Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, who sought a second opinion on his fractured left index finger from a hand specialist Wednesday, said Thursday he will play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A source told ESPN the specialist confirmed the fracture would require surgery, but Bryant has decided to delay the procedure.

Bryant practiced Thursday wearing a protective splint and padding on his left hand.

"Only thing y'all need to know is I'm playing," he said in the locker room.
