Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith is missing his second straight day of practice with back tightness. He is doing resistance training off to the side. He did not play last week vs. Chicago but the team has hope he can play Sunday at San Francisco.
Bryant isn't Prescott's favorite target
Through three weeks, Dak Prescott has thrown to Cole Beasley more than Dez Bryant, while targeting Jason Witten nearly as much. Bryant has caught less than half the targets his way, compared to Beasley's 80 percent.
Cowboys WR Dez Bryant did not get treatment on his leg until Wednesday because he feared bad news. Said coach Jason Garrett: "He didn't handle it the right way."
Dez Bryant's behavior is disappointing since he's a team leader. Jason Garrett's behavior is worse, considering his focus on accountability.
Despite their issues at quarterback, the Niners showed no interest in drafting Dak Prescott, according to the Cowboys' starter.
Cowboys rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who is coming off his first 30-carry game in the NFL, says his body is ready for more punishment.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett confirmed Dez Bryant missed treatments and team meetings on Monday-Wednesday because the receiver feared the knee injury was worse than suspected and did not want to face the decision. "It was the wrong thing to do,"Garrett said. Bryant has a tibial plateau fracture in his right leg. Garrett said Bryant would not practice today but Bryant is moving around better and not ruled out of playing Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford, who missed time in training camp with injuries, is excited again after his big game vs. Chicago.
Dez Bryant was just starting to heat up
Bryant's knee injury comes at a bad time, as he was much more involved in Weeks 2 and 3 than Week 1, when he only caught one pass on five targets.
Brice Butler has been through a full offseason program, OTAs, minicamp, training camp and preseason. "It's a totally different ballgame now."
The Cowboys' offense stalled when Dez Bryant and Tony Romo were out in 2015, but with Dak Prescott playing well they aim to avoid a repeat performance.
The MRI on Dez Bryant's injured right knee was delayed because the Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was absent from Monday's treatment for injured players and Tuesday's meetings, sources confirmed.
Confirman fractura de Bryant

Make sure to tune in for Bills-Patriots
The Bills righted the ship a bit in Week 3, and meetings between Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan are always entertaining. Only two Week 4 games have a higher matchup quality, per ESPN's Football Power Index. FPI game rater
