Cowboys hopeful Bryant won't miss extended period of time (0:53)

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has a hairline fracture of his right tibia but will not require surgery. It's not clear how much time he will miss but the Cowboys don't expect it to be long. Bryant suffered the injury in Sunday's win against the Chicago Bears. Brice Butler will likely move into the starting lineup. "I'm ready," Butler said.

Cowboys left guard La'el Collins is seeking an opinion from Dr. Robert Anderson on his injured right big toe. Jason Garrett called Dr. Anderson one of the foremost experts in dealing with toe injuries. In 2008 former Cowboys running back Felix Jones sought Dr. Anderson's opinion and had season-ending surgery.

Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith is not practicing because of a back injury that kept him out of last week's game against the Chicago Bears. Smith was unable to finish last Friday's practice with tightness in his back but Jason Garrett said Smith is moving around better the last few days. Cornerback Orlando Scandrick will be limited in practice after he did not practice or play last week because of hamstring strains in both legs.

The. Cowboys placed rookie defensive end Charles Tapper on injured reserve with a back injury. Tapper was diagnosed with a Pars Defect early in training camp. He had a setback in his return to practice last week. He will now miss at least the next eight weeks if not the full season. The Cowboys needed the roster spot to add offensive tackle Emmett Cleary.

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will not practice today as the team continues to evaluate his injured right knee. Jason Garrett would not say whether Bryant has had an MRI yet, which is curious since it is three days since the injury.
