Bryant has four catches for 74 yards and two touchdowns in two preseason games this season. He insisted he is fine, saying on Twitter on Tuesday morning, "I promise I'm ok Cowboy nation."

He played in only nine games last season because of a foot injury, catching 31 passes for 401 yards and three touchdowns.
