Jerry Jones expects Dez Bryant to play for Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant skipped practice for the fourth straight day Tuesday as he deals with injuries.

However, owner Jerry Jones didn't sound concerned about his top playmaker, saying he expects Bryant to take part in Sunday's Hall of Fame Game against the Miami Dolphins.

"He can take it easy right now," Jones said Tuesday, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We got a lot of days left. He is likely to get snaps ... very likely. There has been no talk of him not getting snaps. It's not a hip. It's just a tweak. He could be out there in a minute. We are just resting it. There has not been a word of him not playing."

Given that Bryant played much of last season with a broken finger and still put up more than 1,300 yards, the early "tweaks," reportedly to his quad/hip area, aren't that big of a deal this early in camp. Getting him a few snaps Sunday in game action -- especially if Tony Romo ends up playing -- will be sufficient to dispel any rust from skipping some practice sessions.
