Dez Bryant to play 'a few snaps' in Cowboys' preseason opener

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will play "a few snaps" in Monday's preseason opener against the Oakland Raiders as he comes back from a hamstring strain, according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Bryant hauled in a 24-yard pass from Tony Romo in the Cowboys' second play from scrimmage Monday night.

Hill reports that the Cowboys made the decision to play Bryant after Monday's warmups. Bryant was in jeopardy of missing the game with the injury, which was suffered during team drills on Saturday.

The Cowboys already will be without No. 1 receiver Miles Austin against the Raiders with a hamstring injury of his own.

Prior to his injury, Bryant was reportedly the "best player" on the field at Cowboys camp.
