Cowboys concerned WR Bryant won't play against Vikings

Dez Bryant's ongoing problems with a high ankle sprain could keep the Dallas receiver out of the Cowboys' game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the *Dallas Morning News* reported Friday.

Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said Thursday he was "worried" Bryant won't be able to play after the rookie missed most of Thursday's practice. Bryant was listed as having rib and ankle injuries on the practice participation report and missed his third consecutive practice Friday as well.

He is officially listed as questionable.

Bryant, who has 17 receptions for 180 yards and has returned a punt for a touchdown, missed the entire exhibition season after sustaining the injury July 30.
