Dez Bryant missed meetings and MRI, was fined by team

According to reports from insiders the Dallas Cowboys had the chance to acquire quarterback Josh Mc Cown from the Cleveland Browns through a trade. In exchange the Cowboys were supposed to give away backup guard Ron Leary

It was a brutal moment for the Cowboys when Bryant went down against the Bears.

The Cowboys sure look like they'll be in good hands until Romo returns - whenever that is - and Chicago might be wondering how long it can survive without Jay Cutler.

This year, the Cowboys (2-1) have won two straight with rookie quarterback Dak Prescott, doubling the number of victories they had without Romo in 14 games over the three seasons before Prescott showed up. Let's take a look at some of my takeaways from the 31-17 loss to the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Coach Jason Garrett told reporters Wednesday that Bryant is day-to-day.

Bryant's situation, along with quarterback Tony Romo missing 12 games, were the biggest reasons for last season's collapse.

"It's good to see that we have that perseverance even in tough times", said Hoyer of the second half surge. "This week was the reverse of what we've had". "We had Green come in and play well". "He's mentally tough and he's physically tough and he demonstrates that to us nearly on a daily and a weekly basis".

FRISCO, Texas - At the start of Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, Dallas Cowboys All-Pro left tackle Tyron Smith was a spectator because of back spasms.

The Browns started rookie quarterback Cody Kessler , so it's puzzling as to why the Dolphins couldn't stop predictable runs. The Dolphins didn't really "win" on Sunday they were more or less gifted a victory and the players seem to sense that.

Jaso hits for cycle as Pirates beat Cubs 8-4
The Chicago bats were held to four hits and walked four times with Anthony Rizzo going solo while Tommy La Stella knocked in two. The Pittsburgh Pirates once couldn't have hit for the cycle against Jake Arrieta in a week's worth of starts against him.

Receiver Kevin White, who missed his entire rookie season previous year with a leg injury, had his most productive game to date with six receptions for 62 yards.

They haven't scored more than one touchdown in any quarter in the first three games, and they have only 45 points to rank 30th in scoring.

The Bears may be forced to go with Howard starting in his fourth National Football League game when they play Detroit at Soldier Field because starter Jeremy Langford left Sunday's game with an ankle injury and backup Ka'Deem Carey remains out with a hamstring injury.

Now they are in position to see how they fare through the injuries in 2016.

Bryant injured the knee on his first catch on the opening series against the Bears, but came back in the first quarter. Jones said the 2014 All-Pro receiver likely had a sprained knee, and an MRI was planned this week. Injured players are normally required to report to the facility the day after the game to be re-evaluated.

Linebacker Danny Trevathan (thumb), nose tackle Eddie Goldman (ankle) and cornerback Kyle Fuller (knee) remain out. And once the 36-year old returns from a back injury he suffered in the preseason, Romo will start under center for the Cowboys, effectively forcing the talented rookie to the bench. Dallas had 447 yards, including 199 on the ground. Chicago struggled to get anything going in the first half with 114 total yards and a brief 8:13 time of possession. Fox wouldn't commit to Howard for Sunday's game at Soldier Field, but might not have much choice with second running back Ka'Deem Carey plagued by a hamstring.
