"He looked good in practice and should do even more tomorrow," said Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones on Wednesday, per The Dallas Morning News. "It's premature to say he'll play Sunday, but he's on target to play this weekend if this continues."

Bryant was limited on Wednesday in his first practice work since breaking a bone in his right foot against the Giants in the season opener. Coach Jason Garrett on Thursday said Bryant "had a good day yesterday" and would practice again, saying "he'll warm up early on" and "get some work in individual." Bryant's practice load on Thursday, per Garrett, depends on "how functional he is, how he feels while he's doing it and how he feels after."

Bryant seemed to be in an optimistic mood as well following practice, telling reporters, "I had a great day of practice," per The Dallas Morning News

The Pro Bowl wideout spent the past two-plus weeks engaging in on-field rehab and resistance training, while also receiving a stem cell injection in his foot. The Cowboys don't want to force him into action prematurely, but their passing game has withered without Dez.
