Now the Cowboys are staring at the possibility of again being without both after Bryant suffering a tibial plateau fracture in his right leg. Cowboys coach Jason Garrett wouldn't rule Bryant out of Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers, but he wouldn't rule Romo out of the season opener after the quarterback suffered a compression fracture in his back August 25.
Coach Jason Garrett said there was no update on Bryant's status.
Bryant sustained the injury on the first drive of last Sunday's 31-17 victory against the Chicago Bears.
Along with his two rushing scores, and one passing touchdown to Dez Bryant, Prescott has yet to turn the ball over. Those kinds of guys it's fairly easy to kind of tailor, you know, when I say easy - less hard to tailor a plan for him to be able to function.
Prescott said he feels as if he belongs on this stage even if it is supposedly just on the interim basis until starter Tony Romo returns from a fractured bone in his back.
Garrett said he has been told that some players never miss time with that kind of injury.
Doing it with a lineup that fluctuates nearly daily because of injuries is the tricky part for Chicago after its second straight 0-3 start. "But we've got to keep moving forward, find ways to win".

He's run these runs a little bit, run them against different fronts, he's felt the different looks and he's getting more and more comfortable. "Whether he was cleared or not, it's a day-to-day thing, and that's how I look at it". Dak was decisive and surgical throughout the game, hitting on 19 of 24 attempts for 248 yards and two total touchdowns, including his first career touchdown pass, in which he hit Dez Bryant on a 17-yard post route with just over nine minutes to go in the fourth quarter. "Really, in all three phases I think there's been some positives".
I think we did have some explosive runs - we had more explosive plays in this game than we did in the prior two.
NOTES: DE Charles Tapper, a rookie fourth-round draft pick, was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. He also dealt with knee and ankle injuries last season. They played without Pro Bowl left tackle Tyron Smith (back), and left guard La'el Collins was knocked out of the game by a sprained foot.
"Everybody has to elevate their play and be better for the entire team", Miller said.
NOTES: CB Orlando Scandrick was limited in practice with a pair of groin injuries that sidelined him last week.
Early in the second quarter, Prescott passed 29 yards to Cole Beasley to the 1.
