08:01 AM ET 09.23 | Though Jason Witten and Mike Jenkins were at practice Wednesday, the limitations of Dallas' young wideout is less encouraging. Rookie receiver Dez Bryant did not practice, the Cowboys reported on their official injury report. Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said it was a "slight" rib injury. Phillips said he has no doubt Bryant will play this week. It is another in a mounting list of minor injuries Bryant has had in his short career.

I heard he once saw a violent movie. Therefore, he must be a thug, too.

He got a paper cut on his pinkie finger while reviewing his playbook, then later aggravated the injury while squirting lemon juice on his fish at the training table.

Agree! T&R needs to realize that as the weeks mount, everyone plays hurt. Just listed to any sports talk radio that has a former player like Brian Mitchell. Regardless, the C-Boys haven't scored more than 24 points in a game since game 8 last year - November 1. The offense is over-rated and they are going down!!!

Pin the donkey on the OC. He has no clue how to game plan. There is too much talent for them to do so little.

Opponents are trying hard to rip Dez's head off .He is also over extending trying to make plays. Settle down Dez and let the game come to you.

When your opponent feel like they can stop your team if they stop you then you are going to take some punishment until their theory is disproved. So far no one else on that offense has taken any of the heat off him.

Starts up front... and the line is not playing well right now.

Until that gets squared away, I fear we are stuck with this mess.

Agreed, he needs to settle down. Fighting for that extra inch causes fumbles and injuries.

Never thought to see the Boy's doing this badly.

I fear you may be right... the Cowboys are stepping into a mad hornets' nest on Sunday. And I've seen nothing to this point of the season that gives me any comfort they can handle it.

No...not really! Tough to get into the playoffs starting 0-3.

Otis - if you can see any silver lining to this season, let us in on it. With the coaching staff as is, especially the OC, I don't see playoffs this year.
