Dez Bryant expected to return

Dez Bryant will make his return to the field today against the Seahawks, barring a late setback during warm-ups.

He’ll wear a custom orthotic on his foot.

His bone is healing well, and they don’t believe he’s at further risk of injury. Bryant’s presence should provide a lift for the team badly in need of a win.

The Dallas Cowboys medical and training staff, widely respected around the NFL, took several steps to speed up Bryant’s recovery from the Jones fracture. The bone graft they did was actually proactive, not as a result of a chronic component to the injury as is often the case. They used it to promote long-term healing.

A few weeks later, the Cowboys had Bryant undergo a procedure to remove bone marrow stem cells from his hip and inject them into his ankle. That was believed to accelerate the process, too. And Bryant worked hard with the training staff to get back as soon as he could.

Bryant practiced off to the side last week, and was a limited participant in practice this week.

Dez Bryant will miss fifth game

Dez Bryant is officially out of the lineup for today’s game with the Giants. The Dallas Cowboys have downgraded his status to out. Bryant will join the team to give his support from the sideline.

Without Bryant and Tony Romo, the Cowboys have lost three straight games, but will hope to break that trend at MetLife Stadium, where the Cowboys have won three straight games over the Giants.

The Cowboys will start Brice Butler opposite of Terrance Williams. Butler, acquired via trade the week after Bryant broke his foot in the season opener. His first catch as a Cowboy, a 67-yarder in the Superdome that remains the longest completion this season by the Dallas offense. Butler is back after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 4. Butler, a third-year veteran, already knew Cassel as a fellow former USC Trojan before this season.

“I have a decent rapport with him from before he came in,” Butler said. “You come into a new place and you don’t really know everybody and then you find out he gets traded a week after you, it brings you some type of comfort or peace just in case he went in. And he’s in now. I think we’ll be fine.”

The only other uncertain injury situation involves tight end James Hanna, who is questionable to play with an ankle injury. He missed the last game against the Patriots and if he doesn’t play again, rookie Geoff Swaim will get the nod again.

Rain expected, field position key

With rain in the Meadowlands forecast and Matt Cassel making his debut at quarterback, field position is one key area for the Cowboys against the Giants.

Currently tied with Jacksonville for last in takeaways (3), the defense will look to force their first turnover since Week 2. And on special teams, the Cowboys are seeking their first big kickoff or punt return of the season.

So far, the longest totals have been a 32-yard kickoff return from Lance Dunbar and a 12-yard punt return from Cole Beasley. Dunbar’s season ended in Week 4 when he tore his ACL on a kickoff return, leaving the Cowboys without their primary kickoff returner and part-time punt returner. Rookie Lucky Whitehead had the team’s only kickoff return the following week against the Patriots, and he and Beasley each had one punt return.

In the 30-6 loss to New England, the Cowboys’ average starting field position was their own 18-yard line. Those are long drives for an offense. Some shorter fields would help.

Assistant head coach/special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia said the return game can improve. Part of it has been dealing with difficult field position against some good punters. Part of it is creating more room for the returners.

“It’s not always the return guy,” Bisaccia said. “I’ve said that for years. In the past we’ve had a good group of guys blocking in front and certainly a dynamic returner, and now we’re getting comfortable with the returns that we’ve used and getting a little bit better blocking up front.”

For the Giants, former Cowboys wide receiver/returner Dwayne Harris has held the same duties in New York. In four seasons with the Cowboys he scored two punt return touchdowns and averaged 11.1 yards on 87 returns. This year he’s averaging 7.4 yards on 16 punt returns and 27.8 yards on five kickoff returns.

GAMEDAY GUT-CHECK: Dallas Cowboys state-0f-the-star | Can America’s Team bounce back after the bye-week?

America's Team - The Boys Are Back website 2012

The Dallas Cowboys and Jersey Giants meet again for the second time in seven weeks. Dallas won’t have Tony Romo to lead them on another game-winning drive in the final seconds as he did in the opener. It’s Matt Cassel’s show today. The 11-year veteran making his first start at quarterback for America’s team with Romo (fractured collarbone) still out a few more games.

Here are the gut feelings from a few local insiders/writers:

Phillips: For two weeks everyone has debated the differences between Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel. Will Cassel take chances downfield where Weeden checked down? There needs to be a balance between conservative and plain risky, and Cassel has to find it Sunday. With Dez Bryant out against the Giants, Cassel is likely to see the Giants crowd the line the way opponents did against Weeden. He’ll need to hit open receivers when they’re there, but a bunch of turnovers on forced throws won’t help the Cowboys’ cause. I think Cassel will indeed be efficient and effective enough to win this game, and he’ll get help from the Cowboys’ defense ending its three-game takeaway drought. Dallas outlasts the Giants, 23-21, despite a 250-yard effort from Eli Manning.

Broaddus: Gut feeling this week is that Rod Marinelli goes back to his 3-2-6 defensive scheme to attack this Giants offense. There are two things that he gets out of it that can help this defense. First he gets the one-on-one matchups across the board to attack Manning, which puts pressure on the offensive line, but more importantly Marinelli gets extra defensive backs on the field. To win this game I believe the Giants are going to have to win the battles on the outside. If Dallas can hold up in the secondary, then it’s going to be a long day for the Giants. Look for Marinelli to mix and match his fronts and coverage’s but the 3-2-6 look being a go-to one in this game. Cowboys win, 19-17.

Helman: There’s just enough different about this team to make me feel optimistic. No, I don’t think Matt Cassel is going to make anyone forget Tony Romo, but I do think he’s capable of sparking a more explosive passing game. No, I don’t think Christine Michael is going to have a 100-yard day, but I do think he can contribute enough to get the ground game out of its funk. On the other side of the matchup, the Cowboys have an absurdly favorable look against a leaky Giants offensive line. I don’t know if they’ll get five sacks, but Greg Hardy, Tyrone Crawford and Randy Gregory should be able to make life difficult for Eli Manning. And if Manning is struggling to find time, that should make it hard for Odell Beckham to hurt the secondary. It’s not going to be easy – it never is at MetLife Stadium. But I think the Cowboys have changed enough to make a push, even as Dez Bryant doesn’t play. I really think they can pick up their game and get out of New York with a win – something like 24-20.

Eatman: While it’s easy to say the Cowboys have the Giants’ number up in New York – winning the last three games in the Meadowlands – you could also say that perhaps it’s Tony Romo that has it, and not the Cowboys. We know this team is not the same without him and Dez Bryant in the lineup, so I think you have to throw out the history here, even if it’s recent history. The Cowboys certainly don’t beat the Giants in Week 1 without Romo. But, that being said, I still think the Cowboys can and will win this game. I don’t know if Matt Cassel lights the world on fire but I think he plays well. They’ve got to figure out how to get Jason Witten going and I can see him getting at least seven catches. Brice Butler will make some plays down the field and I think the Cowboys get their first 100-yard rusher, and don’t be surprised if it’s Joseph Randle. This guy might not get all of the snaps but he’ll run well with the ones he gets and might even break off a long one. The Cowboys are healthier than the Giants, they’re more desperate than the Giants and I still think they’re a better team. Like all of these games, it’ll be closer but give me Dallas, 21-20.
