The Dallas Cowboys have officially designated Dez Bryant as "questionable" for Sunday's game against the Seattle Seahawks. The final decision on whether he will play this week is up to the Cowboys front office and medical personnel. If it was left up to Dez, there would be no doubt about him playing - he would. But the Cowboys will confer over the next day or so and make a decision.
Bryant has practiced in a limited capacity all week and reports that his foot feels good enough to go. Certainly Bryant's presence would lend a spark to an offense that has been very inconsistent over the past four games, and has struggled to finish drives in the red zone. Bryant is the kind of receiver that can open up the running game with his presence, and help make his quarterback, Matt Cassel, look better.
The Cowboys have also listed Barry Church as questionable for the game. He will test his high-ankle sprain on Sunday before the game to see if he can play. If not, expect a lot more of Byron Jones and a smattering of Jeff Heath.
On the other side of the field, the Seahawks have listed left tackle Russell Okung as
doubtful questionable (earlier reports had doubtful). If he doesn't play that would further deplete an already porous offensive line. The Cowboys defense might be able to get after Russell Wilson and help to slow down the Seahawks offense.
