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 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.
