08:01 AM ET 08.22 | Sidelined with patellar tendinitis in his left knee, Dez Bryant is unlikely to play Sautrday against the Rams or in Dallas' preseason finale against the Dolphins. Rest will be the method of treatment. But Bryant has no doubts about his availability for the Sept. 5 season opener against the Giants. "You know I'm going to play in New York, that's without a doubt," said Bryant on Tuesday. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett refused to speculate when Bryant would return but was optimistic based on the test results. "Hard for us to project that much into the future," coach Jason Garrett said. "But we were pleased with what the result of the MRI was and it's a day-to-day rehab for him."

The way our centers snap the ball... "who gets the ball" is anyone's guess.

It's the "backwards shotgun" formation. The defense can't read the play beforehand, because even the offense has no idea what's going to happen.

that's issue no. 2 because right now Kevin Ogletree is the no. 1 receiver with Austin and Bryant out. That won't scare any defense that I know of.

Would you like me to give the run down or will you read up on it?

Like those snaps with more altitude than a punt...

Bryant might be better off waiting until the real refs return anyway

When opening day comes I'm sure the injuries will magicaly disappear. There's a lot of difference between a preseason injury and a real injury.

And I have watched far, far too much preseason football. It's an addiction, and the TiVo, with four tuners and thousands of hours of recording space, is an enabler.
