It is looking less and less likely that Dez Bryant will be good to go on Sunday.
According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, the Dallas Cowboys' star wide receiver is unlikely to play Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals due to a knee injury.
As per the latest updates on Bryant's status, he is dealing with a bone bruise that already held him out of action in Week 4.
Bryant is set to test out his knee in practice on Friday, but the Cowboys' star wideout has been unable to participate fully so far this week. All of these factors point to a slim likelihood of Bryant taking the field on Sunday.
The Cowboys' receivers have banded together in Bryant's absence, especially No.3 pass-catcher Cole Beasley who has caught 10 passes for 139 yards and a touchdown over the last two weeks.
