2 sure looked a lot more appealing than his one-catch, eight-yard opener. Look for the team to continue finding ways to keep Bryant involved, and keep him in your lineup as a WR1.

Dallas Cowboys CB Orlando Scandrick (hamstring) said Wednesday, Sept. 21, that he is not 100 percent. His reconstructed knee is fine, but he has been dealing with hamstring injuries in both legs. "I'm just not myself," Scandrick said. "It's encouraging that it's not my knee. That repair is holding up strong. But the facts are the facts. I haven't played in a year, and after two games, I haven't been able to play fully. I'm extremely sore today."
