Cowboys star wideout Dez Bryant appeared on the team’s injury report on Friday with a back injury but is expected to play today, according to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport.
Bryant had 11 receptions for 248 yards and two touchdowns in the three games since his return from a knee injury.
Other injuries we are keeping an eye on Sunday:
3. Chiefs sack-master Justin Houston (ACL) will be playing for the first time all season today, per his agent. The team should ease him in against the Buccaneers at home, according to Rapoport. Teammate Marcus Peters, who didn’t practice, is battling a painful hip pointer and will try to play, but will be limited if he does.
4. Rams defensive end Robert Quinn, hospitalized for dehydration earlier this week, has said he’s hopeful at being out on the field against the Dolphins. He and running back Todd Gurley (thigh) are expected to play, according to Rapoport.
9. Bears wide receiver Eddie Royal (toe) is expected to play, according to Rapoport.
10. Browns cornerback Tramon Williams (knee) will be a game-time decision, according to Rapoport.
12. Lions defensive end Ezekiel Ansah (ankle) will be active and teammate Theo Riddick is good to go, per Rapoport. Rapoport also reported that running back Ameer Abdullah (IR, foot) will see Dr. Robert Anderson on Tuesday to see if he can start practicing again.
13. Dolphins wide receivers Jarvis Landry (shoulder) and Kenny Stills (calf) are both expected to play, according to Rapoport. Teammate Mario Williams (ankle) however, is a game-time decision.
15. Niners wide receiver Torrey Smith (shoulder) is a long shot to play, per Rapoport.
