Dez Bryant: "I'll be 100 percent for New England"

IRVING -- Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant didn't want to talk about the 34-30 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He seems to be moving around better as his bruised thigh continues to heal.

"I'm about 80-85 percent," Bryant said after Wednesday's light practice at Valley Ranch.

Then came this proclamation from Bryant: "I'll be 100 percent for New England."

The Patriots game, Oct. 16, should be the return of several players including fellow wide receiver Miles Austin, who missed the last two games with a hamstring injury.

With Bryant and Austin in the lineup, and adding the solid play of Laurent Robinson, the passing attack should provide the Patriots, who are last in the NFL against the pass, with some trouble.
