The Dallas Cowboys face a tough test in the undefeated Atlanta Falcons Sunday night, but it looks like they will be able to count on the services of wide receiver Dez Bryant. Bryant is reportedly expected to play at Atlanta.

Bryant injured his hip last week during the Cowboys' 29-24 loss to the New York Giants. He was unable to practice all week, and when asked by NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport how the hip felt on Thursday, Bryant just said, "It hurts." According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, he fell on the injured hip during Saturday's walk-through.

Bryant is a third-year veteran out of Oklahoma State. In seven games this season, he has compiled 488 yards and two touchdowns on 41 receptions. Bryant has 149 catches for 1,977 yards and 17 touchdowns in his career.

The Cowboys are 3-4 and tied with the Philadelphia Eagles for second place in the NFC East. At 7-0, Atlanta is the NFL's lone unbeaten team.
