Dez Bryant injury: WR's hip a 'major concern' for Cowboys

The status of WR Dez Bryant's hip is giving the Cowboys fits. As it stands now, Bryant is a game-time decision for Sunday night's game against the Falcons.

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant's injured hip is the cause of "major concern" for the team, according to ESPN's Sal Paolantonio (via Adam Schefter).

Bryant is listed as questionable for the Cowboys' Sunday night contest against the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, and is expected to be a game-time decision. He injured the hip while making a diving catch in the Cowboys' 29-24 loss to the New York Giants in Week 8. Bryant did not appear in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, and was only a limited participant in Friday's drills. He is joined on the Cowboys' injury report by fellow wide receiver Kevin Ogletree, who is nursing a sore hamstring. Ogletree is also expected to be a game-time decision.

Through the first seven games of the 2012 season, Bryant has caught 41 passes for 488 yards and two touchdowns. He is coming off of a five-catch, 110-yard effort against the Giants.
