Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is officially active for Week 8 against the Seattle Seahawks and will play in his first game action since injuring his foot in the team’s opening game against the New York Giants.
Bryant broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot and underwent surgery on Sept. 15 to repair the injury. The initial diagnosis was that he would miss 4-6 weeks.
Bryant was officially listed as questionable throughout the week, but was able to practice, participating in 11-on-11 drills on Thursday and Friday.
The Cowboys coaches have not said how many snaps Bryant is expected to play, but he has been vocal about giving a full effort.
“If I go out there, I’m not going out there to paint. I’m going out there to play football,” Bryant said earlier this week.
Bryant has led the Cowboys in receiving the last three seasons, tallying a total of 3,935 yards and 41 touchdowns. Last season, he ranked ninth in the NFL in receiving yards (1,320) and first in touchdowns (16).
