The Dallas Cowboys have been going through an absolute injury nightmare to start the 2015 NFL season.
The Cowboys lost quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant, arguably their two most important players, to injury early on in the season. That was compounded by both Sean Lee and Lance Dunbar getting hurt this weekend against the New Orleans Saints.
However, the Cowboys and their fans might finally be set for some good news, with Dez Bryant potentially returning ahead of schedule.

According to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones thinks "has a chance to return after the bye."
The timeline for Bryant's recovery and return has been uncertain since the injury occurred, as it's been reported he could return anywhere between late October and December.
Following the injury, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said the initial timetable for Bryant's return was four to six weeks. Compare that to NFL insider Ian Rapoport who said Bryant could be out for 10-12 weeks.
Cowboys fans would love to have Dez back by week seven, which would see him fit to take on NFC East rivals the New York Giants, the side he got injured against, as Dallas look to reach the playoffs.
