Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game at San Francisco. He did not practice during the week after being diagnosed with a tibial plateau fracture in his right knee. Last week cornerback Orlando Scandrick was listed as questionable after not practicing during the week with hamstring strains on both legs and did not play vs. Chicago. Bryant said he and the team will "play it safe," with the injury.
