The Dallas Cowboys are riding high right now. They’re 5-1 following a dominating road victory over the Green Bay Packers and it looks like they’ll get their top offensive weapon back following the bye.
A jubilant Dez Bryant proclaimed to The Dallas Morning News’ Jon Machota that he will indeed be ready to play when the Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 30.
That’s dandy news for the Cowboys, who have been just fine without their leading receiver. Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 247 yards and 3 touchdowns on Sunday against Green Bay and three different Cowboys caught at least four passes and racked up at least 42 yards. Cole Beasley was the biggest winner, leading the team with 6 catches and 2 touchdowns.
The Cowboys are rolling without Bryant and starting quarterback Tony Romo. While Bryant will certainly assume his starting role once he’s healthy, Romo might not. Prescott, at the very least, has sparked a debate as to who the starter should be for the rest of the season.
