Dez Bryant Injury Update: Dallas Cowboys Receiver Will See Limited Action Vs. Oakland Raiders

Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant will take part in a "few snaps" after going through on-field warmups before tonight's Monday Night Football game against the Oakland Raiders. according to the team. Bryant was reported to have been running routes and going through the warmups at full speed, with the team originally stating that he was a game-time decision following warmups.

Bryant tweaked his hamstring during Saturday's practice, although he did take full part in walkthroughs yesterday in Oxnard, CA before the team headed off to Oakland for tonight's game. With the Cowboys already wary about hamstring injuries after Miles Austin's injury history the past few years (and current status), the team was being understandably cautious when it comes to their star receiver.

The Cowboys will be missing six starters total, with Morris Claiborne (knee), Miles Austin (hamstring), Nate Livings (hamstring), Phil Costa (back), Jay Ratliff (foot), Jason Hatcher (groin) and Anthony Spencer (hamstring) all being held out of tonight's contest against the Raiders.
